Good Chemistry – The Life and Legacy of Valium Inventor Leo Sternbach

I just received the shipment from today. I went to get it
from the post office during lunch break (Friday), which was why I

I think it’s appalling…I was told that it was inappropriate to

think you should apologize for invading my privacy. 😉

adolescence and is frequently, and unsurprisingly, associated with
other anxiety disorders and with depression. Social phobics are also at
risk from alcohol and drug dependence, since they are likely to
self-medicate, trying to use alcohol and/or drugs to overcome their

There’s a catch 22 in all this…they’re also more likely to exceed
prescibed doses and become heavily dependant on benzodiazepines. How’s
that for irony? 🙂

  1. With Valentine’s Day around the corner yes guys, it’s less than a month away, it’s not too early to begin thinking about Valentine’s Day gifts.

  2. For your Valentine’s Day party, choose on a theme and have the decorations, gifts, games, and costumes based on it. For example, if you have a jungle theme party, the guests can come as Tarzan and Jane or dress up in animal suits. Or they can don fur coats, fake horns etc. It is possible to decorate your home with some outdoor plants or can have an outdoor party itself at your backyard. You are able to go for any theme you fancy–may be an Adam-n-Eve theme, or say a classical theme ! Just let loose all your funky ideas for this day.
