<It is as valid a point as suggesting they are all cheaters who take it to enhance their performance.>


I just can't buy that having experienced the difference personally and had my stage fright very much lessened using beta blockers after more than ten years of the ways you approve of not help at all. I remind you I spent time and money on therapy, hypnosis, and even was a part of a study at a major university.

The discussion at the study was about the burden we shared. These were wonderful musicians, who played with the major symphonies and orchestras in the San Francisco Bay Area. Job related stress is incredible. I assume you just have no empathy or don't perform under really high stress or something. All had, being intelligent people, tried a great variety of cures. Their jobs were at stake.

I look at my boys and my friend's girl. She loves music and wants to be a musician. She hopes to be a teacher who performs. Because of her lack of calmness under pressure, likely a biochemical nature, perhaps within normal, she will not be able to without assistance. My boys don't get stage fright, beta blockers would not help them. Mind you my boy was in competition with this girl for the various music awards given when they graduated. I did not think of her as having cheated, I understood how she could not play in public without the overwhelming physical response. She would have been robbed of the recognition of her ability and I would have been robbed of hearing her talent had a way not been found to conquer her fear.
