3. Say that you’re really embarrassed about having to go through this and it’s why you haven’t reached out for help sooner.
4. Never mention any past drug use, eating disorders, depression, or sleeping issues. These are all deal breakers.
5. And last but not least, make sure you keep looking all around the room, ask your doctor to repeat himself at least 5 times, and pick-up something in his office and play with it. Just trust me.
Side Note: If you aren’t good at playing the innocent victim, you could also take the “I was on it in the past but I tried life without it and I can’t accomplish anything” approach. It’s a little bit more risky but it requires less of a performance.
