Neither Fly nor That nor Flag


Any interesting stories to tell about how your ED has affected your work or school life? I'll share one specific moment.

On Wednesday my boss called me at 11 a.m. to see if I could come in to work at 1 p.m. Most unfortunate timing: I had spent the last 24 hours or so wide awake on an eating binge, and I didn't have the emotional capacity or the physical alertness to be able to do my job as I should.

Anyway, seeing as how I was tired, somewhat drunk and lightheaded, I was slow to think of a good excuse when my boss called. I should have said, "Sorry, Boss, but I already had plans scheduled," and left it at that. But I actually told the truth and said I hadn't gone to bed yet. That allowed for a few awkward seconds of nervous laughter on both ends -- surely he must have thought, "Who is this freak I hired?" -- and my apologizing, until he accepted the fact that I was an idiot and said he would call someone else.

The more I think about it, it's lame I was asked to come in two hours before I needed to be there. Just call me at midnight if it's absolutely necessary!
