Worked a day accidentally high

Posted 01-27-2016 at 08:54 PM by Job McYossie
So I'm sick. Very sick. I'm coughing hard all the time and producing mucus like crazy. I, just before leaving for work, take a dose of Delsym, and perhaps I slightly overfilled my cup because I felt like real shit and I work in foodservice. So I get to work, the meds are def working and I feel fine. I get in the back and start doing dishes and my boss comes back and gives me a bottle of Dayquil and says "here's a present." Trying not to be rude, I take a dose in front of him. Then, behold, I learn that one of the main ingredients in Dayquil is the same in the Delsym, which I already took a little too much of.

And so I spent 2 hours washing dishes and zoning out, and it all felt like maybe 15 minutes. No hallucinations, thankfully, but it was surprisingly enjoyable. I actually forgot I was sick at a point.

What's funny is yesterday I was suicidal and considering getting high on cough syrup on purpose.

I once got pissed at my last job as a warehouse operative, it was much less fun than what you describe.

Sorry to hear you're feeling suicidal though. It's a dark fucking place to be when you consider offing yourself as a valid escape from your problems, if you ever need to chat HMU pal.

I'm really really sorry you've been feeling suicidal and I wish I knew what to say or do to help. Just, don't do anything like that because people care about you.

man I figured people would be commenting about the working high part not the minor mention of suicide.

we've had our fair share of suicide scares on the forums, that's why many of us take it seriously. and so it should be, it's a serious thing.

try smoking weed, you might like the high. just for the record, drugs should only be used recreationally and never as an 'escape'. you're going to have problems and gain an addictive personality if you use drugs to escape the life you live.

smoke weed. i actually advise that. weed doesn't give you cancer and helps sufferers of MS as well as other wasting diseases (medical marijuana), reducing the symptoms considerably. weed is good, whether via bong, spliff or atomizer. one day the powers that be will realize how much money there is to be made and legalize it.

at least i hope so.

Job will smoke anything and everything that can be combusted with a pocket lighter.

I once saw her smoke some socks just because she could.

i thought so, and that's cool. i hate having to explain to people who misconstrue our joking around as being mean that we aren't actually being mean. it's called having a sense of humour.
