I took the photo below, just now. I mean I am more quirky than weird [eye twitch]. And I only drink a lot, like four or five days a week. Mostly my depression is manageable and gets punctuated by those awesome spells where I spend all my money and don't need any sleep so that is totally *not* the same. I hate all stereotypes. Since I can't upload images from Photobucket to this site, here is a photo I took with my phone, from Google, this morning. I sort of thought the one which my friend sent me was a gag. Not really, I guess. Us writers are loveable, passionate and cuddly but perhaps only truly able to be understood by other writers. Only another writer would understand the concept of waking up at three AM to get something out. And then continuing until two in the afternoon. Then passing out from mental exhaustion and not knowing what day it is for a while. Sure, for us, that is perfectly understandable. Even normal and to be encouraged! But your co-workers may assume you need to be watched perhaps a bit more carefully for other odd behaviors I know I wouldn't want any of you to be anything other than what you are. And rather than watch you more carefully, I wish we could all be left to our own devices for long enough to get some work done, uninterrupted.
