Do I have a drinking problem?

Hallucinations, distortions, micropsia, macropsia, oh my! Lately I've experienced some weird effects after taking no more than ONE DRINK: 1) heightened taste sensation (a single sip can strike me as tasting like cherry tart, custard, pineapple, roast turkey, toffy and hot buttered toast, all rolled into one), 2) weird body dysmorphia (is that the right word?), in which I feel smaller than a mouse one moment, and the next, it's like "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" or something, then 3) suddenly I'll find myself crying a river. Literally. [more inside]

Can a misfit ever shape up?

I have trouble fitting in at work. Most of my coworkers seem to be a bunch of squares who follow the company line to a T. Everyone here certainly seems to have a very two-dimensional view of the world. But work is just piling up faster and faster and I'm starting to think I'm just not made for this job. Each day is an endless puzzle. I just can't seem to connect with others, like no matter how much I twist and turn there's always a gap left between. I feel like I'm falling. Help! [more inside]

Talk about a door jam

Help! I went for a meal at a friend's house. At first everything seemed so sweet, but now I'm stuck in this uncomfortable situation, half in, half out; friends no help at all. Wondering if any Mefites have lube suggestions?
