Today, my husband revealed that he found me drunk and shoe-less in a shrub in our front garden last night, sending dirty texts to my new employee. I've recently had my meds switched and apparently can't drink now. My husband's pissed, my shoes are gone, and I can't look the new guy in the face. FML

for_fs_sake tells us more.

I called the hospital this morning and was informed by the duty nurse that yes, I definitely should have been told not to drink on the new meds. When I asked why the doc didn't mention it, she replied that "the doctor has been very busy as she's now taken on a management position and she must have forgotten". Fabulous! Happily, my husband's very understanding, and the new guy thinks it's hilaaaaaaaaaaaarious. So right now, I guess it's the lack of shoes and lack of dignity that are the real problems. And yes - I've heard I was a BLAST to drink with last night, until the whole shrub-shoe-booty-text debacle. God, I'm a moron.

You're British, so he's angry and you're "pissed." What are your new meds? I want to hand them out at the local bar, because you sound like tons of fun. Even with moderate success, I could get some free shoes.

Yikes. If you have an HR department (or anyone in an equivalent position), you might want to explain the situation to them before your new employee does. And if you haven't called your doctor yet to report what happened in case it wasn't just due to the drinking, you might do that, too.

Listen to Bibliovore, this has my vote too. Scary stuff, you could've even tried to drive. Might've been worse.

You should not drink with most prescription medication!

Yeah, agreed with 19. Isn't that just common knowledge? I'd have to say YDI,OP.

Anyone else think of the Old Greg, drinking Baileys from a shoe skit since she's from the UK?

Nope, not really. No mighty boosh references noticed.

I hope Hubby is the understanding sort. Decent fellow would be pissed at the situation, not at you personally.

There has to be some underlying attraction to the new co-worker. Otherwise, why would OP be texting him dirty things?

Since when does marriage turn off the attractive switch in someone? It's perfectly okay to think someone other than your partner is attractive or even feel a slight attraction towards that person. As long as it doesn't affect your feelings toward your spouse and you don't act on it, you're okay.

48 has it right. We remain faithful because of our inhibitions. Inebriation lowers those inhibitions, which leads to doing things one normally would not do.

So, lower your gaze when talking to the new guy. Stare at his junk.

Yes, what a great idea! It couldn't possibly get any more awkward so...why not?

I really hope you're husband is understanding. It's time to call your doctor back. I've been on plenty of psych medications, and some just really mess you up, so I understand how hard it can be. Good luck, OP.

5- *your Fuck, I feel retarded. Sorry, people.

Your doctor seriously sucks for not telling you that you can't have alcohol with your new meds.

Aren't they supposed to give you a list or something?

I think op should take the responsibility to read about the medication to see the do's and don'ts!

While I agree with you, it's part of the doctors job description to help you choose the right medication and discuss side effects with you, possible lifestyle changes, etc. Not you throw pills at you and hope they work out.

And OP confirms: "I called the hospital this morning and was informed by the duty nurse that yes, I definitely should have been told not to drink on the new meds. When I asked why the doc didn't mention it, she replied that "the doctor has been very busy as she's now taken on a management position and she must have forgotten". Fabulous!"

Also, almost all medications aren't supposed to be mixed with alcohol, but that doesn't mean it's gonna make you do crazy things while drunk. Well... Crazier things than you normally would anyway. My friend takes some meds she's technically not supposed to mix with alcohol, yet she's perfectly okay if she does.

43, I read your comment as "dirty nurse" and thought it was going to be something funny :( or kinky

Actually, its not on the doctor at all. I have worked at a pharmacy before, and it is the responsibility of the pharmacist to counsel patients on any new prescriptions. OP's pharmacist sucks (and actually broke the law).

It's your story stick to it.

I recommend NOT DRINKING. Seems to me that shit always seems to hit the fan when people get even a little tipsy.

"a little tipsy" isn't usually the problem. It's not knowing to stop there that leads to issues!

If someone does something crazy while they are "just tipsy" they are, most likely, using it as an excuse.

Or those attention whores that have one drink and act "drunk".

This is why you READ THE PRESCRIPTION ON YOUR MEDS. Seriously people, this is not complicated.

Apparently it is; "prescription" gives you permission to take a given medicine/treatment, and the dosage. I think you mean side effects/things to avoid while on the medication.

That's awkward but at least you had a good night, op, shit happens!

Hmmm, her marriage is now having problems, she could possibly get slapped with a sexual harassment suit or lose her job, and she lost her shoes. Sounds like a GREAT night to me. >_>
