You Don’t Over Eat Because You’re Disabled, You’re Disabled Because You Over Eat

It’s rare to find lawyer taking a sensible, normal stance on something.  But that’s just what happened when employment lawyers balked at the idea that excessive gambling and over eating would be added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.  The ADA already specifically denies compulsive gambling as a disability, but listing over eating as a mental disorder may give legal protection to people with no self control when it comes to food.

I have a mental condition that severely impacts my ability to work as a lawyer.  I have a strong, involuntary aversion to making anything into a bigger deal than it is.

I can’t work late nights or weekends on projects that don’t need to be finished any time soon.  I become incredibly nauseous when something is labeled “urgent” or an “emergency” when it is not.  I am overcome with violent rage when I am forced to cancel my plans because a partner forgot to assign something weeks ago and now it needs to be done right away.

I suffer from Juris Hysteria Deficit, and I’d like my condition to be protected.

    Fat chicks will generally screw you without a fuss. Problem is you have to screw a fat chick.
