Never ignore your gut.

I knew.

I knew when he interviewed that he seemed high.

I knew when I started seeing skin lesions, that he had a high probability of being an addict.

I knew he was withdrawn. Unsocial.

I knew when he called in sick, that he probably wasn’t.

Yet, his productivity was phenomenal. His attention to detail was above average. He was fantastic.

When he passed out at his desk, I knew that all those other times had been telling me something that I had dismissed.

He was an addict.

I should have seen the signs as a huge red flag. But I ignored them.

Heroin. Meth. Cocaine. He had done all of them in the last few months apparently. And I could have intervened sooner.

But I didn’t.
