I have no children. I’m getting kind of older, so I probably won’t ever have any (for a number of reasons, actually). I have a good but not great job. I don’t live in America, but close enough (Canada). I’m white and fucking privileged. Read more

From what I understand, they diagnose IH based on a multiple sleep latency test, which is also the test used for at least one kind of narcolepsy. It measures the time it takes for you to enter REM sleep at four or five different points during the day when you’re asked to try to go to sleep, and it’s usually performed Read more

Oh, hi, I just saw your post about hypothyroidism. I guess probably idiopathic hypersomnia isn’t relevant, haha. Do you find that hypothyroid drugs help with not sleeping so much? Or do you still sleep 18 hours with the drugs?

Before I started taking Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine, which is usually prescribed for ADHD/ADD), I would sleep for about 12 hours/night and nap for 3-4 hours during the day when I could (on the weekends). None of this made me feel rested. I was a zombie, barely able to think or remember anything, often dozing off on Read more

This isn’t from when I was a kid (I think I picked it up when I lived in Germany), but I feel like more people should know about sour cream and maple syrup on waffles. DELICIOUS. Bacon can also be added. It’s perfect for people who don’t like their waffles too sweet!

Like many others, I’m jumping on the Marie Kondo bandwagon and tidying up this weekend. I’m not going full-on KonMari, but I’m working away at stuff at my own pace and in my own order. I went to IKEA today and bought some boxes to put little stuff in, so that’s what I’m doing now. Read more

This thread is AMAZING. So true about the books. (Though I’m not all outraged about Marie Kondo’s take, either. It seems very reasonable to me.)

Me! Having some IPA and watching Misery. I’m going to my parents’ place tomorrow and get to hang out with my dog for a solid week and a half... then onto my resolution to stop drinking (again).

I still haven’t broken up with him. I was about to... and then he kind of said what I’d been wanting him to say? But I don’t know if I can get back to a place of actually wanting to spend time together. I’ve kind of gotten used to my single ways again (basically, eating and watching and doing what I want when I want). Read more

This sounds like Darkest Night to me, though I don’t recognize all the scenarios. (I do listen to it at night before I go to sleep, so I might just have missed things...)

Yeah. Lowering my expectations has pretty much lowered my interest in the relationship as well, though I feel a lot less distressed after I stopped putting in so much effort. I might give it another week? But I don’t really see things turning around.

We’ve only been together around six months, but looking back, things started falling off around month three. I’ve initiated several conversations about how I’m feeling/what I’m lacking in the relationship, but instead of making any effort to change, he just says he’s sorry he’s let me down. I don’t really have any Read more

Hi everyone! I haven’t been around in a while, but I need somewhere to vent for a couple minutes. Read more

I’m drinking beer tonight because I confessed my love to the man I’ve been dating and I think he’s going to break up with me.

To me, part of the reason that Ghomeshi is particularly creepy is because he studied feminism and was a pretty serious activist back in his university days. He cannot use the excuse that he was ignorant of the power structures surrounding relationships between men and women, and in a way he used his reputation as a Read more
