Q:No one mentioned Oliver Sacks book, "Hallucinations" to you? Check out the NPR interview online. He's pretty much the shit when it comes to anything relating to hallucinations. I just had a hallucination like that a few weeks ago. I woke in the middle of the night to see before me in the far corner of the room, spiders hanging from unnaturally thick spider webs. I hope it's normal??...
Nope, I haven’t heard of that - I’ll look into it, thanks! Also I don’t know if it’s any consolation, but in my googling of this issue, people saying they see spiders is by far the most common report, so at least you aren’t alone.
Does anybody else experience or know about hypnagogic hallucinations? (momentarily seeing objects/people/shapes that aren’t really there when you’re waking up/falling asleep) (not as a result of nightmares/drugs/mental disorders)
I want companionship but I hate people
if you feel this way, you’re probably an introvert! because an introvert’s brain stays at a higher state of arousal than an extrovert, lots of socializing can cause overstimulation (which translates into feeling overwhelmed). this is why introverts do well with just a few strong relationships and need lots of alone time to recharge after being around people.
introverts make up around 30% of the population, but that number is likely much higher on Tumblr (it’s an activity that attracts introverts).
As you know 5 is my favorite book, although that’s because I find it the most interesting in terms of investigating the world you seem to have little interest in…
Actually I find the wizarding world to be the most interesting part (as opposed to the characters) so that sounds like a good thing to me.
oh no the non-fandom lesbians have found my r&i drawing again
I wish male business contacts wouldn’t always include some awkward personal obstacle like “when are we going to get drinks ;)” or “we should do lunch so I can give you your check” in work emails/messages that makes every one difficult to deal with. I wish I could just reply “hey, I updated your website like you asked” and be done, instead of having to also think of an excuse to fend off your social invitation (again).
