So....I have about 50 billion private messages and posts I've not read.

Mostly because my internet was broke right up until just before Xmas, then I was off travelling, then I came back immediately to work, and I've not had a good nights sleep since work ended.

Also being a little bit lazy.  But mostly the former

Just to add, I'm at work for the next 3 nights, so my chances of catching up on the rest of these before then are practically nil.

Well to help you, if it involves rp it can be safely ignored.

That's saved you about 90% of the shite I would guess.

Remember, guys, if you stayed home to work and catch up on bills while your family went on vacation to Europe for a month then when they get home you need to be respectful of how rough they've had it and you need to stay up for 3 days straight with a jet-lagged baby so princess can get her fucking beauty sleep because vacations are tough, man.

I seriously feel like my head is coming apart at the seams. I don't know who's running this simulation but this iteration kind of sucks.

The first three years are super hard because of the sleep thing. Hang in there and try not to make any major decisions until she's four.

Also, your wife went on a vacation to Europe alone with a baby? That's insane. The flight alone is brutal WITHOUT a baby. What the fuck, dude, that sounds like a special kind of torture.

Her mom and stepdad live in Germany so she had plenty of help with the baby once she was there. And there's a direct flight from Seattle to Frankfurt that's only 10 hours, so it's as not-awful as it can be as far as flying overseas with a baby.

I can't speak for others, but I hate going on trips with the boy. It's easier now that he's almost 8 and fiercely independent. Still, I've done that direct flight to Frankfurt and, with a baby, it sounds like a nightmare. Every trip I have ever taken with the boy/his brother has resulted in my needing recovery time. The last time, Hawaii, we were there for a week, my family was mostly awful, except for my sister and mother, and I spent a month feeling shaky and freaked out. I would have done a lot better if I hadn't had to worry about wrangling a 5 year old, and if I had had some weed. Trips without weed are the worst. Then again, my stress-response is generally fucked.

Actually, I am supposed to go to Germany this summer and am dreading the lack of weed. They have it there, sure, but I don't really have any sources. Except for my cousin S. who just got busted by his own brother, my good-for-nothing spoiled-ass other cousin O. for petty bullshit. Now S. can't get any of the very lucrative jobs he qualified for, forever.

Sorry you're having a rough go, ECH.

Yeah, in retrospect I might have been a little harsh. We haven't exactly been a hotbed of domestic harmony lately and it really has very little to do with the stresses of having a child. If there wasn't the child I might have already reached the point of "fuck this shit" but she's an absolutely wonderful mother so that goes a long way.

That counts for a whole lot.

My unsolicited advice: babies rob you of your domestic harmony, as well as all resources, time, and energy. The reality is, all that shit take a backseat to the baby, whether you want it to or not. Babies take all those feelings of love for the other person and use them to make more poop and grow bigger. This is natural and normal. Until your kid hits 5, it's going to be like that, so embrace it, make friends with it, make a happy sacrifice, if at all possible.

I am confident you'll find your way in this, no matter what way that is.

Maybe, and I hope I am not out of line here, but maybe some of the harshness comes from feelings of guilt?

It's OK to get mad at the situation you're in. I get mad at my situation all the time, and it's basically perfect. That comes from years and years of fucking up and getting fucked over. Therapy has definitely helped me not fuck myself up, I am extremely grateful for it.

Hang in there, ECH.


I just read a thread in the youtube comments section where 30 people were trying to tell a guy who'd gone off his depression meds for personal reasons what depression is and how depression meds work.  I was torn between amusement and slapping them with science, and didn't comment.
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

So, I've started going cross-eyed and having double vision. Been like that for some time now, when I'm tired. Lately, it's been like it ALL THE TIME.

Went to the doctor's on Thursday to check it out. Was sent promptly to the neurologic department at the hospital. Was there until last night. Had all sorts of tests performed on my head. And a spinal tap. They had to try it three times. It was the absolutely worst thing I've ever experienced in my life, physically.

Nothing wrong with my head/brain tough. Waiting for an appointment at the eye specialist.
