  1. “Get honest about how you’re using alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, pain killers and other drugs to simulate well-being or cover discomfort”

    Honestly? Constantly and effectively.

  2. I wasn’t going to spam the comments here with this, but my thesis is pretty related to this topic, so I figured I’d post a link to the survey and see if anyone wants to help out a fellow Autostraddler. Plus, you could win an Amazon gift card! Here’s the info:

    “Hello, I am a Smith College student working on my honors thesis. Please consider helping me out with my project by taking this brief online survey. All participants will be entered into a raffle for one of six $25 Amazon gift certificates. You can complete the survey at any time at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SmithCollegeThesisProject. Thank you for your help!”

    • I have a survey addiction (probably not good for my privacy) so I really wanna do this! But do you only want info from people inside the US? (It got awkward when I saw the ‘categorize your family background’, my country doesn’t really use those terms or make those distinctions that much.)

      • 31 probably looked very confusing. See, people think I’m too thin and possibly anorexic, but I eat a little more than is probably healthy. And I try to convince people that I’m not EXTREMELY thin by pointing out my stomach flab, but then they say “OMG! You’re anorexic because you worry about your stomach flab!” No, I’m just tryna get you to shut up and stop offering me pies! *headdesk*

  3. 59 is increasingly difficult to do as my hormonal transition from male to female is going very badly.
    Being seriously depressed, 67 and 71 are mostly impossible and of course, despite sleeping 10-12 hours a day, 65 is probably off as well.
