Sleep Schedule, Widower, MH(-) 

I became a morning person against my will after Kelli died. Regardless of what time I went to bed, I was up at 4:30-5:00am without an alarm. Apparently this is a sign of depression, which doesn't shock me at all considering when it started for me.

I managed to bring that time down to 6am, but only got to enjoy it for a couple weeks before it rubber banded back to 4am.

I wouldn't mind so much except my friends are mostly night owls.

Current read: "Technically wrong" by Sara Wachter-Boettcher.

I've barely started and it already feels like a mandatory reading for anyone involved in tech.

So okay.

Can someone send me links to anti-harassment tech y'all know of? I have a few in mind but like in the realm of ActivityPub, a tool could work.

Please boost.
