Needs work![edit]

I've done some copy-editing, removing the word "you" several times and removing irrelevant text copied from other Wikipedia article(s). Much of the remainder still doesn't make sense (when is "spontaneous wake time" for someone who wakes many times per day?) The article needs work and paring. --Hordaland (talk) 03:29, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

OK, so I've worked and pared, also removing or rewording several instances of COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS. Such violations are, of course, not tolerated in Wikipedia. The references still need formatting and checking. --Hordaland (talk) 18:39, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments and work. This is my first significant article so I am still learning. I've corrected the problems with the citations and clarity that you've mentioned here or marked in the article. So far I have not had a chance to work on the formatting and checking of references that you've suggested. I hope that I will have a chance to do that soon. This is a new article and hopefully it will continue to be improved over time.--Nohoguy (talk) 05:37, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

new section[edit]

The voice and tone of this article is completely different from a very similar article here (I do realize and understand the difference between the articles). I feel like the other article is saying "People with this disorder find it impossible to sleep at 'normal societal' times, even after trying sleeping pills, home remedies, method x, method y, and method z. Research has found a 50% comorbid relationship between this disorder and clinical depression, which leads researchers to believe there is really no correlation between this disorder and the mental diseases that are typical with most sleep disorders (such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia)." and I feel like this article is saying "Just go to sleep at the right times! Take sleeping pills! Also, because most sleep disorders have some correlation with severe mental disorder, you are crazy! There is no help for you." Why is there such a stark contrast between the tone of these two articles? (talk) 10:26, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

The other article has been worked on by many people with DSPS over a much longer period than this one. This one is, I suspect, not worked on by anyone with the disorder. I've never heard of anyone with this disorder who isn't dement, have you? People with ISWD are (mainly) cared for by other people, so this article may be aimed at the carers -- and that may be a factor.
Fixes are welcomed (as long as they are sourced), of course. --Hordaland (talk) 13:27, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
