Do You Have… Clinomania?
October 22, 2015
Everyone’s guilty of going online and searching for the strangest phobias, the weirdest manias, the most out there preoccupations our incredible minds seem to occupy themselves with. For our intents and purposes at Maple Harbour, we came across one particular clinical obsession we feel deserves a little more attention in the pop culture sphere.
Like our Tumblr says, you just can’t deny it. You and I both know that your relationship with your bed is unnatural, obsessive and borderline creepy. But let’s face it, you wouldn’t have it any other way. At Maple Harbour we understand this passion. But what happens when said passion gets taken too far?
Clinomania is defined as the excessive desire to stay in bed. This particular desire, for those suffering from this very real and clinical condition, may linger and persist for days, with an especially strong urge to stay in bed during any kind of outdoor precipitation. Rain or snow is like kryptonite to the clinomaniac, whose urge and very real desire to stay in bed is literally understood by experts and physicians alike as… you guessed it… a type of madness.
While clinomania seems sweetly humorous and fun in theory to the general population – we all love our beds and definitely don’t want to leave them, especially when it’s snowing or raining outside – it can unfortunately also be a precursor to, or a symptom of, depression. Fun in theory, but certainly not in practice.
Okay. Maybe a little fun in practice.
