I am having a week from Hell.
I think I’m seeing a trend with my new meds, although it might be too early for me to be sure. I take it once a week, split into two doses on Sunday PM and Monday AM. It hits my mood on Monday and lingers until Tuesday or Wednesday, casting a layer of depression over me for those couple of days.
This week, our car broke down, which didn’t help things, but our Prelude is an Older Car and we still have my Accord which is shiny and newish. And the fix-it price wasn’t horrible. So no biggie.
But then the hard drive on my laptop totally fubared itself on Tuesday. And all of the techs and all of their tools couldn’t put it back together again. I am not screaming on the floor in a padded room because I made backups, but only of the things that I would scream on the floor in a padded room about if I lost. Other Very Important files are gone to the place where deceased bytes dwell, leaving me extremely unhappy but not devastated. The techs I have been on the phone with and consulting since then inform me that it’s something that “happens” and that we’re nearing the life-cycle of these particular systems, which is why we’re scheduled to get replacements in a few months.
Oh why couldn’t the damn thing have held out on its brain implosion for a few more months?
Hardware/mechanical issues always leave me feeling powerless and depressed, and so I’ve got a double whammy going on in my head.
I had that laptop for something like five years. There was a LOT of data on that thing. All gone.
