Hello HW friends,
I'd like to reach out to you all for some support. I'm just having one of those terrible weeks. I was so sick last weekend from a combo of the build up of side-effects from my meds & a brief period of withdrawl from having to stop the meds for several days to get over the extreme sedation they caused. My pain levels have been way up the last few days & since we are still trying to get me squared away on a good maintenance dosage, my meds are not touching it. I feel like someone is stabbing me in the eye right now. It was so bad last night, that I was crying while driving home & almost had to turn around. I'm not sleeping at all. I'm not eating. I literally just want to take my eye out, although I know that would do no good.
And on top of all this, my 2mo old computer died last week, and I got it back today only to find that the hard-drive had been replaced, and I lost EVERYTHING. Three months worth of research (which was soooo hard to do because of my eye) for a huge paper due next week, important notes that I had written to doctors & my school about
my condition & I wanted to keep on file. Everything. I'm just so upset because multiple technicians that looked at my computer/spoke to me on the phone last week told me that it was NOT a hard drive problem, and that my hard drive appeared to be intact. If I had known that they were going to have to replace it, I would have paid to have the apple store try to salvage my info from my old computer, but everyone told me not to lister. Stupid me, I listened to them, and I hadn't yet got around to buying a external hard drive since the computer was brand new.
I didn't have the money when I bought it, and I figured I'd be safe for at least a few months until I could save enough money to buy one. Lesson learned all too well. This is just one more thing I don't need. I feel like someone is out to get me.
Thanks everyone. I hope everyone is having a pain free day.
