I wanted to apologize for how I acted to, well, just about everyone this last week. For those who don't know, my laptop charger broke so I was functionally left without a computer.

I did not take it well, and turned into a raging hosebeast.

This wasn't really just about the computer, not exactly... most of the folks who watch this journal know that I've got rapid-cycling Bipolar II, severe anxiety problems, and anger management issues. The crux there? I've been off my medication for more than a year. Now that I'm on SSI, I can get the assistance I need in order to get it again, but before a few weeks ago I wasn't able to. And.. you know... funny thing about depression: When you have it, you don't have the motivation to do what's needed to help the depression. It's like a muddy hole you can't QUITE crawl out of.

The tl;dr of this all is simple. Even as soon as last Sunday (when I first found out about the laptop problem) I said a bunch of things that I didn't quite mean, out of anger or panic.

I apologize to any and all I may have hurt in that time, and wanted to reassure you all that steps are being taken to try to prevent such panic attacks in the future.

Thank you for your time.

GUESS WHO HAS A NEW (disclaimer: not actually new, perhaps a bit rickety) LAPTOP THAT IS ENTIRELY HIS.

YOUR MOM.

For those interested, the nitty gritty:

Dell Latitude D610
1 GB RAM
30 GB HD (eww)
Win 7 Pro

The Wireless card isn't working (thank god for having a USB dongle) and the M on the keyboard is borked (thank god for having a USB keyboard) but other than that it is running great so far. Power cord feels a little loose, but charges without any problem whatsoever. Touchpad has a LOT of wear, but was looking at getting a USB mouse anyway. (USB OVERLOAD AGHAHGHG)

Runs a little hot, but this week's DIS should show if that's a major problem or not.

I AM BACK, MOFOS. Thank you, [personal profile] opalinesque.
