Postcards from purgatory

Not much has changed here. I won't be able to get in to see the Surgeon for a consultation for another 2 1/2 weeks. I'm highly displeased. I suppose I'll keep refilling my pain pill prescription (which really doesn't help-but I need SOMETHING) until then.
I think it's my computer modem that's utterly screwed. I had to dig out my old Windows 95-AOL 6.0 to get back online. This is the icing on my cake. Let me tell you. I have a short story and my second novel that I can't even touch until I get the other computer back online. This computer doesn't have the means, and it shuts down on a whim ALL THE TIME.
I haven't been writing much since sitting for long periods of time is unpleasant. All in all-Pffftttt.
I hope to have the computer fixed, or a new modem by this weekend.

And I'm out of Diet Pepsi. Shoot me now.

I hope everyone's writing is flowing and the personal lives are wonderful. I'll get around to catching up when my computer is fixed. And I bet I have LOTS to catch up on.

Poor Crystal--you've had your share of suckiness lately. I hope your computer's soon fixed and I really hope you find some relief. It's outrageous that you have to wait, but it's the same here.

No Diet Pepsi?!! Sacrilege! ;-)

That really stinks you have to wait so long! And with no Diet Pepsi!? It's torture!

Rene said...

Oh man, that really is horrible. I can't believe they are taking so long with this. Computer problems are hell on earth. Hope they clear up soon.

Michelle said...

Hugs, Chrys! And yikes on the computer problems. That always gives me the heebies.

bummer on the computer problems and the wait for the consult. But no diet Pepsi??? That just ISN'T RIGHT!

Amy said...

Hope the stars align right very soon and you are blessed with an early appointment and a working computer...and caffeine!

It's awful things have been so hinky for you lately. I don't know, Crys, that seems an awful long time to wait for you, esp. being in such pain. :(

Tori said...

Hugs, Crystal!!! It's bad enough you have to be in so much pain, but adding computer problems and a lack of your favorite drink is just too much!

This really sucks because you're such a nice person and there's so many other people who need these things to happen to them instead!

Huge hugs!

Maybe you're just one of those lucky people who's getting all of thier bad luck in a lump sum rather than spread out annoyingly all over the year.

Maybe you even got two years' worth??

I hope you're feeling much better soon. Are you at least lucky enough to get a slightly jaundiced tan? That would be a wee bonus...

I'm so sorry about the long wait to see the surgeon. That's terrible!!!

Remove the modem in the Device Manager and let Windows redetect it. Than allow AOL to redetect it and see if that makes any difference.

Sorry to hear about not seeing your doc. That must suck. Take it easy and take good care of yourself. As for the computer, they are a royal pain in the butt most of time. But don't let that stop you from writing. Get a notebook and jolt down your stories.

Stomach AND computer problems. Hope you get both fixed really soon.

Olga said...

I join the above. I hope you'll get better soon and the computer will be fixed. My best wishes of health to you, Chrys!
