my comp is in for repair. Easter bastarding weekend. Won't get it back til Tuesday.

Looks like might need a new hard disc. Fortunately, and the reason this is in the irritated thread rather than the pissed off thread...looks like they can save the data...as in 4000 words of my dissertation, and all my dissertation notes.

Much of it was backed up on my uni M drive. But I can't access desktop anywhere on this laptop, and even if I could, I havent backed up data since I was at 1900 words...some of the notes were backed up, some not.

Anyway. bit of a pisser.

Oh brilliant. just fecking brilliant. My laptop powerpack has blown. I have about an hour's worth of power on this thing....and a whole day of work to do. I am going to have to print off whta I have so far before it dies and then move onto writing by hand in a note book. How bloody annoying. I can't write half so fluidly by hand. For fuck sake. I am cursed. I have like 6 days to get the first draft finished and could really do without this bullshit.


*sighs*

Won't be able to get my comp back until Wednesday. It'll be ready tomorrow, but i don't get paid til Weds, to cover the repair charge.

Grrrr.

Spam getting past gmail. Gmail is really good at filtering spam, but once in a while some clever spam-monkey figures out a new way to get past the filters.

Wow really? I've had my gmail account for 5 years or so and have never had a spam email make it to my inbox. I usually get 3-4 a day in the spam folder. Today I had 18. Thought that was odd.

There was a misunderstanding between me talking to H about my prescription, who talked to J, who faxed it through to my GP, who signed it off and printed it out.

I wanted Citalopram and Trazadone.
Last prescription for Citalopram was for 14 tablets. This one was for only 7 (why?)
Last prescription for Trazadone was for 50mg daily - I asked for an increase and was told I could get one. I got 50mg again, and only 7 tablets.

I also got vitamin B tablets FOR THREE MONTHS?! despite understanding that I only needed them while I was officially on detox. Three weeks since I last touched alcohol suggests to me that my body is probably into recovery right now.

And I can't get an appointment with my own GP until Tueday week.
So I have to call up and go through it all with a receptionist Monday morning, in order to get an appointment with another GP, then go through it all with him/ her.

I should have checked there and then, but I had to wait 15 minutes because they'd lost the first script somewhere between it being signed and me turning up, so I was already stressed just because things weren't going to plan. I didn't check til after I got home from the pharmacy - directly opposite the doctors - and by then the practice was shut.

It sounds silly, but these sort of things make me really anxious.

Why do they only give you scripts for only a week at a time??? It just doesn't sound practical.

Having had a chance to think it through while I was typing that up, I think it might be something to do with budgets.

The first Trazodone was written on a script from the centre I was at.
I think they expected me to go to my GP to continue with it.
But although I showed my GP the script that day, I hadn't yet had it filled, so obviously she didn't need to prescribe me more.
No-one told me that I needed to see my GP for a continuation of the medication, I assumed the psychiatrist at the centre would see me again before discharge.

So I think the new instructions were based on what the centre had on file for me previously. And although it was being issued by the GP practice (who usually supply things on a monthly basis) they adhered to the amounts specified.

I'll sort it out Monday. I'm just grumpy because joined up healthcare for people with complex needs (me, apparently) is supposed to stop the patient having to do this.

I have to take it, I will not sleep without it. I might doze off but then wake up around 2am feeling like I have a live wire plugged into me and wont get back to sleep. I rarely remember my dreams on it.

I take ambien, along with other natural teatments, like valarian, melatonin or tryptophan. I'm not taking ambien right now. I have to stop every now and then because it stops working.

If you're going to use a damned robocaller, use one that's smart enough not to spout 90% of your message at my voice mail greeting, leaving nothing but your phone number after the beep.
