I’ve had to deal with my computer not working properly all day today.
I had work, and when I got there, my email programme wouldnt open up.
I reinstalled it, but it still wouldnt open for me.
Eventually, I had to use a different email programme.
I came home, and went on the computer, and eventually I fixed it.
I’ve been using outlook express, which is a very old email programme, but there is a version for windows and thats what I am using.
Anyway, its fixed now, and everything looks ok again.
Thank goodness I was able to still work today, as I had windows livemail on my machine, and so I was able to use that, and get my call list that my supervisor emailed on to me.
Well it turns out that I was the cause of my internet not working! Well not my internet, but my email. I was trying to set it up on my mac. I entered what I thought was my password, only to find out that actually I’d changed it and was entering in the wrong one.
Lol. I am so stupid sometimes! I cant believe I forgot I’d changed it!
Anyway all is good now! It works! I managed to set up my account on the mac, and all is fine with it!
I’m so frustrated, I can’t get into my email account, I was trying to set it up on my Mac and it wouldn’t set up, then I realised it wouldn’t let me login on my other Windows PC either, or on my phone.
I tried and tried and just got more and more frustrated. So I went and took a shower. I’m done now and still I can’t get into it.
The joys of computers and email. I love them but sometimes they frustrate me to no end.￼￼￼
I want to cry. I feel so awful. Will crying help? Who knows. I just feel intense sadness. Thank god for Nitro. Thank god for his cuddles. I badly need them right now. I really dont know what I’d do without him. I’d be lost. Lost in a sea of overwhelm. He calms me. He keeps me sane. He needs me. I cant fold. I have to be there for him. I have to look after him. If I didnt have him I’d curl up in bed and never come out. I’d just hide. I really feel like hiding right now. I am in so much emotional pain tonight. I just feel so down. Depressed. Anxious. Its neverending. Its a horrible way to feel. I wish it would go away. I’m going to make a cup of tea. Watch a little tv for distraction. Then maybe read, if I can concentrate on my book. Must remember to take my night meds. Must forget them. I’m trying to do better about taking them. Its an uphill battle. Wonder if I’ll sleep tonight. I never did fix my mac. I tried everything. I dont know how to fix it. May ask on facebook as I have a lot of blind friends on there. Perhaps one of them has a mac and can help me out. We’ll hope.
In my stupidity while playing on my mac, I muted the voice. And I dont know how to turn it back on again.
I’ll have to go in to the apple store with my mac now. See if they can fix it. And while I am in there I’ll have them set up my email address as well.
I tried and tried to do it but couldnt. I couldnt authorise my google account.
But now, my main problem is that I have no speech on my mac, its muted, so the mac is literally useless to me. I tried googling the command to unmute the voice, if anyone knows what it is you might let me know. It will be the command to unmute voice over on the mac.
If anyone can find that, I’d appreciate it.
I gave up on the mac for tonight. I got frustrated. I managed to update it without too much hassle. but then I decided to try to set up my email. it was a bust. I fiddled around with it for a good 20 minutes. no joy. I was trying to authorize my google account in safari. I couldn’t do it. so I said, fuck it, as you do, and quit. i’ll leave it for another day. I cant be arsed. lol.
i’m too wound up. wired to the moon. and I haven’t had too much caffeine either tonight! actually I haven’t had any since around 6 pm!
but at least I managed to update the mac to the latest version! go me or something? some shit like that?
can we say I am pissy? cuz well hell I am!
Hope this gets to the list.
