Life sucks.
First, I realized this morning that I haven't had my thyroid medication for at least... 3 days? I filled up my meds for the week (last Friday AM), and only had 5 of them. Which means my last was on Tuesday. So I was at least 3 days without my med, and as I have *no* thyroid (thanks to thyroid cancer), I'm pretty much screwed without it. Which I guess explains why I've been tired so much earlier in the evening, been tired, and had a hard time waking up recently.

I used to pull them out of each bottle daily, so I knew when I was running low. And with the weekly thing? Usually fine, because I know when I'm down to just a few, and call in a refill. But I have been so busy. My last day without travel or work was April 13th, my next one will be... July 4th, and I'll have Fri-Sun off! Of course, the SO is leaving for DC for a week on the 6th, so... not too restful. Then it's the 20th of July, then August 2-3, 17th, & 30-31st.

Christ, I haven't spelled it out like this before. I *knew* it had been a while, but... I'm on day 61, of 81. And yes, I *did* travel on 4 of the weekends - three to California for family stuff (flying down Friday/back Sunday twice, down Sat back Sun once), and to Washington DC (leaving Sat/back Tuesday). So I guess *technically* I had some time off, but it was not restful in any way.

And I've been sick... repeatedly. I was sick a week before my first April trip, again in mid-May, and I'm getting sick again. Probably doesn't help, the schedule I'm working, and the fact that I've been exposed to hundreds (or thousands) of people, what with the traveling, and especially sightseeing in DC.

And it's been June-uary forever here. Well, there *was* a bit of sun last night (which I soaked in after work), and tonight (couldn't get out in it because of a facial). But it's upper 50's to 60 in the day, and 45 at night. My plants aren't growing for anything, because it's still practically winter here. Today, when I got in the car after work? It was sunny, but I ran the heater all the way home, because my skin felt icky, and anything cold (or even remotely cool) was unpleasant.

And during one of my returns home, I turned on the computer, started Mozilla, and noticed that my favorite link bar at the top was empty!! WTF!!! I was just doing a fly by computer check, so I just typed in where I wanted to go, figuring I'd re-set up my link bar.

And today? I went to look for a bookmark... and they're all gone! Every single stinking one of them. All my QaF stuff, all my container gardening, all my fish stuff, and everything... gone. I've been keeping my bookmarks forever, I must have had several hundred, all filed by category.

This, on top of everything else, is feeling like the straw that broke the camel's back.

I just freaking can't take it anymore. And I've got 3 weeks to go.

hey, the bookmark thing may not be a permanent loss - firefox likes to switch profiles on you from time to time. it used to happen much more frequently. give the instructions here a try, or google "recover firefox profile" or something along those lines - you should find step-by-step instructions for getting everything back. good luck! i'm sorry things are rough.

Thanks for the excellent info, but because I was travelling, and distracted, and had just flown by to check e-mail a few times, and the computer was left on for the last week... it's been more than 5 days. I have no bookmark file left, they've all been overwritten.

*cries*

I'm sorry thing have been so bad, *hugs*

As for the bookmarks thing, once you've got them back try an online service. I use http://del.icio.us/ . That way I always have all my bookmarks no matter where I am and since they are well organized with tags and descriptions I tend to save more things with it.

As I try to rebuild, I'll do that.

I'm trying to look at it as a house fire. It was unexpected, sudden, with irreversible consequences. It cannot be undone, so all I can do is go on from here.

The thing that makes me cry is all my QaF links, years and years of them... gone.

Sissy, I love you.

You don't have to work like you do.

Your health is more important.

Knock it off.

If I have to come to WA and kick your ass to get you to take a break and not kill yourself I will.

And I'll bring mom and dad...think how nice and stressful that would be.

Love -
