All I know is that depression sucks - big time...

Some days I think my Celexa isn't doing anything at all for me.

Sometimes you can build up a resistance to it - might be good to get it checked

the Base Doc just upped me to 40 mg a few weeks ago. I'm sure things will get better, its just a few days in a row when it seems the universe is aligned against me.

That was one of the main reasons I chose to wean myself off of the stuff. Severe depression- and on an antidepressant?

Something not adding up.

A few months ago my daughter knocked over my old (my first) 2TB hard drive (and as it was booting up) from the sounds it was making it was 'repairable' (from home at least) just needed a different drive to move the files to - as the "recovery process" would make the drive unusable afterward, I have done this before years ago

This drive had years of backed up tax information, family pictures, family movies, digital comics, old games, tons of Trek eBooks (fasa game books) and gigs of pictures from all over the place (many of which are from sites no longer around)

Well it took a few months but I did manager to buy a new drive to replace it, and did get it open easily (have done it before to others for recovery's) and did manage to get the arm unstuck... and then go to find the head on the 3rd set of arms were bent.. FML

I'm most angry at the lost family pictures & movies, will have to stay on the look out for a similar drive to steal the drive heads from to see if I can get anything recovered


So, if anyone knows of a used Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 2TB USB 3.0 - hit me up.

What the model number of the drive. You look to have the skills. You just need the parts.

Been a pretty crappy week, was honored at take my boss position a few months ago, an interim position with possibility of permanent - made me excited, was something I was looking forward to trying to get it when my boss told us that he was retiring last year.

Just found out today - I don't get it, job is going to a friend of the boss's boss, from his previous job. No experience in our area of work, have to train him from ground up.
Afterward I'm to take back my old position, not happy about it, but I'll do it.
Only problem, no vehicle for me to drive - a different worker blew the motor in his truck my first week in position, and they still haven't replaced the truck, and he has my old truck.
Probably going to quit as soon as I can find something else, told wife if I didn't get the position we could move to another state.

Understand where your comming from completely. In a similar situation at work. Busted my ass for 4 months, to get into a sous chef possistion and was told that I'm not personable enough, and that the boss was going to hire an old associate from his previous place of employment to fill said possistion.

Crappy thing is, most all the employees still come to me instead of the sous with there problems... just have to wait it out and see what happens
