So my laptop died on me yesterday. It started late Sunday evening, when Pinky first began showing ailing signs. I was hoping they would go away soon but the next day saw her condition becoming worse.
I was frantic with worry mostly because I was working on a very technical, very long-winded translation on final expense insurance quotes and seniors burial insurance. I'm so used to translating insurance brochures but this burial insurance for funeral topic requires specific terms from those I am accustomed to. This means I would basically spend a big portion of my work time researching and utilizing insurance dictionaries online. With Pinky being sick, I'd not be able to do much work online and by then, she was already freezing every few minutes and I'd have to restart her again and again before getting connection.
Honestly, how could I focus on Funeral Consumers Alliance when all I could think about was poor Pinky gradually but surely dying from her yet to be identified disease? I was also busy salvaging whatever data I could before Pinky stopped breathing for good.
Worrying about my pending insurance job plus the frustration of trying to diagnose Pinky was taking its toll on me both physically and mentally. If there's such a policy to protect one from mental stress caused by computer problems; I'd send in my insurance application immediately! Pinky was almost dead by then and I was overwhelmed with stress and practically in tears!
Anyway, I was worried all day and tired from staying up all night so after saving my data, we rushed Pinky to the PC Clinic yesterday.
The diagnosis so far is that my Windows OS seems to be malfunctioning; cause yet to be determined. I left Pinky behind at the clinic and I hope to receive some good news. The bad news however is that she is also suspected of having a hard disk infection, which I'm hoping against hopes, turns out to be negative. I do appreciate all your well wishes for my pretty pink baby on Twitter and I hope to get back online full-time soon.
