Lost my longest post ever on MyLot. What's the longest you've lost?

I was writing in great detail this evening about how my young friend at the preschool is speaking much better now. (He's the one who understood everything last school year, but barely spoke.) I was distracted by a phone call, and when I came back to finish up the post, it was frozen, and then gone. I wasted only about 30 minutes of my life, but I'm sad you won't get to read the details. I won't try again right now. What's the longest post you've lost on MyLot? Have you ever been around a child who didn't really speak until he was three or four?

I am not sure if this happened to me in mylot. I did have a similar thing happen in Virily. I was creating a quiz and I needed to insert a picture. I thought that I can do a drag/drop type of thing. When I tried that it took me to a different site and when I hit the back button to go back to my quiz all the questions I had created were gone. :( I was really upset. I am not sure what I did but somehow the questions managed to reappear. Sometimes on mylot though, I may write a discussion and hit the button to publish but it will buffer for a while and not get published and I have to do restart the discussion. Good thing I copy the discussion text before hitting the publish button.
I've been around a child who didn't speak till he was four. His parents made him watch videos of Mr. Bean since he was a year old on an iPad every time they got tired taking care of him. I knew there was something wrong with the kid when he turned two and still wasn't uttering any words at all. The kids was diagnosed with autism.
I have a grand daughter who is hearing impaired. I'm trying to improve my knowledge of FSL (Filipino sign language). If I am writing a long article, I tend to save it after completing each paragraph in order not to accidentally lost the entire post which is very frustrating.

I know it's happened to me a few times . . . I can't remember what they were about now, but poof and it got zapped to nowhere . My son has a friend who didn't really speak for the longest time - you could barely understand the few words he had, and he couldn't put sentences together. However, you could tell he understood exactly what you're saying - and he did follow directions. His mom didn't really get help for him, but he improved greatly once he started school - he was told he had a lazy tongue.

I've lost a post, several times. It's never material that I write down on paper, instead it's what I'm thinking, at that very moment. It's disappointing, when this happens twice in a row for the same writing! Darn, I'd love to read about this child's delayed speech and progress in the past year! Yes, my daughter has a nephew, who's five years old and Alex is finally speaking, but not very much. His mental development is very slow. This affects his thought patterns and ability to communicate with others.
