So, I get home and am trying to muck around on the computer and **BAM** I can't get online! NOTHING will get me ON! RE-INSTALLED the dam wireless antenna - TWICE then I can't figure out how to get ... ANY way, after getting a new - powered HUB so I can REACH the dam thing and not get on the freaking FLOOR I'm finally back on line! This is NOT a good time for me to have my BLOOD SUGAR in the freaking toilet!! Now, IF it will just STAY on LINE!!!!

I was having a hard time getting on-line earlier too. I had to completely shut everything off, unplug it all, wait about a minute, and then restart it all. Thankfully it worked, but I have had times when I have had to reset my router too.

Oh, sounds like you're having a rotten day. Our internet has been in the crapper all week, and now our old TV is acting up, and they're going to change the station lineup on us, and we are going to have to figure out what all the new channels are. These crappy days are the crappiest. I hope your days get better.

Pong was still on the counter - no where NEAR the broken glass - he looked down like "how did THAT happen?"

I hope Pong wasn't hurt and that you got all the shards so nobody else gets hurt.

unfortunately, if we didn't have wireless, we'd have to re-wire the house and THAT ain't happening

I too would get mad if I am in your situation. Getting online is already a habit and it's really very hard to break plus I do earn from various activities online and even missing a day can be very frustrating. I am with you on this. :)

it just seems that it happens on bad days too - I guess if my blood sugar wasn't so bad it wouldn't have blown up so much

Hey friend, keep cool, watch your temper, it's not good for your health... When we lost power for 8 hours, I can't do a thing, so I took a break from the Lot and sleep. No power, no internet, no nothing, no earnings for that day. So cool down as it really happens to all of us, though it comes in all different ways.

well, if I didn't have power I would at least KNOW that NOBODY was online, but when it was otherwise working fine, and I can't get on it, it is VERY frustrating!

I hadn't quite reached the shakes yet - but I was rapidly getting there. Well, the weekend cometh and maybe I can get some extra sleep - might just have to get the worst cat pests out of the bedroom.

I hate it when that happens! Some days are harder than others and when your blood sugar is going wacky, then even more problems happen since that is when our minds are not as clear as they could be. That has been my experience with my blood sugar troubles (which I hate BTW). And computers were invented to make us crazy every now and again. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL I hope your computer has been tamed and is now under your total control!

You need to have on hand some quick protein/energy bars so if you have another situation like this, you can grab your bar so you can think properly. When your blood sugar is funky, it plays up your ability to think. Messing with wonky computer bits requires an ability to think.

Are there not other 'packaged' foods you can eat, such as vegetables (carrots) or fruits with skins like apples? When I have to have a fasting test for checking my levels (I'm on my medication) I tote an apple with me so I don't 'crash'.

but those protein bars aren't either not safe for me or way off the diet! I didn't really lose 2 weeks ago, and I want to be DOWN this time!

I relate, Grrrrrrrr!!!! Today has been ‘one of those days’ for me. It started with a couple of broken plates; they just fell out of my hand! Then after I cleaned up the cat’s vomit which I accidentally walked on it was time to get on line. No problem there until I decided to run a scan and clean my computer out. As I opened my cleaner program I found the link to this cool software that advises you of updates and I decided to install it and that is when I went to hell and back. The thing advised me that I needed to update 49 different programs and gave me the links to the newer versions. Well to cut a long story short, it messed everything up and uninstalled some of my stuff only to reinstall the wrong version which I then could not get rid of! I had to so a system restore and after about two hours I managed to put everything back the way it was. While all this is going on my husband decided to take a broken blind to get fixed. He returned half an hour later with it all repaired and as he put it back up again he broke it again! All I can say is Grrrrrrr!!! What my husband said I won’t repeat or I’ll be banned!

I had the same problem yesturday! With my router hooked up..I couldn't get online. We went as far as to uninstall IE8. I read that there are a lot of people having issues with it. I now just have 7 and things seem to be doing fine.

I hope it doesn't rub off on anybody, but I have to say that being over tired and my blood sugar crashing, didn't help any. I was having more problems to day, but its a lot easier to deal with now that I've taken a little nap

only time I went to the hospital with my blood sugar - i had been in a car wreck - and it was at 66, generally I just need to eat something - I'm more apt to have low blood sugar than high

I am so glad to hear that, you have to be careful, try not to get upset,you don't want to get sick and end up in the hospital, blood sugar is so scary, so you make sure you take good care of yourself o.k glad to have come across one of your post.

Sounds like a good time to worry about your blood pressure. I hate when things drive you crazy and believe me, lately, a lot of things drive me crazy! Trying to figure out how I'm paying my bills when my employer doesn't know when he'll pay me would be one of them.

our computer used to have this problem all the time one day it was working fine next day totally off and it might stay that way for 1-3 days. then my dad called the company one day after it was offline for the whole week practically and yelled at some people and it got a little better. then one day we went tot he store and bought a new one and it works almost all the time. we might still have to reset it a couple times but it works. when this happens remember to get ourself calm.
