I'm in the midst of fighting my way out of some pretty hefty technical problems so I don't have much of anything for you today.
I've spent the last 24 hours, or so, trying to repair and rebuild from a hacker.
That's right – I was hacked.
Really, WHO DOES THAT?!
Assholes with a lot of time on their hands, that's who.
I apologize to the many of you who got spammy emails from me (but not-really-me) yesterday.
My thanks to the many of you who took the time to inform me something was wrong. I'm sorry if I didn't get back to each of you individually. I was probably too busy pulling my hair out. Also, I heard from a zillion of you and it's difficult to respond to a zillion people in a timely manner!
To make matters worse, the hard drive on our home PC (not the MacBook I use) crashed yesterday also.
To make matters even worse, I am dealing with the biggest billing nightmare in medical history and the whole situation escalated to the point of exploding my head into four hundred zillion pieces yesterday.
Don't you love when a company is completely incompetent, bills you incorrectly for months, fails to fix the problem when you make repeated phone calls requesting they do (despite saying the situation will be remedied "immediately") … and then reports YOU to a collection agency?
Because, isn't that exactly what you need to have happen on a day when you're fighting a technological nightmare?
On a positive note, after hours of work and very little sleep – my technological life is now back in order.
On a negative note, if you've emailed me in the last few weeks I most likely "lost" your email correspondence in the hacker nightmare. SO – if you are waiting for a reply from me (and many of you probably are because I've been behind on email replies with the going out of town, graduation thing, going on) then please feel free to re-email me.
On another negative note, today I have to re-tackle the incompetent medical billing company. I'm sure that will be a very unpleasant experience.
I think I need a few hours at the beach to de-stress. Or an hour in my pool swimming. Or a cocktail. Or ….?
Come to think of it – let's go with that theme -
What do you do to de-stess after a hellish day or two like I've had?
