I was rudly interrupted for what my computer did to me.

Please let me explain. I was well underway in describing how my chronic pain has interfered with my life. While I was on a very lengthy discussion, I accidentally hit a key and everything I wrote was gone. Talking about being POed, I was devastated as I spent almost two hours writing it. I tried just about everything to get it back but no way did it come back. Everything now is blank and I would have to start all over again. I am frustrated to say the least. I should have written it down on paper, upload it here and at least it will not disappear on me. It is getting rather late now so I will have to go at it again tomorrow. I am very sorry about that. I also have much more to read in this post. What I have seen so far is that everybody here is hurting in some way. As far as myself is concerned, I do fit here and I have my story to tell as well as responding to others.


  • If I'm writing something long I regularly 'copy' & 'paste' to the notebook (or anywhere really). Mostly with short things like chats on here I just hit 'copy' before I save the message just incase it vanishes on me...then I can just paste it back again.

    Does that make sense?

    It's such a pain in the bum when that happens. Ugh!!!!
    Osteoarthritis & DDD.
  • I write stream of concience and have lost many...many posts due to some wrong button push.
    Sometimes i weite in word or wordperfect and copy/paste if i feel its specially important. but writing and losing is frustrating.

    Every time I try to respond to a post, I click save, and it will say "unable to post"??? Thinking maybe mine have been too lengthy, I'm attempting to send this short one, given your topic, it seemed the appropriate place. I too have my story to tell about living with Chronic Pain, if only I can get my comments to post. Very frustrating!!
