Well this day sucks

So, when you call a psychiatrist’s office and say that your physician wants you to see a psychiatrist, what they assume is that you mean you are supposed to get counseling.  Conflating the two is apparently a pretty common mistake.  But rather than ask you if that’s what you mean, they just schedule you with a social worker.

So I got to drop a $50 copay to spend an hour with a very nice social worker as we looked up the numbers for actual psychiatrists.  Turns out it will take at least a few months to get an appointment.

Then I come home and hop on my laptop.  Everything’s going fine until a command box pops up.  Looks like jibberish to me, so I close it.  Immediately it’s like my video card vanished.  Graphics went to shit.

So I restarted.  No fix.  It’s like my graphics card isn’t there.  I went into my device manager and it’s not even listed there.

And then I get this box.

No clue what it means.  I see “Nvidia” which is certainly the brand name of my graphics card.

Fuck this day.

Ok, laptop fixed.

I’m gonna just relax the rest o’ the day and take care of myself. See you all tomorrow. :)
