Have you ever diligently written an article and saved it only to lose half of it because of a weird computer syncing glitch?
I just did.
Yesterday morning before milking and after as my husband was driving me to my psychology appointment, I wrote and diligently saved my Audience how to article.
This morning, sitting in my car, waiting for milking time to roll around, I opened my laptop. I went to the My Articles section and pulled up my draft. Read.cash flagged it with a red bar staying I had an unsaved draft. Restore? It asked. Ok. I hit restore.
I scrolled down to the bottom and saw instead of restore my entire article, the bulk of which I had written on my phone, not my laptop, only to find more than half my article missing!
I'm sure I can recreate it for the most part since I'm going to be giving the same information, but I'm also sure, though I don't remember the exact words, I was far more witty and clever than I will be today.
I'm still pretty stressed out by life.
I get stress stupid.
Mental stress combined with all the various physical conditions that cause physical stress (Diabetes, Hashimoto's Disease, IBS, Menopause) give me major brain fog.
That's one reason it's so difficult for me to write or be creative when I'm stressed.
My brain just doesn't work.
There's nothing for it but to recreate what I've lost.
Meanwhile, the doctor is ready for me, now.
