Mini melt down Sunday.
Technology is supposed to help our lives not cause chaos. My email started sending out spam at 6:00am and 3 more times throughout the day. I have 100's of contacts in my email. My boss called my home to tell me he was getting emails on "how to make money" from me. I told him I liked the way I make money now....it's just spam. Well the phone calls started and texts and emails and even one knock on the door. By 7:00pm I could not stop crying. I could not get my email to disable, could not get my password to change and could not get my husband out of the neighbors house to help me. That led to crying about other things then my husband in desperation said "please tell me who I need to beat up or shoot and it's done." He was so sincere that I just snapped right out of it and started laughing at him. I don't know what got into me. I just became so frustrated.
I don't quite feel like myself this morning. I'm hungover with emotions and my eyelids are swollen. I have 36 more unopened emails from overnight, of people telling me that my computer was hacked. I'm not going to open them and that's that.
My feelings this morning are, embarrassment for causing people such aggravation, guilt from upsetting my husband, bewilderment for getting so upset and confusion from my own lack of control. I don't know where to put all that. God's hands I reckon.
I know when I get to work there will be a steady stream of people who will come by my desk to be helpful and ask me did I know my computer got hacked. I need to come up with one standard "I'm sorry" and not let it take me back to the crazies again.
