I have my iPad back.


But I have had a very frustrating time trying to set it up again – mainly because my depression and citalopram befogged brain had completely forgotten my apple ID for the iPad – so it looked for a while as if all the data I had stored on the iCloud was lost for good.  Thankfully N retains his sharp intelligence and good memory, and was able to tell me my ID – at which point I remembered the password too.  Now all I have to do is to work out how to get the information back onto the iPad – but for the moment, I am working on the basis that it will push it back if the iPad is plugged in and locked, which it is now – fingers crossed.

Worst case, I will have to go to the Apple store, and throw myself on the mercy of one of the staff, to show me how to retrieve the information from the cloud.

It is still sunny here, but my mood has been lowered a bit by the problems with my memory – it is so frustrating to feel so dim.  But, I am reducing the dose of the citalopram, so in time, I should lose the cognitive impairment from that – then all I will have to contend with is the congitive impairment from the depression, and that that comes from old age – and I can’t really change that last one, though I do do intellectual puzzles each day, to try to maintain and retain what brain cells I still have.

Nick was a bit frustrated at my forgetting the ID and password – but he didn’t get cross, which I would have deserved.  He is probably more patient with me than I deserve.
