I was playing around with my Raspberry pi to see what I could make it into, and xbmc had a run through, I started installing wheezy (a Debian distro for the raspberry) and decided to fumble around with the overscan settings as my TV ate a little on the sides of the image.
I unplug the machine and starts configuring on my laptop, reinsert the SD card, replug the power.
A black screen… Then followed closely by “No signal”. ‘What is this? I didn’t tell you to stop working. Signal is there!’ *points to the little computer angrily in my own lonesome*
Hm, it must be a configuration problem. The following happened
After all that…I sigh and think “It can’t be that easy…”. After this I stand up and replug the HDMI cable at the back of my TV.
Conclusion? Sometimes we miss the obvious…
A little furry friend that has been my companion and friend for the past 17.5 years is now no longer with me. A rather inquisitive little being, and sometimes even very vocal about my choice in music or films. He didn’t demand much, just some water and food, not to mention the occasional treat.
As some of my followers are aware I’m one of many that is diagnosed and undergoing treatment for depression; luckily it’s one of the less severe forms but there has been bad days with the thoughts of suicide and other self destructive behaviour.
What I have learned during my three year journey and meeting quite a few doctors since I was diagnosed can be summarised up in the following points:
This text post of mine could easily be looked upon as a rant and dismissed as such but what I’m getting at here, the core of the problem, is that many patients out there won’t get the help nor the respect they deserve as human beings. Equality no matter gender, sexuality etc. are very important issues, but I think this is a place that needs attention as well.
Now, it would be rather presumptious of me to state that this happens everywhere in this world, but I do think there are people who might feel the same.
Tumblr - The source of procrastination? Sure, it might be, but at the same time it has helped me to find awesome friends and fresh views on topics I had not previously given much thought.
I’ve been living with clinical depression since 2009 and to be honest I’ve had trouble finding reasons to keep going, to stand up after getting knocked down. Thoughts of suicide has always been around like vultures waiting for chance.
