Still confused.... bleh
Feeling so bleh today. Can't tell if I'm depressed, sick, or both! And then, on top of it, this email thing which scares me because it's getting me so upset. I hate it when you just don't know what to do.

For example, Tig suggested mailing Yahoo... but since the problem is my email, and I can't send or receive email (and snailmail's too slow), that option was out. And there is NO customer service number for Yahoo. So, I talked to my 4th and 5th different people at SBC/Yahoo/Prodigy today. It's the Prodigy/SBC service I was cancelling, but it also ended up cancelling my email address - which, although it ends in "prodigy", I thought had been absorbed into Yahoo back when Yahoo acquired Prodigy. Lost, yet? And since Yahoo is a free mail service, I didn't think I still needed to keep paying for my internet service through SBC (which I haven't used in a year) to keep my email addy. On top of that... I'd paid extra to Yahoo for an email plus account.

I was literally crying tonight on the phone... that's what I feel bad about. I hope I really am sick, and that's why I was so "fragile", because that's just goddamn embarassing at my age. But I was so frustrated, and didn't even know the right words to ask the questions, and the whole explanation was just so confusing - so they took pity on me and said they'd re-install my account, and that I should talk to sales next time about how to keep my email addy (or if it's even possible) before cancelling.

Still, that was an hour ago, and I don't see my email working, so... damn.

I'm going to bed!!!

Is Yahoo an ISP? Here I just think of it as a search engine, I didn't even realize they were service providers. Can you not just dump the whole Yahoo thing and subscribe to a local ISP? Then you can have 24/7 support and set it up from scratch.
Sorry you are feeling so crummy, I know how frustrating tech crap is, and when you feel shitty too, it doesn't help. I just want to scream "Just come over and fix it, OKAY?!!"

Awwww honey, everyone has bad days, where the tiniest of things get them down, and feeling lost isn't such a tiny thing!

How about setting up a hotmail account in the meantime so you have some sort of email addy. You could also use it to harass the hell out of Yahoo!
