I was having trouble with my laptop for about a week and finally got the problem solved on Friday evening. Prior to 6 weeks ago, I would have said my laptop died when describing to someone what was happening. These days, I can’t use the words death, dying, die, died or any of the other d words. Whenever one of those words enter my head, I immediately think of Alexander and it brings that awful day back to my mind. I know I have no choice but I don’t want to associate those words my baby.
I never realized before 6 weeks ago, how final and permanent they sound. I will no longer be a casual user.
