Worse than I imagined

This device has been awful today. I am sure iwill make adjustments but right now this is horrendous. I cannot imagine it being worse unless it actually caused some sort of physical pain. It is incredibly annoying. I have an array of electrodes on my head that is powered by a battery pack which is about a 1 ft square package. It weighs about 10 lbs. And has a life of about 3 hrs. I have 3 backup batteries which sit on a charger that weighs about 20 lbs. I can plug into a standard 3 prong outlet but I can't get far from the outlet. The array makes my head warm and I have to instantly lay attention for low battery alerts or disconnection alerts.
As is plainly obvious I am less than thrilled about this. I have no idea how I'll deal with this. Irate the thought of this and n it may not even work. If it does work. I'll have to have it going 80% of the time.
Mean time the coordination in my left hand is not getting better, I'm having trouble seeing as far as I once did and I'm not sleeping well.
2012 started off on an amazing note. My friends sending ne to the patriots game was awesome. As high as I was from that I'm feeling really low right now. I have the terrible feeling of having limited time left and not wanting to do anything all at once because I have this device now. It makes for high anxiety.
Seriously questioning whether this was worth it or not. If it doesn't help than it is an incredible burden that has wasted valuable time. Just feeling very confused.
