I feel like I could have written the first 20 min of this. I can't say that I've beaten this or got it all figured out - but if anything in this story sounds familiar to you, get in touch with somebody you trust, or you can message me; just don't tough it out alone.

DIY Surface Pro 2 skin. The Skinomi kit was $20, and all I wanted was to cover the back plate, so I grabbed a 5ft roll of carbon-fiber-look 3d vinyl for $5 on ebay and trimmed it myself.
