Using Lightroom between computers with external drive

I've been traveling for the past six months using my girlfriend's MacBook for post-processing duties. Everything is saved onto my external hard drive.

Now that I'm home, I'm back to using my laptop and I can't seem to get my computer to recognize or locate the LR files on the hard drive. How do I go about opening and editing the files on my new laptop without losing my previous edits?

I'm sure this question has been answered previously but I can't find the correct search terms to find the questions that I'm asking. Thanks for the help!

*Edit*

Is it possible that the catalog that I've been using on the Mac is saved only to the Mac, and not to my hard drive? I actually think that might be the case now. Would still appreciate any insight!
