Vent as much as you can and don't hold back. It's good to get rid of all that's bothering you and let it all out.
Then you can focus and put things in perspective. You will get through this!

Re: I'm ready to tear my hair out...

OK to vent to your friendly group! Last week I hit a deer with my two year old car!!

 

Merry Christmas, Merry %$#*&@$ Christmas!!

 

But I have insurance, the car is still driveable, I was not physically hurt just badly shaken and the deer got up and ran after his lady love that I'd stopped for......if only he'd been swift because I do know enough to wait after the first deer crossing...Woman Frustrated

 

There, I feel better.  Oh and I have to wait until end of March for the repairs....lots of deer around our roads this season.

 

GoneButNotForgotten you have my very good wishes for a better and prosperous New Year!

Re: I'm ready to tear my hair out...

Am so sorry you are dealing with all this !!!

 

As for the dryer: hang clothes on plastic hangers and hang from shower curtain rod.  Use a clothesline strung in the garage, basement or an empty or rarely used room.

 

I let my laundry go in dryer for 10 minutes to get wrinkles out and then hang the clothes over a 4" PVC pipe in the back basement.  In the summer, I will do the same thing over the PVC pipe there and use plastic clip hangers for swim trunks used for jogging.

 

Since you did get a dryer, these tips may save $ on your energy bill.

 

Good Luck with your tests and try to enjoy the peace of the holidays

@GoneButNotForgotten Don't be so shard on yourself!  The older I get, the more I can appreciate something my momma taught me and always said.  Every day rhat ends in "Y" is another challenge or problem.  I hope you find a way to rise above them and can get a handle on your health for the new year.  Wishing you peace!

Re: I'm ready to tear my hair out...

Once your medical test is over, why don't you treat yourself to a pretty silky scarf or two.  A present for yourself for getting through it. 

 

If you don't want to go into a department store because of your neck, ask your husband to pick something out for you!

 

I remember my washing machine dying on me and walking into Best Buy on Christmas Eve.  Can you imagine?  But I did it.  

 

Ask your husband to string you a clothes line in your basement, if you have one or outside if you live in a warmer climate.  Till you get your dryer.  I'd hang clothes inside, if I had to.  I wouldn't let a broken dryer stop me from washing clothes.  Linens maybe, but not clothes.

 

I hope and pray your testing goes well.

@GoneButNotForgotten you've got a lot going on. I'd be overwhelmed too. Please focus on what matters (health, a good marriage....) and let the insignificant stuff go (bad haircut). You have the money for a clothes dryer so just get a basic model. If I had to air dry my clothes for a few weeks, I'd manage (rather unhappily, but I'd manage). It sounds like your son isn't much help so you won't be able to rely on him. Your husband sounds like a good guy who lacks communication skills. Appreciate that man!

Re: I'm ready to tear my hair out...

@GoneButNotForgotten   Sorry about all the issues you are facing...your son should be ashamed for not being more welcoming about the laundry....

 

I know you are ill - and this will not work for you but I'd cut my nose off to spite my face and NOT take my laundry to his house...I'd go to a laundramat and dry my clothes..and if he asked about it...I tell him you felt he was not interested in helping you out.
