I'd really like to catch a break

I just got woken up at 3am by my bladder and my dog. Headed to the bathroom only to discover a massive puddle that I, of course, slipped and fell in. Landed on my already injured shoulder. The water is leaking. Turned off the water and water heater, used all my towels to mop up the puddle and determined that they will need to remove some wall or go under the house in order to even find out what is wrong. Meanwhile, numb useless arm, so not getting more sleep, can't flush, can't wash my hands, can't even mop up the sweat from the hot flash that I've been getting lately, mostly thanks to a broken thyroid. I'm already in so much debt that three years of not buying one unnecessary to life item might, might, pay it off. My parents are going to be so mad even though I didn't do anything to make this happen. I'm not liking being me right now. I can't even buy clothes that fit.

Aww Tak. I’m sorry to hear this. I’d hope your parents won’t be mad at you, moreso the situation at hand. It’s super annoying to have house things go wrong when your down and out for the count. I’ve been there multiple times.

But girl, you are more than ready for things to turn around. Try and find a silver lining in this and you will be fine. Sending you love and thoughts. If you need to vent feel free to shoot me a pm.

My dad came and looked at it. He ended up calling a plumber. He's just not as young as he used to be and movement is harder. My mom didn't come, so I didn't get yelled at. My dad thinks that the cold water pipe had been weakened by an obvious previous repair and just finally busted. Hopefully we'll get a plumber out today. If not, I'll be toting some buckets of water over from my neighbor to flush toilets. Luckily my daughter has a trundle bed for sleepovers, so I'll sleep in there tonight either way. The smell will go away when everything is dry again. Luckily my Wesley woke me up. We think that the floors are ok. My dad had to cut the wall open to access everything, but that's not bad fix.

Logically my mom knows this wasn't my fault, but it'll be "just more money they have to spend on me". Oh, I also called my doctor to see if I could get in any sooner.

Good news is that my dad taught me well. Thanks to Wesley waking me up, I was able to control the problem before it did major damage. Now I just need to patch the wall and pay $300 that I don't have. Could have been so much worse. Makes the pain of falling a little more bearable knowing that I did the right thing and saved the floors. :)

I know the old saying "It never rains but it pours" certainly can ring true. It seems like disasters just pike on some days till you think you literally can't take anymore. I'm sorry these things keep happening to you Tak. And what a bummer it was water, that's always a pain.

Too bad you don't live closer. I'm actually a really good plumber, one of the perks of being a farm girl. You end up gaining a lot of useful info. Even if my knee wou;dn't let me bend and do the work, we could have made Action Hank do it! I've taught him all the plumbing knowledge I have. He's super handy.

What a good thing Wesley decided it was tinkle time, he probably saved you a huge clean up and water bill. YAYS PUPPIES!

Wesley didn't even need to go. He just woke me to look at the water. :ponylove: That's why he's my special boy.
