So the plunger thing inside out tub broke that holds the water in then you take a bath. It went way down the pipe and it's four feet down right above the ceiling. Even the plunger couldn't get it out. It will take about two-three hours for it to drain out after showering or bathing. This is what happens when you live in old homes where lot of things are original. Even our pipes are still original but parts of them are brand new because we had replaced them when we moved in.
But this is all giving me anxiety and I am not sure how much longer ai can live with it because I am short tempered again and screaming at everyone because of the stress and all this fear I have all because of a damn bath tub. I would fix it if I had a way. My dad keeps saying he will do it but never does and I am starting to think about ripping the boards from the ceiling in the garage where the bathroom is above it but the only problem is I have no idea how to do house maintenance and I have no idea how to call someone for help. I can only rely on family for this and everyone keeps saying they will do it but it never happens so every day I get more and more anxious and that is bad because then it's not fair to my children and then I am making their lives and my husband's lives a living hell because of my anxiety and it makes me shut down.
I have no idea how most people can live this way and not get effected this way like I do. But I am really scared I fear I am going to go crazy literally like I have before in the past. That is what fear and stress does to me even with a change in my life or when something is too inconvenient for me, I am limited to how much I can handle it before I start to explode and go crazy and then I am acting like a manic like I am Bipolar. One minute I will be fine and the next minute I will be exploding and angry all of a sudden when I have so much anxiety from something and it's as if I have no control over it. I feel all this pressure and tense and anything else will make me explode because I can't handle it. It could be from my son asking me for something or my son throwing something, you know being a normal five year old, or my husband asking for something I there I am already screaming because I feel a lot of tension inside me all because of a damn bath tub that takes over two hours to drain out. it's as if only way to keep me calm and sane is if everything foes my way and everything is going smoothly so that means if something goes wrong, you better fix it ASAP before I make everyone's lives a living hell who live with me. Then I always feel bad. It feels like I am having tantrums except I can't even stop them. Then when something that was causing it is fixed, I am all of a sudden better and I stop so it's as if I threw a tantrum until I get what I want and this sucks. My mom calls them meltdowns.
So any advice what I can do about this busted bath tub?
