    Hugs from me too!

    Just take it one day at a time. And see if you can get some support (counseling) to help you through what is by any standard a rough time. I second (or third) the wine suggestion, and also pass on my personal stress-reliever: trashy celebrity magazines. Nothing like junk food for the brain to distract you.

    I'm hoping you'll feel better soon. Oh, and another technique I've found helpful (though this is not what you asked for) is to write down three things I'm grateful for every day.

    More hugs.

    *hugs*

    I'll second the "grateful" approach. It really helped me get through some rough times.

    And sometimes you just have to let it out. I've been known to have a Chevy Chase moment or two (re: after he finds out his Christmas bonus was replaced by a Jelly of the Month club membership) when it seems like one more thing might make me go batsh*t insane.

    Be patient with yourself. Realize how ridiculous things can be sometimes. It's OKAY to ask for help and it's OKAY to feel like you do.



    With much love...

    Aww... here's your hug.

    Oh, and I have a bunch of clippers large and small that I'm not using now.

    Want to borrow 'em? PM me and I'll send them.

    More hugs from the wet and windy PNW - We all need a hug now and again.
    Putting wet things in rice to dry them out really does work.

    Big hugs for you... I know how awful it is when everything seems to happen at the same time, and one little thing is the last straw... hoping for a better year ahead for you.

    That only works when you have Marty Moose punch glasses....

    Big big hugs! Sometimes everything just seems to go...sideways. I'm about 3 years in to a big sideways slip in my life too, and each thing alone wouldn't send you over, but all of them together...pretty crushing.

    Big big big hugs!

    Yes, try the rice thing. Take them apart as much as you can do and then stick them in a sealed rice bag. Once you think they are dry, leave them a few more days just to be sure.

    I've recovered a TV remote control that fell in a glass of wine and a laptop and multiple keyboards that had water spilled on them. I didn't use even rice. I just put them in front of a fan or just dried what I could and waited.

    A clipper repair person might be able to get in there and lube them up, too, if they feel like they are sticking. There's a guy that works with one of our farm supply places in Bham that sharpens blades and does minor work on clippers. Call around once they are dried out if they still don't work. You might get lucky.

    Good luck!
