Who washes your clothes?

Since 2013, I never wash my clothes anymore. That because I was told not to do heavy works anymore due to my condition. So, I have my mother wash my clothes for me. And now, since she is sick also, who will wash my clothes? So, I did today. I only wash those house clothes, only 10 pieces of them. And now, I am facing the repercussions. I have a very sore right hand where my AV fistula is located. For sure the boyfriend will be mad at me.

because you need both hands to wash properly, right? i guess you could have used a palo-palo. i hope it heals before your next session. the only solutions i can think of is to buy a washing machine, or to find a labandera (laundrywoman) who will come in to wash by hand, or to go to a self-service laundromat.

We do have a washing machine, but since it's only 10 pieces of house clothes I do hand wash.

I am doing all the washing works at home. But I do machine wash so there is no hard work for my job. Sorry to know about your problem. if you are not well and advised not to do the work then find out some other options. Health is more important.

You should have waited a few days to have more things to wash and use the washing machine.

I only take my chances. I should not do that because I was not allowed to do heavy things such as washing clothes. As I need to preserve my AV fistula in my arm.

I hope the AV fistula gets cured soon. We use the washing machines most of the times and there is an option for handwash too

i think there are laundry shops available there, right? also, don't use your hand with the AV fistula because it may cause some complications once it gets dislodged.

Yes we have but it will take a long walk for me to go there, I don't have someone to do that for me since my Brothers are busy with their lives.

It is a hard experience to share that as I left my house 7 years ago still then I had had my own clothes by myself ... On that particular juncture I feel mother's blankness here as she used to wash all my clothes when I was at home... Thanx for the post... Nice question frnd
