Happy New Year!  :)

I can't seem to handle not being in control...
Not being in control is one of the few things I really hate in this world because the fear of it has, at times, affected my life very negatively (and still does, tbh).

What can I do?
ATTENTION! Probably really poor advice incoming...  :-\

I think that when things get out of your control, you can (1) accept that you are not in control, (2) try to steer yourself away from the effects of the things that are out of your control, and(/or?) (3) not think about the things that are out of your control.

So what does that mean? Well, your fridge not working and the repairman's schedule are out of your control. That is just how it is, and you can't really do anything about it. What you can do is to try to re-schedule and change your own plans to best accommodate the uncertain things (for example: making your plans for evenings when the repairman is unlikely to work, limit your need for a fridge by eating outside or staying at your friend's place if possible, etc.): Find ways to limit the negative effects.

As for the not thinking about it part... well, that's not always easy. But doing something you really like usually helps at least a bit. For me, nowadays, that would be either exercising or listening to music. For you? Reading, maybe? Or going for a walk/jog? And if breathing exercises help with the stress, then definitely do them too.

Heart beating quickly, feeling on the cusp of crying, a rage boiling inside.
This isn't normal, is it?
Well, based solely on my personal experience, I'd say that seems pretty normal.

But then again... what is normal anyway?  ::) ;)

What I'm trying to say is...
Spoiler for Hiden:
Hugs!  :-*

Happy and peaceful Yuletide, everyone!  :)

...I'm looking at you ArcaneArtsVelho...
Oi! I can't manage to read more than one book a year.  ;) ;D

I haven't got a book to read for this year yet, so I may end up breaking my streak.  :-[

Happy birthday, m3mnoch!  :)

Get well soon, Peat.

And Jmack, that Merry Minuet... So funny, but sadly quite true in its essence.  :-\

Happy birthday, Idlewilder.  :)

Sorry for your loss, Inky.  :(

I'm going to visit my parents and friends on Saturday, for a week, so at the very least I'll be able to sleep more and eat 'bad' things ;)
Have a nice trip!  :)

... have cold feet like most women...
I didn't know that was a thing.
My feet are almost always cold. Does this mean that... I'm part woman?  :o

Lots of hugs for @ScarletBea:)

Sorry to hear that, TGC.  :(
