Hopefully by Wednesday of this week, I will have a new water softner installed, which should take care of all of my water issues.  YAY!!!

I opine that Carolyn should investigate a home water treatment system, perhaps reverse osmosis.

Also, since I'm a bit fanatical about clean hands and nails, I scrub them daily with bleach.  Is that going to kill me?

First off I'd stop scrubbing your hands with bleach.
Not a good thing to be doing.
Frankly I'm surprised that you have any nails or skin left.

I concur.  Had one installed yesterday.  Water is much better now.

Hi Carolyn,
just a few questions now that you seem to be safe with your 'new' water and softener-system working fine:
don't you have a sort of Water Surveillance Council or similar Federal or State institution who takes care of water (and people) safety?
Is your problem common in the area where you live?
Same stinky and colouring showers for your neighbours too?
You better check again for any sleeping volcano close to your home :)
(joke) ;) ;D
Arrivederci!

Yes, water problems are quite the norm here.  There are alot of people here that have the same problems or even worse with their water.  I'm sure it's because we are on the Gulf Coast.
