Ethereum Wallet stuck pending transaction

NOOB here trying to get a handle on things.

I've been using the Ethereum Wallet from Ethereum.org for about a year. I'm on ver 0.10.0. Around December 2017 - January 2018 I started to have very strange issues. I could receive Eth but I could not always send Eth. It would take 2 or 3 attempts. By that I mean I would configure to send some Eth and I could see the transaction in my wallet. I could go out to Etherscan and see it "pending". then it would disappear from my wallet with no record of the transaction and same with Etherscan. I would recreate the send action and sometimes the second or third attempt would finally go. I would see the transaction in my wallet and on Etherscan.

Then sometime February-March the same issue was happening but I would no longer see the completed transaction in my wallet. Etherscan showed the transaction. My wallet was debited the correct amount but no local transaction record. More and more I would have try sending Ether multi
