went from slipped to skipped!

brand new to the forum!... 08' stock everything w/ 96K miles

I would smash the pedal to the medal on the highway (just under 80mph) and very rarely would it try to shift into 1st and over rev. (happened maybe 3 times) well it did it again except now im having problems! 2nd gear itself started to slip and now it completely skips that gear. I drop it into manual 2nd but its driving in 1st...

I know theres more parts in an automatic transmission than there are in 2 human bodies but would it be anything that can be repaired? I read on a site about a shift solenoid but I can see that part acting as protecting 2nd from getting more damaged
is it time for the dreaded rebuild? by the way, warrranty went out the door at 87K.

Not sure how an internet forum can help. You need a professional. Or a junkyard tranny you can trust to put in yourself.
