Hope this makes sense and someone can help me, ready to take off the needles and search for a new pattern.

Welcome! Questions get more attention when placed in the How-to section, but I'll get this one here. What you do with the double yo depends on what it's purpose is in the pattern. If you have a large eyelet in the pattern, the WS row will usually tell you to drop one of the yo's, and you'd purl into the one that's left.

If you have to work both of the yo's, then your best bet is to purl one and knit one on the WS row.
