Re-wiring a lamp with three bulb sockets and a dimmer


This lamp had a dimmer which was underneath the base, the knob of the dimmer was threaded came thru a hole in that base.  The wires have become so mixed up that I can’t figure out how to replace all those wires together so that the dimmer works with all three lights simultaneously.  I’m a woman in my 80’s and have replaced most of my wall light switches with dimmers but this lamp has me stumped.  I’m afraid to wire it wrong and make a mess of everything.

I’ve tried to include the pictures but that also seems to be a problem.  They are in my pictures but not as a file.

Will you help me with a diagram?
