The past 1.5 weeks have been incredibly stressful here at the house. We've had workers doing much needed repairs on our 75+ year old stucco & sidewalks. Just getting up 4-5 hours earlier than I ususally get up is sending me through the roof, literally. I had a migraine last week, but so far nothing this week. This week I've upped my medication levels to try & deal with the noise & vibrations & confusion. I'm also using the heating pad, resting in the recliner in the evenings & not trying to do much in terms of dinner preparation beyond take outs. Thankfully, all the work is being done outside of the house. Unfortunately, it falls on my shoulders to be here during the day & I've been suffering, especially due to the electric saw & drill. Even the constant hammering & noise from the generator isn't as bad as the sympathetic vibrations I feel in my arms & legs. (Just like the reaction I get when I'm near a train.) I've been wearing old lose & soft clothes that don't grate on my skin. Alas, it looks like the project will last until the end of next week. Aside from hoping for rain, there's not much I can do except wear my dark sunglasses, ear plugs & noise reducing ear phones. Has anyone experienced flares or lingering problems from construction close by? I had a bad 2 week spell after roofers finished across the street last year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed about this experience which has really gone on too long for me!
