Hi everyone thanks for the responses.
The neighbors have improved most of the time. Holiday was more then usual which made things harder.
It's not stress because I can play my music loud and no problem as long as No Bass. It's the thump thump.
Not of course that I play my music loud now that I live in an apartment.
Used to live in a house before this move.
I believe it's the cold mainly that sets it off.
Last night was warmer and I wasn't set off by the cars starting up this morning.
I would love to move somewhere that didn't get below 40 ever.
Prefer 70-90 but would gladly take no lower than 40.
Tonight we have a freeze warning.
Not looking forward.
The one area of daily stress is sadly what gives me the most joy also - my birds.
House can wait when in a lot of pain but birds still need care and Cleaning.
Even eating can wait when can barely think or move but birds still need me.
I used to manage with lots of layers but 3-4 yrs ago nothing stopped the cold from getting through.
Layers do help inside, thank you for the reminder.
Started having bad numbness in arms and right leg that now also effects left.
Falls got scary (and painful of course). Balance and dizziness got much worse esp with last 2 severe falls.
Getting in and out of shower difficult.
Tub became too hazardous.
Stress does make everything worse and just overwhelming.
I used to have groceries delivered by store where I used to live.
Here no stores deliver.
Amazon and Walmart had problems with items stale and sour even in winter and about
Plus I can't have packages placed on the ground. But not all delivery people willing to follow sign in Red asking to place on stand.
My protein drinks and things like juice r very difficult for me to manage on my own. It's a struggle to lift them. Numbness causes weakness. The more I use arms or legs the weaker they get. Some days i Can lift a bottle of juice some days I can't.
Stress is a part of basic daily activity.
