September 16th - Bad Day for Me

Last night the turbines were very very loud and I was kept awake until about 1pm with them. I had a disrupted sleep and so did my children who kept waking as well and wanting to come into my bed to sleep. The youngest asked if someone was playing video games outside - he said he could hear helicoptors....In the night, I had terrible aches and pains in my legs and hips...this happened about a week ago and I thought maybe it was just an "achy" day....now I am wondering if it has to do with the turbines...my youngest cried a lot this morning when he woke up and acted as if he was extremely overtired, which makes sense as he was up a lot last night....my oldest complained of a back ache again....We are going ahead with some renovations to try to create a barrier for the sound and vibration in our home - if it works, it will be good news for everyone! I know that most people are not looking to leave their homes and would be very happy with a solution to the problem....We are giving it a try...wish us luck!!
Today was a bad day for me, I felt tired and weak all day. I had "the headache" again very badly today and I even slept for a bit with my children this afternoon....it makes it difficult to get work and household chores completed, but I am grateful that I have the flexibility to work around the bad days....

I hope you have good luck with any renovations - so far I haven't read of any that were totally satisfactory. As you get into it, please keep us updated.

In the meantime, you and your family have my sympathies.

Thank you Floyd for that great advice. I am sorry to say that aspirin and other over the counter medications do not really work on these headaches. I am lucky, because they pass. For some sufferers, they have to leave their homes before they can find relief. I truly hope you never have to experience this type of invasion into your home. Nik
