I came home from vacation, which was not easy...more on that in another thread and I walked into a mess in my apartment. I needed to have my tub done. There was paint chipping and I was going to have to be out of my apt. for 2 days, due to the toxins of redoing a tub. I was gone for a week with vacation, so I thought this would be a great thing to have done while gone. I came home and I walked into my apt and there was dust and soot everywhere. My tables, picture frames, everything was loaded with it. A photo that was in the bathroom was ruined and there were paint chips all over. They didn't put plastic down. My bathroom floor is half gray from the paint...they didn't cover it. I went to bed and could barely sleep. I started sneezing and feeling awful. I woke up after 5 hours with my heart racing and found that I couldn't take a shower because there was no hot water coming out of my tub. They didn't turn it back on. I had to hire a cleaner to come and clean. Seriously, you should have seen my apartment. One of the workers/maintenance people came over and said, "Oh, I am not cleaning up this. This is a mess and would take forever. They would have to pay me overtime." I wrote a letter to the manager of the bldg explaining that I want to break my lease and move out this summer. I have had nothing but problems here and I can't take it anymore. Twice my heat has run at 90 degrees during the winter and it won't shut off and they will tell me to turn on the air and open windows until someone can come. One time I waited 4 days. I walked around in shorts in my apartment during 30 degree weather with 3 air conditioners running. Because I always pay my rent on time and I have lived here 8 years, they are letting me break my lease. They are also paying for the cleaner than came and any broken damaged items I have. I sent them photos. I am deducting it from my rent. Anyway, I am nervous. You know how it is to move. There is so much to do, pack up and more importantly, I need to find the RIGHT place. A place that is suitable for one with CFS. Now, that is a fear. Will I be ok? Will the new place be ok? What I want and need is too expensive and before anyone recommends I move out West and live in a tent to avoid mold...ugh. That's a whole other rant. I am not moving from where I know and feel comfortable. I need to stay put, as in around here. I just came home from a vacation that was somewhat lousy. The person I went with doesn't believe that my illness is completely legit. She believes that it is mostly anxiety. She expected me to keep up with her and she was a total bitch when I didn't. I was shocked because I have let her know for months about how I am doing. She has acted so supportive. I actually did a good job in doing a lot. I give myself an A!!! I swam, drove 5 hours to TN with her. What the hell?? I am exhausted.
