Yesterday afternoon (Tuesday September 11) we got a phone-call from the company that they would be here tomorrowmorning at 07.30h!!! Yep, at 07.30h they arrived (yawning) and this while my alarm clock went off at 05.00h because I had to take tramadol. Because they had to chop and hammer, enfin a lot of noise, Henk took me immediately downstairs... the chopping down is upstairs at the bathroom and this you hear less in the living room downstairs. Shit that you can feel so sick of waking up too early and noise!!!
And what do you think... at 12 o'clock they were gone again!!! Not that they think about me and start later so that they at least are ready at 16.00h!!! They are working here for so long know, they meanwhile know what it does to me, but no way that they bear this in mind!! Sorry but this really annoys me. I thought they had started early because they needed the whole day... so yes then it must be I thought, it's at least for 'a good cause'. Well, they have again perfectly arranged this... NOT!!!! I will surely tell them this the next time they call; they come early in the morning for just a half day of work and it burdens me the whole day, if not days!!!! Due to all this I am again out of my rhythm!!
You know what, I will call them now otherwise I will keep thinking about it. So I have called them, a phone-call of less then 5 minutes; yes, from now on they would think about it. I wonder, because I have told them this more often and still they always come early in the morning. Now the painter has to come and of course we don't know when this will be. Should this also take several weeks?
It's now Friday September 14 and I still suffer from as they came that early past Wednesday. The following has namely happened: I planned to go to sleep as soon as my carer was finished, however then my parents arrived and so I stayed awake. Not much later I completely collapsed, not surprisingly though because first of all I am completely out of my rhythm and second I were already awake for 8 hours straight ahead without having rest in between. So yes, there I went, probably around 15.30h, only nobody noticed it, at last I already lie flat in bed... my mom was in the kitchen cooking, my dad just came in after he and Henk checked our car and not much later Henk also came in. I couldn't talk anymore, couldn't move anymore and no one noticed, they thought I were asleep because my eyes were closed (which I also couldn't open anymore). As at 16.00h our insurance-men came in (appointment) they noticed that something was wrong, because I didn't say anything to him and also didn't notice him. Then Henk brought me upstairs and lay me in bed. Every hour he came to check and ask if I needed something, if I wanted to lie somewhat differently or something, but I still couldn't to anything so also not reacting to him. It took 4,5 hours before I were somewhat back (I say back, because I had a consciousness-descending, almost coma). Around 21.00h Henk brought me back downstairs for some time and we watched tv together till I had to take my med at 23.00h (see 'painkillers') and then we could finally go to bed. The next day I was of course completely exhausted and I was glad there were no workers. Because I was too exhausted for everything and still couldn't talk well, I made Henk with very much difficulty clear that he had to turn on the tv so I could listen a bit, I also couldn't keep my eyes open. So I actually have done nothing and yet not much later (I was barely awake for 3 hours) I collapsed again, again the same as yesterday and again as long. This time Henk just let me lie downstairs, at last there was no one, Henk put on my eye mask and then I waited till it was over again. Today, Friday, I am still exhausted, but luckily I can again work a bit at my laptop. I however notice that I have to be aware, because I feel it 'looking around the corner', so I will now go to bed and try to sleep somewhat. This just isn't normal, that I react like this due to past Wednesday, meanwhile already 2 days ago. You see, that's why I hope they listen to me and bear in mind that they mustn't come that early.
