I'm Dutch and 38 years.
I live a few metres from a construction site that has been active since about 5 months. Up until a few days ago I was only annoyed at times. But since a few days these sounds start to influence my basic needs, like they almost melt with sounds from eating. I get a lot of support like I don't need to cook and get help with cleaning. I do have a constant lack of sleep I think because of the sounds.
Also things like doing activities and using media are difficult. I'm starting again Monday.
There's more that maybe I should keep private and I could be missing something but the sound thing definitely not.
Thank you for reading.
