House shopping! Your heart is invested into it. Your mind is running ramped with thinking about so many factors – both present and those that will affect you in the future. This is where I am at. I am torn between everything and anything. One thing that I do like about having a blog is that you can write down your thoughts and try to make sense of something.
My heart wrenching dilemma is in regards to a house. I know it may be a weird thing to get so torn about but this is how I am feeling at this time.
We found a house. A beautiful house. The house of our dreams. It has everything we want and more. Inside it is gorgeous and we see ourselves living in there and raising our family in the future. It is ideal in every single aspect …. except one. Even though it is only one single thing that bothers us it is, nonetheless, a very large concern – power lines! Power lines in the back of the house! Power lines in clear, visible view when in the backyard. Power lines that carry not only resale concern down the road, an eye soar to look at and most importantly, health concerns.
The power lines are roughly 100 meters from the house. They aren’t in our backyard, and there is a large enough gap before they start, but nonetheless, they are close enough to worry.
I read up on EMF (ElectroMagnetic Field) concerns, the fact that there are studies (even though inconclusive) that say the magnetic field it generates causes cancer and leukemia in children. It is a real fear and yet the more I research it, the more confused I get. Even though today there is no clear and solid proof of anything, how can anyone really know!??!!
I am worried to miss out of the perfect house and yet I am worried to take it because of health concerns. I know people will say that we will find another house we love just as much if not more – but I know myself and I know that this is it for me. I will love another house because I will have to – not because I will want to.
There is no real point to the post lol I just wanted to get some feelings out and perhaps someone may read this and provide some real insight to my situation. I will not gamble with our health, but if I am perfectly honest, I do wonder how much of this is hype and set out there by social and media fear and perception and how much of it is real actual, proven fact!
I keep on going back and forth, and back and forth …. and even now back and forth … HELP!!!!
Here you can see the long row that runs all the way down a few blocks in the area.
This is the one that is by the house in question. It is more off to the side in real life but this is the only picture I have.
