Well, with very little info to go on, my thoughts were that you're over thinking this exterior paint job. Not so obviously, you have serious health issues which require special care in doing the painting. In no way, shape, or form was I making any sort of personal judgement. Trust me, I've been in your shoes. Stage 4 lung cancer for my wife of 25 years. She died last year, so, trust me, I know where you're at on this.
