omg the woman upstairs!!

8y, 8m agoPosted 8 years, 8 months ago
Shes doing my absolute head in!! She BLASTS her music throughout the day, and she stomps her feet all day/night. She purposely drops things, then picks them up and drops them again, sometimes she can do this for hours on end. She screams in the middle of the night and she throws her furnature about.

She has that depression that has her highs and then her lows.
A few weeks ago she was admitted into a mental hospital but now shes back again. I'm sorry but how can they let this woman out, she is clearly unstable . Whenever I pass her on the street she smirks at me as if she knows shes winding me up.

She was going mental a few mins ago so i threw a shoe up at the roof now she seems to be screaming at me and going at it more worse. I feel like going up stairs and throwing her out the window!!!!

I forgot to mention I've been woken up many times at 5am by her screaming and throwing things. The night she got admitted to hospital I woken up with her throwing things at the ambulance men, she was screaming at them she woke up the whole neighbour hood. When she was gone it was the best few weeks of my life, no joke. This woman is a nightmare. I've lived here for about 4 years and about the past 2 years shes been like this, but recently its been getting alot worse

i do feel sorry for you but she sounds very ill - why dont you move or is that not possible
#3
difficult but sometimes theres very little you can do we had a neighbour who was very similiar put the speaker to the ceiling one time and blasted music though

you mean bipolar used to be known as manic depression :)

She must have community psychatric nurses attending her get a hold of them and explain your situation see if anything can be done. I'm sure when she's smiling at you she isn't smirking at you she's unwell although I know that dosen't help you. Have a talk to the nurses see if they can do something :)

the nurses i doubt will be able to control her noise etc......apart from sedation i feel sorry for both parties. although annoying you really do have to sympathise with the poor woman as well she must really be suffering.

You can phone the council and ask them to log your complaint, then you will need to write down every time it happens a description of what is happening and the time/date. The police can't help unless they pose a danger. I had a problem with neighbours like this and unfortunately I ended up moving. I just had a baby and next door had 10-12 young persons from overseas living in a two bedroom house. Not pleasant so I know exactly how frustrating it is.

Is the accomodation rented?

thats nasty lets hope you don't ever get a mental illness:whistling:


Thats what everyone is thinking, whats different from being locked in a padded room for most of the day and have doctors stare at you through 2 inches of perspex lol?

She is with the council I think. Does this mean I can report her?
She only gets about 3 hours of sleep, how can this woman survive? :?

I know but she may need admitted to get her medication reevaluated they might not know what is going on :)

I think if I were to start writing down the noise then I would run out of paper very quickly. She has no carpets so this probably doesn't help matters. I don't think she even has any nurses coming in to see her. I've never seen any. The thing is, the hospital she went to has a bad reputation for just leaving the pacients so I'd imagine they just patted her on the back and send her home saying shes fine when she obviously is not

They had to sedate her the night she got taken away because she was attacking the Police and the Ambulance men (The police had to be there for some reason)

Speak to the housing although someone with a mental illness can't be evicted they can get in touch with the right services that maybe able to help :-D

No one should have to put up with this. Whether she is mental or not is irrelevant. get in touch with your local council and see what options are available to you to resolve this. If you get no joy off your council, contact your local MP.
I lived next to someone who was very unstable after a drink ... playing tom jones at full pelt early hours of the morning, convinced people were spying on her on trying to take her son away. The number of times she shouted 'I know where all you paedophiles are...' at the top of her voice out of the window at 3 am onwards was unreal.
Your does sound worse than that and I can imagine your at your wits end.
Good look, I hope you get some resolution with it soon.

I think it's really easy to say be sympathetic but when you have to live with it day in day out - your patience can wear rather thin!

If she is a council tenant I would imagine you are more likely to have success at sorting out the problem as opposed to her owning it. If the noise goes on for long periods, describe the type of noise, the time it starts and the time it finishes ie the periods rather than distinct events.

You need to contact the council first. The only problem long term is that even if the woman is moved, she may cause problems wherever she goes. It would be much better if the CPN's (community psychiatric nurses) were made aware that there is a problem. She may get treatment then and the symptoms alleviated. Coincidently I live next door now to a schizophrenic who likes to shout, swear and make unusual noises regularly. Luckily there is a walk way between us so not too much bother!
#21
I don't want to get her evicted or anything like that, if anything I just want her to be cared after because she obviously needs alot of help. I'm going to phone the council next week as its e easter this weekend so I think they will be closed
#22
This is the thing about living in a flat. You always get a neighbour you don't like. In the previous flat I was in, there were needles everywhere, and it stank of pee. My mum would've gotten a house but we needed to move asap because my gran was ill and we needed somewhere very close to her, and this was the only available option at the time. I work at home so I have to deal with this 24/7 and its actually driving me slowly insane
#23
I think you might have luck contacting environmental health department (about the noise) and the social services department (about her mental health problems). They will both be made aware of the problems then. If no one has reported these problems are happening regularly then it is likely they will think she is ok.

Is that what you get when you've met a manc? :whistling:
#26
I think the only time people were aware of this was the night she was taken away by the ambulance because everyone heard her. These flats are built so weirdly that only myself can hear them as her living room is above my bedroom. and her kitchen is above my mums bedroom.

So I will contact, the Council and the enviromental health department?
#27
Ps it is not a quick process - it can take months to put together a complaint. They then come to the house a measure the volume of noise with detectors. The first thing they will do is write her a letter making her aware a complaint has been made. They wait a while and you have to keep bugging them until they feel that the problem is not resolved.

Oh no, another few months yet :thinking:

The environmental health dep is part of the council. Phone the council, ask for environmental health and then phone social services. I haven't spoken to social services about this type of thing but I would imagine they are obligated to at least note it.

Yes I know - very very frustrating. And my neighbours landlord actually phoned the police about me because I phoned her to try and sort it out (although I was upset obviously). I didn't harass her at all - she had a duty to sort it out - or so I thought. I was wrong. My neighbours didn't have mental health problems and were making my life hell - yet the police responded to a complaint about me!

when she screams you scream louder,, show her whos the dominant male

best thing to do, phone social services, they should be able to help you, and her, as it is clear she is very unstable.

At ngith time and weekends, phone your GP out of hours and ask to be put through to the mental health team, in wirral we have a team called the crisis team, they can sort out these problems, to start with they are trained to deal with it.

It could be that her medication needs reassessing, after a while anti psycotics don't work. I worked with mental health patients, best job i ever had. it's hard to deal with, but you have to remember that this isn't who the person really is, their brain is sending all kinds of signals, telling them to do things that aren't normal for them.

enviromental health will be useless in these circumstances. social services will be your best bet.

It's common nowadays my last neighbours were smackheads who held all night parties involving sex drugs and booze made my life miserable, I normally get some form of noisy neighbours.

You get used to it after a while but it makes me moody
