I'm being kept awake by a new neighbor, and it's not fair. My fibromyalgia is worse, EVERYTHING is worse when I don't sleep. Even the a/c clicking on at night will jolt me awake and send me into a D attack. Night attacks are the worst.
Enter my new neighbor. I've lived here for 10 years and been through some loud ones. This one moved in a month ago and I've said hi to her on the stairs, but really don't know her.
Now the shrieks of a newborn baby pierce my ears. Day. And. Night.
I've moved my bed away from the wall. I can't sleep with anything touching my head (ear plugs, head phones, etc.). And I have no recourse except to meet with management or confront my new neighbors with small talk and try not to vent directly to this stranger.
I'm just so drained. By lack of sleep and from the D. Oh and here's some irony... I'm childless by choice. Great, right? Ah, yes. Gotta love that screaming irony. That screaming, shrieking, jolting, sleep-depriving irony.
My passive-aggressive response so far is to blast my TV louder than usual, to let everybody know that next to me is no good place for an infant to sleep. My BF gives me +1 for inventiveness and -3 for karma... I accept that.
Sympathize? I empathize. the mother is woken to change a poopy diaper, and I'm awoken to poo my sheets.
