I'm just a damn paranoid schizophrenic

And I’m dealing with the insanity of all my neighbors. The situation is unbearable.

Sorry your dealing with your neighbours. Apart from the odd chat with the lovely lady upstairs - i dont see or speak to the others for months. They probably think im bloody crazy anyway, when im laughing like a lunatic at night with some dumb YT Video.

Sorry you are having so much trouble with your neighbors for real. Every person deserves to be comfortable in their own home. I would have bought some bed bugs off eBay—because you can buy anything on there—and released them into their house. Does that seem wrong?

As far as your illness goes, don’t say those things about yourself. You are a good person. Everyone here is in similar situations in terms of mental illness. We have that here, and it’s a challenge not to label ourselves.

I’m up at six am with my son, talking about a video game…too early for this…:sleeping:

You should give some space to mind so mind can think and generate ideas and let you do respectful actions
Forgive
Forgiveness is powerful energy let you find relief from everything around
Respect and let them respect you
Neighbors are people like you you should treat them well and you ll find their treatment to you
What you give in life you ll receive in return that s rule

I am sorry to hear that @77nick77

Have you talked to your doctor about this @77nick77?

hey @77nick77 I haven’t been on the forum long so I don’t know your history but from what I see, neighbours seems to be a repeat, horrid trigger for you.

You deserve better.

I think you should move.

Do your have a Housing Worker or Support Officer who can help you apply for alternative housing? I used to be a Housing Support Worker and the waiting lists were huge so I know that where I live, the sooner you apply, the sooner you may be able to move somewhere else peaceful.

I love living on my own but, in close quarters, one neighbour drives me nuts as she leaves her 2 cats out all night & they kill wildlife (which is illegal, you’re supposed to have your cats confined inside by sun-down) and are always on the look-out to beat the living ■■■■ out of my cat which means vet, psychotic symptoms triggered & vet bills $$.

You can fight for better accommodation. It may be a long wait but at least start the process of acquiring better public housing by lodging an application with a housing worker. In my experience, neighbours can be heaven or hell… the noise thru open windows, the looks as your trying to get to your private apartment, the noise, the noise, the noise, the noise thru the walls - it’s hell to a sz & not right.

You gotta take action & fight. Don’t know where you live but in my part of the world it’s a long fight. Start as soon as you’re able to.

Yeah, thanks, good post. I’ve fought all I can. The thing about these neighbors is that I can understand mean because I grew up with mean people. But these people are just rotten. Low and disturbed, mean and rotten. They just don’t care. I know it ain’t the Taliban killing people or homeless people getting harassed; it’s just a small scale situation but it’s the effen nerve of these people.
Excuse me while I vent.

I told the counselor here that I’ve walked in my apartment a hundred times after work or coming from running errands telling myself I won’t react and I won’t be aggressive and I will just ignore them and a hundred times they either play their little games with the laughter and little noises that they think are cute or funny or just flat out intimidation or mind games and it drives me nuts.

One of the most frustrating things is when I get lulled into a sense of false security if I’m on my couch with my laptop and it seems like everything’s OK but then I pause and I realize that for the past half hour the crazy ladies have been doing their trip on me. At this point I don’t really know if I am delusional and imagining it or if my feelings of being threatened are real and if they are, I don’t know how they’re doing it. I can’t describe it. I don’t know if the sh*t they put out is magic or getting into my head or some kind of mental health trick that can’t be explained or some new way of bugging someone that they invented. I’m at wits end. And no, I don’t deserve this.

My neighbours are just so weird, too. Some of them go out at once at 2am making really loud noises, some parents somehow thought it was a good idea to let their kids out at 2am, and etc. I’m sorry that you’re going through this also.
