I moved because the neighbors were so loud at the last place...one guy actually set up a woodworking shop in the common area beneath my bedroom with power tools. The lack of sleep and constant anxiety were wearing me down and increasing my chronic pain. Anyway, this place was supposed to be quiet. Since I'm disabled my family helped with the move and even bought me a new couch which hasn't been delivered yet. My old one was almost as old as I am. My family has problems but I love them and vice-versa. It was more quiet for 3 weeks. Then my cat, who is the only one I have in RL who is always there for me, gets freaked out and has been waking up the guy upstairs when she comes to bed in the middle of the night. It was about the same time his ex-wife came to stay. Last night he started storming around when she mewed once, and this morning he started storming around at 7:15, which is hours before we get up. I tried turning up the air filter and then tried turning on the dvd that is medieval church music meant to muffle ambient noise to help me sleep, and that didn't work. I finally got up, cursing, and that set his ex-wife off. I had no idea they'd be able to hear what I said... Anyway, my oldest RL 'friend' suggested [after I asked her to stop telling me what to do with all my medical care last year] that I 'divorce' my family. Her last suggestion was that I buy a house instead of rent a fairly low-cost apartment with my disability check, so she's obviously out of touch with how it is to be in this financial state, although she considers herself poor. She's never around except to tell people what to do. She's the same with other people, always has to be in control and gets angry if people don't, quote, 'do what tell them'. I have a great therapist and talked to her last night, but I'm can't do this much longer keep wondering if I'm dead before the damned couch is delivered if they'd refund the money. It's a stupid thing to worry about but I can't do this any more and I can't find a place that feels safe. TIA for any help.
