    Feeling Very Fragile

    I don't really know why I am feeling this way. But since Halloween I was counting down the weeks, and then the days until Christmas break. By the time we were down to 1 week I was barely holding on by a thread. At the end of that week, on Friday night, I slept 14 hours. Counting weekends, I...

    Anxiety around noise

    Hello I've just signed up to this forum as I'm wondering whether there's anyone else out there who has a similar anxiety issue to me. My anxiety is noise. Particularly neighbour noise. My wife and I bought our first house about 6 months and initially it was fine. On a nice Saturday early on...

    My neighbor is monitoring me

    So this could be purely paranoia or my gut instinct is correct. I think my neighbors might be making noise nuisance sheets about me and they have been doing it for some time. I'm not a noisy person I don't play music and if I do it be through headphones and I never watch TV as I'm mostly on...

    Noisy Neighbours

    Ok I don't want to sound like I am moaning but this is getting on my nerves. I have lived in my house for almost 10 years, I had neighbours before these ones moved in which is almost 2 years, the ones before these were horrible neighbours but they were not as bad as these ones. There is the...

    The last time I tried (with approval of my psychiatrist) to reduce my medication, the first symptom I experienced was what I called almost-voices. This was basically a sensation in my hearing like tinnitus, a kind of white noise, except that it went up and down and would have pauses and things...

    Ghosthunting and how it relates to hearing voices

    A while back while I was ghosthunting I noticed that I could hear my own thoughts in the white noise and had to hold them in I also noticed something talking back to me when I voluntarily did this. I ve made an art out of controlling and creating voices heard in white noise. When I listen to...

    Am I hearing voices?

    So when I was a kid, I remember that sometimes I'd be curled up in bed and just have a sense of dread and felt as if I was being shouted at. I'm pretty sure it was my own voice saying "i should just kill myself, everyone would have been better off if you never exsisted in the first place, no one...

    schizophrenia cured

    In using a space heater as a source of sound, as it has both the heater and the fan element to use as a sort of white noise, I can create an array of varying voices and sounds coming out of the fan. In doing this I found that you can only listen for one type of sound to manipulate at at time. By...

    Old Lady Neighbor

    I could use some advice. I live in elderly/disabled housing due to ptsd and mdd. My old lady neighbor seems a bully. Before she left for the summer she told me "no smoking" (I don't smoke} and seems to assume I am a drug addict or mentally retarded due to being younger and/or disabled. She...

The woman next door is in her eighties and at times is LOUD. I do NOT know how to talk to her about this. I can't. I have tried to get up...

    Noisy Neighbors

The noise keeps me awake sometimes until 3:00AM. He is a computer programmer so he works from home and rarely leaves the house. The individual...
