Considering DLA theres an alternative, work, i've got my neighbour in social housing pumping out the music, i'd need to sleep by now if i was working, the housing rules are no noise that can be heard outside your flat between 11 and 7 but on drugs i need more sleep and i'm at the mercy of neighbours who don't even keep to that, said neighbours been highly antisocial pass the benefit tests and are not persecuted by the benefit system

i have been there in your situation. i ended up very ill and tried to commit suicide.
it took a long time but i eventually got a transfer. i was made to feel that i was the one at fault when it came to complaining to the council. however, i kept up my fight at the cost of my health.
i got no sleep and my whole sleep routine is up the spout.
anyway my mental health as well as my physical health was used in my favour to get a transfer. now i have a lovely house with very quiet neighbours and i love where i live now.
you have my deepest sympathy.
you need to start pushing for the housing people to take note of your situation.
if you were fit to work - because of this housing problem you would probably end up unfit to work.
what have you been doing to try and get help?

I don't see any point complain ing, neighbours like that, i'll just get a long lecture on how they're vulnerable themselves.

If i take it up with say mind, it'll probably turn out he's got mental health proiblems himself and they'll refuse to do anything, as the saying goes how did he get in?

Social housing in London is much of a muchness, i moved out of my last area due to harrassment, the social worker at the time said they hadn't any decent housing

JUst hope i'm not forced into work or getting up early, in my time i've had worse neighbours

Theres a 6yr waiting list for housing in brent last i heard

Instead of going through the housing office try going via environmental health as a noise pollution complaint. You have to keep diaries and it does help if more than one person complains but noise pollution is often easier to deal with than a neighbour problem.

The least of my concerns is my noisy neighbour, just heard my black neighbour shouting at my neighbour who's off her drugs "I'm sick and tired of your ranting" then thedy had a shouting match then she came down and started banging on my door and shouting

We have been lovers, it's difficult, i find her in that state intimidating, if it comes to a fight she has been physically agressive, even if i was to win, the police would go into nutter attacks defenceless women mode

Thought of phoining the emergency social services no on my care plan, but they'll just ignore it, if social services are only capable of nothing, sack the lot of them and let them do n othing on the dole

I think one of the most upsetting aspects of getting to know people on here is the sense of abandonment that people feel when they're ill or they're not coping or things go wrong. I feel that intensely myself when I'm ill. I can't believe how lucky I am with my support team. Two guys this week ordering me to cut back and slow down and not to brood on something that's been happening. But the sheer desperation of feeling impotent when under stress or ill or just having a bad day is tangible at times. At one point I would have seen this admission as a sign of weakness. If I am then weak, thank you for helping me get there. :hug:

i know about impotence, i can't help the women upstairs, she's got to be left to the authoritys call it crisis, it's all crisis intervention, selfishly i hope the fallout for me isn't too bad

I know how she feels, i could come off drugs and maybe i'd suceeed, cheers etc or maybe i'd go into crisis, more likely and if i did go into crisis that'd reset all the care registers and in effect get the benefit lot off my back

At least you're in a position to know you can't help. I get scared that I'm going to be told I've got to return to work when I know I wouldn't last a week out before I crashed. The system doesn't encourage honesty does it?
