Well I say it, here I am again, sitting awake in bed, after being totally stressed out by my constant noise sensivity, if only if only the neighbours knew my stress, anxiety and nervousness I suffer every time I hear any noises coming from their house, live in a semi built 1980s so thin walls of course, as soon as I seem to feel better about the situation, something else pops up to stress me out, they decided to hoover their laminate flooring in the bedroom at 10.15pm, and banging around when most people are chilling for the evening, I feel like it's controlling me, I feel like they are controlling me x

Hi Welcome here that's a shame. I am the same I live in an apartment. The walls are thin and no privacy I hear noise from the hall. Some people are ignorant or just don't care. I like your cute avatar, I hope things get better for you.🌈

This must be terrible for you. My sister has it with eating. She has trouble with the sounds of us chewing.

This might be a stupid suggestion. But noise canceling headphones or ear protectors?

How do you cope with it? Must be worse in an flat noise from all around, do you think people do it on purpose, I have it in my head that they do sometimes, think I get bit paranoid at times reg this issue x

I have no choice I can't afford to move. I do get angry though, a neighbor across the hall bangs her door and makes other noise. I think people should be considerate of their neighbors but some are not.

Well had a bad eve, reg noise, no sleep at all last night manic ep, I flipped and contacted the landlord via fb messenger early morning like 5am to tell them about the banging laminate flooring etc, always seem to be doing DIY esp in the evening, being noise sensitive, caused me terrible anxiety depression, and flipped me into an episode bp2, ended up sending a stack of messages prob looking like some nutter, I noticed she had read them and saw she was online, so called her via messenger, she said they are just doing jobs and there's nothing she could do started shaking went in full melt down as finding it hard to cope, lying on bed relaxing music on crying, as had to realise I've basically got to lump it, I'm trying hard to accept that it's not personal them banging etc, the landlord told me that they are just living their lives and are thoughtful, but doesn't feel like that to me, feels like they are intruding and trying to drive me insane. Bye
