I have not slept in weeks, I feel like a walking zombie and everything on my body hurts so bad. I have downstairs neighbors that are up all hours of the night yelling, screaming, stomping, slamming doors, and now knocking on walls. I cant take it any more I have put in several complaints called the cops when they are actually fighting and throwing eachother around and I feel like Im at a dead end, The guy has a shot gun that he has previously pulled out on another residant of this building and yes the cops where here (a ton) and he is still here? HOW? At 9 I have the kids calm down and if they are still up (this has made my daughter scared to go to sleep and when she wants to go to bed they wake her up all night to) we do quiet things like watch a movie or read. I have put a fan in our room for white noise music in Andreas, (no fan in a 3 year olds room) and even tried a tv for her so she would think that the cartoons are being silly. My poor daughter. and me... My body is catching up to having no sleep and now I am feeling so much pain that I had to have my cousin pick up my son this morning from his crib because when I tried I almost dropped him back in. uuuuuuuuuuug I cant take sleeping pills cause I wont get up when I need to or if the kids have a bad dream or just need me, ive tried ear plugs but the silence just scares me more than thier stupid fighting. I live above them and feel like i live with them...... grrrrrr

I really wish we could move, its the money issue. and our family and friends dont have extra room for 3-4 people for night stays. once again last night I was awoken by crashing and i thought i was going to have a heart attack as I have severe anxiety and ptsd. I called the office when I woke up and warned them that if they didnt do anything about the downstairs neighbors that I would go to the company who owns the property and file complaints with the city. We live in an apartment for goodness sakes. During the day they can be as loud as they want I really dont care but If i have the respect (even for the ones who dont give it back) to keep the kids quiet after 9-10. Then they should do the same. To make this worse but kind of better We smelled pot while we were walking up last night so this time I have something that I can really complain about as I dont want the crap around my kids or myself. we shall see what happens

I don't know what your current situation is, but you need to MOVE, especially because this is affecting so bad that you can't even pick up your own kid sometimes. Best of luck! I know exactly how having noisy neighbors while tending to a newborn feels like!!!

Honey i think a move is on the cards, it is hard enough having kids who wake at all hours, not getting any time to yours self and feeling like you do with out putting up with psycho neighbours. I know it probably sounds easier said then done but do you have any one you can crash with for a night or two every few weeks with your kids so you can get some catch up sleep or just a good nights sleep and a break from the crazy?
