Hello everyone. I just joined because I'm having some issues


Hello everyone. I just joined because I'm having some issues with a bizarre neighbor who lives upstairs from me. She's causing me so much stress I'm looking for another apartment that I can afford, and that's not easy to do these days. And I'm constantly having thoughts of suicide, even though I don't think I'll do that.

For over 7 months now, she's been following me around my apartment. How she hears my footsteps from up there will forever be a mystery to me. I have a chronic odor condition that prevents me from being around other people for more than a few minutes. So I'm home most of the time. That problem alone is enough!

This woman is 20-something and she's a caregiver for an elderly woman who lives there. And she seems to be bored and lonely and mentally ill. I say that because she doesn't seem to have anything else to do but to follow me all day. If I go into my bathroom and take a two-hour bath, she's in her bathroom the whole time until I leave mine. If I go into my kitchen, she's right there with me; I can hear her Frankenstein footsteps above me all day.

The only break I can get is when she has to take the old lady somewhere or when I, myself, need to leave for a while. Whenever I do go out, I dread having to come back to my own home.

I know the obvious solution is to ignore her. But if you've ever been in a situation like this you know how hard that can be.

There's nothing the landlady can do about it, or anybody else. It's not like she's breaking any laws, even though she's stalking me in my own home. Even if I get out of bed at 4:00 in the morning, she's right there following me to my bathroom. This goes on all day. As I'm writing this post she's right above me, waiting for me to get out of my seat.

I just needed to tell somebody about this nightmare who doesn't know me. I told one sister and one friend as well as the landlady. I don't think they're taking me too seriously. I think on the surface it doesn't sound like much of a problem, but trust me, to be followed around your own home all day is mentally taxing! I don't know how much more I can take of this sick, twisted person before I finally have a nervous breakdown.

That must be nerve wrecking. It is almost like no privacy. I remember growing up, my mother and I seemed to be on the same pee schedule. I never could figure that out. I don't think it was intentional. Being a caregiver to your neighbor, maybe one day she will get a new assignment elsewhere.
