I don't know how common this for everyone, but, it is PAINFUL for me to be distracted away from the train of thought, whether I'm awake or sleeping. As it is, I'm often confused about things, so I need to constantly feel like I can concentrate on the issue at hand. I can make myself sick just trying to think straight. I consider it to be a huge nuisance, and I'm ready to attack whatever or whomever is causing the problem. Currently, I'm living in an apartment building where the neighbor above me appears to have a heavy foot that paces in the middle of the night for hours at a time. Thus, I cannot sleep. And when I say heavy, I mean the ceiling sounds like it could cave in at any moment. In truth, I don't blame my neighbor but my landlord because I feel like this cannot be considered a livable situation. I shouldn't have to adjust to this kind of noise should I?And my neighbor should have the right to pace in his/her apartment at any hour of the day, correct?
