When Your Neighbors Give You A Headache, Literally

When Your Neighbors Give You A Headache, Literally

http://migraine.com/blog/neighbors-give-headache-literally/

I experienced a lot of this when I lived in an apartment. I had neighbors above me who were constantly noisy as all hell, the only time they were quiet was when they weren’t home. The TV was always blaring, or video games, or music, and it was way too much for me. I can’t tell you how many times I had to ring their doorbell and tell them to take it down 20 notches. They’d do it in the moment, but a few days later they’d be back at it. It’s one of the reasons I don’t think I could ever share walls with people again. I have noisy neighbors here too, but I have no qualms whatsoever about telling them to knock it off, especially when I’m sick.

If You Live In …

If You Live In The Dark…

“If you live in the dark a long time and the sun comes out, you do not cross into it whistling. There’s an initial uprush of relief at first, then-for me, anyway- a profound dislocation. My old assumptions about how the world works are buried, yet my new ones aren’t yet operational. There’s been a death of sorts, but without a few days in hell, no resurrection is possible.” ―Mary Karr
