I turned to this forum as I've known it to be a good source of advice.
Regarding my use of the word "Mental", it's context was not used as a derogatory term. I am well aware of mental health issues as I am a volunteer at a mental health organisation once a week so did not say this to offend. The simple fact is that since I've been at the residence the noise has always been there. Maybe I was more preoccupied in those early days, maybe the said person was not having so many episodes(he is screaming as I type this), but is it too much to ask to be able to have the tv turned off and be able to settle down and read a book? I have to go to my bathroom for this. This is clearly not fair & my quality of life has deteriorated over the past few years. Southwark noise suggested he may also not be taking his medicine, there are treatments available to control this kind of behavior. In the nicest possible way I would like to be rid of him, but hopes that he gets the help he needs. I just don't see why I should bear the burden of his suffering also. I am living in a southwark council owned property. Any further advice greatly appreciated...
