Home making me sick

PatriciaPatricia Member Posts: 12 Connected
Hi everyone, I feel unheard and powerless! I don't have anyone to vouch for me and I can't do it myself. The housing quality is poor being a conversion flat. Since the noise from the neighbours boiler is not a problem for healthy people, I am being ignored! I am being forced to move having got chronic migraine from the noise and vibration. But all that is ignored and they are moving me based on need to move nearer my son. Which affects my points and ignores the real reason. Is there no justice in the world?

    HI,

    I'm a little confused here so please can you confirm that you're saying you don't want to move? Or you want to move but not closer to your son?

    I fear moving because if my problem is being ignored then I could easily have the same problem again! Plus the spacial orientation part of my brain is not working. My son wants to move so not a long term solution. Stuck between a rock and a hard place .

    Personally, i think that you could have the same problem as you have now if you move to another flat and i'm speaking from experience here with living in a flat myself for a couple of years. My flat was also converted from a house and the noise coming from the man upstairs was horrible and i could hear everything, even talking and his snoring, which used to drive me insane as it used to keep me awake.

    I moved to a house and now i don't hear anything from either of my neighbours. I think it will totally depend on where you're moving to.

    Working on my breathing and moving my bedroom to the front in the hope of less affect on me. I emailed my housing manager details of hyperacusis. Waiting for response. Thank you so much for asking x
