Home situation has settled down a great deal. I am not around there a lot and that is good. I tend to be there late at night and while sleeping. Otherwise I tend to be somewhere else. I like being somewhere else.
Most of the time I am there it is tolerable and I avoid interactions. I do manage by having my fan on all the time and listening to music on my cd player with headphones. That tends to cover up most of the noise.
While sleeping the noise is often disturbing me and waking me up, usually many times during one sleep cycle. I have my share of sleep issues, including chronic and life-long insomnia, and having anything else that causes me more issues is not something I care to endure long-term.
It is odd to me that I have endured that in the last three places where I have shared living space. I had it before due to living in a mobile home park and the invasion of my space, peace, and quiet from dysfunctional neighbors. Now I have it in the next room, not just outside my front door.
I have to admit noise is a big issue for me. It is a huge trigger. I don’t think others understand or care. I don’t talk about that with others because I don’t want them to have the extra ammunition. I don’t want them to know it bothers me more than the average person would be bothered.
I did find out about Section 42 Housing, which is a low income housing government subsidy based on a percentage of income. I am getting some stuff mailed to me and will be able to work on that some more next week. It seems like I might be able to find a small apartment. That would be great to have more space between me and the next person.
