Default Dark sleeper

I am not the kind of person to have nightmares. Most of my dreams are pleasant and enjoyable to wake up to. Since I have moved, I wake up in the night feeling like someone is strangling me and trying to kill me. Is this a normal part of moving (across the street)?

I moved underneath someone. The upstairs tenant's apartment spans over two apartments below. The tenant is very quiet in the day but I often hear footsteps and furniture moving around at night. She may have a rocking chair or a workout machine along with two cats that patter around when she is not home. My dog doesn't seem to like her much, and since moving Ive needed pain killers to sleep due to minor injury. I no longer need pain killers for my injury. I am woken up this way. Is this really happening? I get to sleep a few hours later than before. I adhere to strict quiet hours but am no longer going to sleep at 8 or 9. I always double lock my door and screen door and do not feel comfortable putting my bed close to the large windows on the bottom floor. Does this happen to anyone else? What can I do about it?

Hey @ann bog I am not trying to be rude or assume anything but are you in the menopausal age bracket. I just started about 2 years ago and the waking up issues are driving me insane.

I’m in Peri - but she may be closer to meno-

Probably, due to her napping when she first gets home from work, she moves around in the night - waking me up with low sounding but consistent banging/knocking sounds.

I keep my TV or radio on when we are both home because I choose to surround myself with positive reinforcement- I get lonely- and feel kinda creeped out when the apartment gets too quiet. I’ve been wearing baby ear-muffs to block out sound when I sleep and maybe I’m imagining this but - I keep getting the feeling like I’m being told to kill myself - and I need to “work the night shift”. My dog and I are in very good health. We both take nutrition al supplements and eat a consistent healthy diet, but due to my PTSD I do not go out at night and go to sleep as early as possible. Seriously, I feel like my dreams are being invaded in a Freddy Cruger sense - but am too afraid to watch the movie to understand how to battle this type of imagined evil.

It sounds like I am talking about every upstairs neighbor ever but no - I believe she practices a demonic cognition/possession exercise…not in an artistic way or to raise awareness. I don't take to this offense personally because outside of this type of practice she seems like a normal person. She is very level-headed, she seems patient, listens and adjusts well. I am not sure I will ever be able to associate with someone who uses this type of practice to their benefit. Part of me believes it is better not to talk about it - out of sight, out of mind. She is not working for my attention, and I cannot give that to her. I am very upset because when I let my guard down, it does feel like she is putting her hands on me, literally when I walk outside her air conditioner drips down over my door. I have to believe she holds a similar offense towards the landlord. Why do we push people to feel so trapped to behave this way? Is her work not fulfilling enough for her?? What will she do if given the opportunity to retire early. I can't even think about becoming healthy enough to return to work and bring this type of evil with me. I am truly sorry for bringing this type of baggage with me. In one sense, my offenses are and have always been harmless,. Should I be accountable for someone above my level of understanding. Ive been told I don't understand the evils of the world and that this is the world we will in. I can't find a compromise with myself. I can accept this in others but not myself. I believe I would rather put a steak through my own heart than the alternative.

I think she is willing to take measures to make that a reality. I believe she is having a few personal issues that ate similar to my own and is looking to confer with someone, but I have extreme difficulty communicating with her. I am woken up in the middle of the night to consistent and repetitive banging sounds, (like rocking a baby but more extreme) and every time I set my radio/music and bath ready, she stomps over to her restroom (above mine) and won't leave. It's like she has a lounging couch up there. I have changed my schedule many times to try to work around her work schedule, but nothing works. Please give me ideas to get her off my back. I feel very threatened by her and I am not in a position to move out - this apartment is 2minutes from my work and to where my aging parents live, and the only apartments in this neighborhood. I can't afford to rent a townhouse or condo. I am in an unusually situation - and I refuse to explain myself to such barbarism - barbaric way of demanding - honestly if there was a healthy way to oblige her, I would. is there a standard way to flip her off safely?

This reads like a case of real estate mobbing, you could hire someone with the right skill base to gather evidence of covert harassment attempts, or write a legal letter asking for an acknowledgment then a halting of the troublesome behavior, or be subjected to further actions.

Or if the Occult aspects you are detecting are genuine, run as fast as you can, as sometimes **** can happen and it's not worth all the weird **** they produce covertly in order for you to seem ill or an asshole.
