The noisy neighbour left in May 2019. The trouble is long over but I'm dealing with the after effects. Since then, I've still been dealing with face/scalp eczema, blepharitis and other delayed stress 'reactions.' I spoke up about the long term risks to my health before they happened but it fell on deaf ears. Hard to reason with people who talk in circles and can't have linear thoughts. Over a two and a half/three year period my physical and mental health dropped. I'm still trying to get back to normal. At least, what's normal for my long term condition. I tried wearing silicone earplugs at night but didn't find them comfortable. During the trouble, I listened to iphone music with noise cancelling headphones too. But then, it was hard to escape the noise all night and my body was still screaming for sleep. I've got a hormonal deficiency. It's a rare condition that affects 1 in 80,000 men and 1 in 120,000 women. While the problems were ongoing (because of my noisy neighbour and the narcissistic abuse from the local government/authority who refused to stop him) I had my hormone levels checked out. It's important to get my levels checked every year. I was worried because it's not wise to be below the normal level. Sleep deprivation can screw with hormones. The levels came back normal though. No thyroid problems either. Instead, they found that my cholesterol levels were a little high. At that time I'd already changed my diet to deal with the eczema. I was roughly two months into it at that point. My hormones were out of whack and probably still are. Anxiety is a part of my condition and it was/still is difficult to relax. I tried to go out and have fun during the trouble but it was hard. I'd be sleep deprived before I went out anywhere and sleep deprived when I came back. My body couldn't recover at all and the stress and tiredness accumulated. Now... There are times when I can't sleep or do anything for long periods etc. I can't watch intense action sequences because it kinda triggers my anxiety. For a while I also had recurring nightmares of the noisy neighbours breaking into my home. Now it's just the occasional anxiety dream and the auditory hallucination. I'm trying to build a positive daily routine. Last night, I ate some probiotic cereal that's good for the gut. If I keep doing that it'll help calm my nerves before bedtime. The trick is to replace a negative routine with a positive one. I hope your tumor is easy to fix. I sympathize with your thyroid problems because my Mum deals with that.
