And I'm supposed to be the crazy one

I've been living in this apartment (that used to be my dad's) for a little over a year now, and during that time the lady living next to me has gone from mildly annoying to straight-up bat-shit insane.

It started out with her having screaming arguments every now and then. Which was alright, everyone fights now and then. This lasted for a couple of months.

Then came the music. At first, only during the day. She would play Prince and other things I'm not familiar with loudly enough that it could be heard everywhere in my apartment and in the hallway. Then she started playing it at night as well. Great.

Lately, she's been combining the two, at all times of the day and night, and at an even higher volume. I can hear everything even when I'm wearing earplugs. I'm also fairly certain she's now shouting at herself. I've never seen or heard anyone else interacting with her. I can't quite make out what's she's screaming. I'm fairly certain it's French.

Knocking on the wall doesn't help. Shouting back doesn't help. I'm thinking about leaving her a note or something, asking her to keep it down, but my French isn't good enough. Also, I'm a little afraid of her. People who have screaming arguments with themselves make me feel a little uncomfortable.

Does anyone have any advice for me?

Try the note-thing. If that doesn't work, perhaps you could try finding out who owns the apartment she lives in (assuming she rents it from someone) and write a letter of complaint to them? Alternatively you could try contacting someone who deals with noise-polluting neighbours, it comes under Environmental Health here, I'm not too sure what they'd be called in Belgium though. :-/

I'll go with the note. The Boy speaks French, so he can write one. I hope it helps. *huggles back*
