My noisy neighbors are driving me mad

I have finally going mad thanks to the ridiculous noise pollution caused by my selfish and inconsiderate neighbors.

I cannot sleep, it is difficult even to eat and I am losing an unhealthy amount of weight.

When I visited my neighbors for a polite discussion of the issue, they threatened me.

I am a very serious victim of noise pollution. Over the past year, I have been sonically tortured by my upstairs neighbors. The father stomps his feet with every step, and often plays table tennis and football inside the house. The son pushes and pulls the metal door at every opportunity, jumping around and screaming all the way through the hallways day and night.

I could not stand it any longer, so I decided to go upstairs and speak with the family about the problem I was having. But it only went downhill from there.

The neighbor, who I heard is the boss of a car shop, later even came down to my apartment and threatened me.

"I will make you go crazy," he told me.

I was fearful and powerless. I tried to report the matter to the local police, but have yet to receive any reply.

I tried everything to block out the noise, but I still cannot stand it. For months, my mind has been thrown into disarray. I began to lose weight and lose sleep. I am worried about my and my son's health, and I do not know who I can count on right now.

What should I do? Should I share my story on social media and ask the community for help? Or should I stay silent and wait for authorities to step in?
