Yesterday morning, my dad found a water leak in the kitchen that had flooded the counter. So he put a bucket there and left it at that, thinking that it was a damaged pipe, so it'd get fixed by the plumber who's coming on Friday. Last night as my boyfriend was leaving, Dad showed me what it actually was. It's litterally water pouring from the ceiling from the appt above us. Flashback 6 years in 2000, when the people above moved in, they did some "improvement" work and managed to do 7 (yes, seven) different water damages on us. They tried saying that it was untrue, that we were jealous that they're rich because he was redoing his appt and we were not (our home was in perfect condition, painting and all, so we didn't need to), threatened to have someone beat me up to try scare my parents... etc. That sort of held off on the repairs until the walls started cracking, peeling and the water ran out, evidently from THEM since water runs DOWN in most places. We've been having court procedures ever since. Judgement was due in May this year. :evil: In the end, we managed to prove it was through neglect but now this! Our appt is wrecked and with this going on, we won't be able to fix it for another few months while experts investigate for the court. My mother died in the meantime so I'm left with the taxes on the inheritance (mainly on the value of the appt), so I can't afford to have everything fixed, neither can I afford to have the whole ceiling ripped out while that b*stard upstairs lives on his happy little life having wrecked our home. I have to live in a freaking dump with peeling, cracked walls under permanent repairs while they're parading around like they own the building. The neighbor has lied, threatened and otherwise done his best to make our lives hell because he wants to buy us out for cheap. I'm just so angry, upset... put any negative emotion in there. I'm going to have to call the lawyer as soon as his office opens but I just needed to vent. On top of that, I lost my favourite bracelet. It was a present and it's nowhere to be found in the house, I'm afraid it may have fallen off one day. I went to bed really upset and depressed, feeling like it'd be better if I didn't wake up this morning. :cry: Anyways, sorry for the long rant but I had to let it out. I'm just so down right now, I'm not seeing solutions or ways out.
