Problems with my neighbours
I live with my mother, grandma and my stephdad in a small house. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am 17 and almost 18, but I have been traumatized because of my neighbours. It is going on almost my whole life and I just never really talked about it besides my own family or friends. I never even talked detailed about it, so that's why I started searching on the internet for a website to clear my mind.
My neighbours don't like us. We don't know why. Maybe it's because they wanted to live here, but we were here first.
They treathen us by telling our time will come, they call the police for bad "smell" because we have dogs. while they have 2 too. they try to make up different things everytime to just.. hurt us or something. They PUNCH with a hammer or whatever on the wall, when our dog makes a sound once or twice, they do the same if our chairs make a sound. They even once called the police on new years eve! while people were playing with fireworks just because our dogs were barking.
Yesterday (19-05-2017) A man came up the door and asked for my mother, so I told her. He wanted to "help us" clear things up with our neighbours. He was someone from television so my mother closed the door again, but he pushed against it. Maybe she could have answered questions, I don't know, but everyone would have been in shock because someone randomly stands there with camera and all? right? they have no clue on how it feels to be "prisoned" and "scared" of your neighbours. this is going on for so long and he thinks he can just.. change it? If we needed help, we would have searched for it ourself.
Today my neighbour treathened my mother by saying our time will come, there will be more. I don't know what to even expect anymore from them. This is going too far while we just try to ignore it, they continue and continue and continue like they have nothing else to do. We have won from them many times, the police is on our side so they wont come here anymore if the neighbours call them, there have been some people here for 3 months to see if it "smells" that bad cus of our animals, they didnt smell a thing. and yet they need to continue and getting cameras and tv shows in it?? this is just too much.
My neighboour punched my mother in the face, but we couldnt takle action cus no one was there besides my family and I was at work, he treathens us, they punch on the wall to tell us that we need to keep the dogs quiet. what are we? do they seriously think we cant think on our own??
because we won the fight already a couple times, something (dunno whats it called) wanted to offer them a house so they could move, and what did they do?? they declined! they just WANT to continue on this.
I really don't know what to do, my grandma who is 8 can't just suddently move and I am sure she doesn't even want to. That's why I am stuck here. If I ask my mother if I could go to a therapist, I am sure she wouldn't like that and I am sure that if I would go, I would not even know how to even start.
I got bullied at school, I have this thing going on with my neighbours, I am just getting crazy.
Sometimes I really just don't want to be here anymore, especially when those things are going on.
there is so much more I can talk about, but this is all I can say for now.

Wow that does suck, but life is like that sometimes. I feel you have to work through this, its an important life event and there will be many many more. Just know you will get through this in time you will look back on this like it didn't happen. Always try to take the higher road, and know that there is something wrong with them, perhaps there is something bad that happened to them or they are going through something you know nothing about. Try to befriend them, study them, look for something nice you could do to turn the table. Let them know you are trying to calm your dogs. Use your cell phone to record any possible violence, that is a line not to be crossed and the law should be involved. Have faith and don't be scared, be a warrior and know you will find a solution. Don't worry, have fun, and try not to worry what others think.
This sounds like serious Harrassment to point of antisocial behaviour involving physical assault.
How come your parents haven't asked the Police to prosecute or sought the advice of a solicitor by now?
