Venting here big time! I look out my window to see my next door neighbor throwing gasoline over two spots very close to my property. Lighting them on fire, to burn ants!! This with their unkept yard, weeds, trees, inches from a car, and again close to my house! Had quite the fire in both places going too! No hose or water around, just a shovel.
 
I called the fire department. Meanwhile he beats the fire with his shovel, and then got in the car and left! The fire department came out and just talked to the woman that lives there. The guy that did it is a young guy (maybe 19) who doesn't live there, is a boyfriend of one of the daughters. But all they did was talk to her, didn't even check to make sure the areas were really out! I couldn't believe it!
 
Ugh, I really didn't need to get stressed out and upset. But I really don't want my house burnt down. It still smells like gasoline out there, and it's a windy day! All it takes is one ember you know? They also smoke over there too, and the ground is soaked is gasoline! nono
 
So guess I'll be back in the bathroom again later, can never get that upset without it triggering D. Here I was doing better today too. Oh and my blood pressure! Really, haven't people ever heard of ant poison? I get the worse neighbors!! Thanks for letting me vent!

I have 6 college kids living next door to me. You can imagine that when they are partying it up (*very* loudly) past midnight and I am exhausted from this DD I lose my patience very quickly! I had to call the cops on Saturday! I can totally relate. And, I can relate to the anxiety and stress triggering D!

Ugh I feel for you! The people who lived there before them were like that. Had teenagers partying at all hours of the night. So when they moved in, I thought maybe we got a quiet family. I had even told her when they moved in about all the loud parties they had, and how happy I was they were gone. But they've been almost worse. Loud with their cars, music, and now fires??

Just a little while ago the guy went out there messing with the area, with a lit cigarrette in his hand! My husband told him he didn't want anymore fires up against our property. He called us "cop callers". Real mature! I'm trying to just stay inside and relax. LOL

Sorry about your crazy neighbors! I wouldn't blame prednisone on this one...I would be upset about stupid ant fires off steriods too!

I am afraid of what I would do on that situation if I were also on a high dose of steroids-off the steroids I would get very upset-probably call the police.

I would be upset too! It is very windy here in Kalamazoo Michigan too. Do you live in the midwest? anyways, if it makes you feel better I had my wallet stolen at Babies r us this weekend and they didn't let me use the phone as my cell was in my van parked way far away. As I was freaking out I too under the stress felt for a minute that I was literally going to poop my pants. And I am not on steroids!

Good luck with those neighbors!
