Nothing like an apparent domestic violence situation waking you up in the middle of a good sleep. The kids' screaming was heart-wrenching, and I'm glad the police finally showed up ... now I'm wide awake at 2:30 am ... UGH

Wow I know what that sounds like I'm so sorry for the kids. I had this happen just last week the people right above me, didn't last long no cops showed up. I do not like apartment living but I have no choice.

Is it bad for me to say I’m happy I wasn’t there?? (Not that your lack of sleep makes me happy).

MrLizard Level 8 June 25, 2018

Nope. I wish I hadn't been there either.

That is sad and it brings back bad memories of my father coming home drunk and raising hell with my mother. I always went to bed early so I could get some sleep before he came home in a rage and woke everyone in the family, and I'm sure a few neighbors, up. This was way before domestic violence made the news. It was just a fact of life for a lot of people. I was also married to a Marine who had PTSD among other symptoms from the Vietnam War. I have startle syndrome and PTSD from those two relationships. It's always the children that suffer besides the long suffering wives. I'm glad domestic violence is in the forefront of the news. If it had been back during my childhood, maybe mine would have been happier.

I could tell you some stories about my son's childhood and teenage years and my years as the spouse of an alcoholic ... sorry you had to go through all this.

@germangirl90439 I feel for anyone who is married to an abusive alcoholic whether it be a wife or a husband. Or anyone who is married to an abusive person that isn't an alcoholic. No one should have to endure that, much less the children. I'm sorry you went through it, also.

Oh, how stressful, and sad for everyone involved.

I feel for the kids in this situation. They're going to grow up thinking that this shit is normal. That this is how people interact with one another. Then the cycle will begin all over again.

Exactly!

Aww I'm sorry GG that's the worst.

Tons of adrenaline and nothing you can do.

Bad, bad, bad. I am very proud to say... I had never pushed or struck a woman in my entire life. And that include as a child laying my hands on any of my sisters.

I'm sorry that happened.

Here in Thailand I live in apartment buildings but I usually feel like I'm the only one in the building.

The walls are concrete block so I hear nothing, even though all the rooms have balconies and the sliding screen doors to the balconies stay open year around.

The Thai themselves are a quiet, polite people.

I live in a townhouse community and it's usually very quiet. These people seemed to be right outside my bedroom window, they were that loud.

Such a shame.

Sounds dreadful.

I hope you can get back to sleep and I hope no one was hurt.
