To think dh could support me about the noisy neighbours

We live in a semi detached property and next door are our parents ages so hearing loss is kicking in. However they insist on having their TV stuck on the party wall at a volume that means we can hear it over and above our TV.

This is ontop of other noise issues with them such as talking loudly outside their front door/under our bedroom window at antisocial hours

I have health issues (including migraines) which are significantly affected by sleep deprivation and when I have a migraine I need as near as dammit silence (which I can get in my bedroom bar their yakking and their TV!)

Dh says live and let live and ignore it. But I can't when it causes me physical pain

I've tried talking to the neighbours and had no result. I'm on a very short fuse!

I suffer from migraines too so I understand the need for silence. I doubt your neighbours will change their behaviour. Could you try earplugs perhaps?
What would you like your husband to do? I assume he's had a word. Maybe complain to the council about the noise at unsociable hours.

He refuses to speak to them and leaves it all to me. He also doesn't want to go to the council for fear of reprisals

why do you imagine your DH speaking to them will produce a different outcome to you speaking to them? confused

Because the husband of the couple doesn't listen to women

Speak to the council OP,it doesn't matter what your husband wants this is affecting your health and needs to be sorted out.
