Today, after 3 days of interrupted sleep, I confronted my new neighbor about the noise his wife keeps making during their "private time". He then let me know the noise is actually from his daughter, who's mentally disabled and isn't taking the move well. FML

Sorry for both you and the girl! My neighbors have a child who throws temper tantrums for hours at a time. I got an air purifier that knocks out the sound with beautiful white noise! That's a good option for people who don't like or want earplugs.

No way to have known I suppose, but maybe it'd be better in the future not to assume and make accusations about things - just to avoid conversation that can turn a little uncomfortable like this one. Best of luck getting back on your sleep schedule though OP, hopefully she'll adjust soon or you'll find a better way to sleep!

just another example of how our assumptions can be wrong sometimes, but as people have already said don't be hard on yourself, could've happened to anyone

No need for slinking, there was no way OP could have known, and I'm sure the neighbor knew that. The way it's described in the FML the neighbor didn't seem too upset or mad about it. Just apologize and I'm sure everything will be fine (and hell, OP got to know their new neighbors a little better).
