first of all, this sounds like someone with OCD. I fail to see why many of you think that this person is a drug addict--like, does this woman look
like a drug addict? have you ever smelled anything weird or are her friends drug addict-looking types?
At most, I could see this person being on Adderall--I've heard that people often want to smoke a lot and clean while on it. If you're in school--that
would also make sense. Maybe she doesn't have a script and she's getting it illegally.
I think you should just straight-up ask her if she's on Adderall or anything else--haven't you already asked her? What did she say?
Regardless, it is none of your business--and I think it's more likely that she is OCD unless you have evidence that proves otherwise.
It doesn't sounds like she's endangering you through her actions, though.
The only thing I have a problem with that she's doing is touching things that don't belong to her. You should never lay your hands on another
person--or on something that does not belong to you. You break it--you bought it. I suggest locking doors your rooms, then, if you don't want her
touching your things.
Maybe you should take a picture of the place you live in, though. Is it messy? It just might be. She's doing you a favor by cleaning,
though--regardless of if you like it or not. Maybe you should start looking at it that way and do her a favor and try to be as neat as possible to
make her job easier. OCD isn't the same thing as being a nutcase. It doesn't sound like she's doing this to be a bother. Unfortunately, I don't think
you can ask her to leave if she's making her payments on time. You can, however, ask her to keep it down at night--but consider: what if your mess
makes her feel the same way her loudness makes you feel?
I think you should be kind and try to have some empathy. Because this woman probably just has severe OCD and some anxiety.
Oh, and remember that it could be worse. If she is paying, she has the same right as you have to be there. Being mean to her isn't going to do
anything besides hurt her. Maybe be a leader, yourself, and decide to change the way you do things in order to make everyone happy. Otherwise, you're
just complaining because she's bossy and cleans a lot.
