Writer's Block: Roommate from Hell

Have you ever had a nightmarish roommate? What made you incompatible? How did you eventually resolve your conflicts?

I had one nightmarish roomate in college. She was depressed all the time she would draw the curtain closed after she came home from classes and would watch soap operas and cry for hours. She never liked having the windows open and if I opened my window she would sneak on my side of the room on the windowsill behind our furniture and close my window. The air would be so stagnant in our room that I would wake up with nose bleeds every morning and my pillow would be covered in blood. She was not very cleanly and she was overly bossy and I was actually older than her.  She was so blatantly depressed all the time that it in turn made me completely depressed I would cry without even knowing why I was doing it. I made friends with the girl who lived next door and would hide out in her room a lot to get rid of the stress. After the year was over the girl was moving to a different dorm thankfully and the girl next door moved in with me. She was a great roomate after that we laughed the whole two years left of school. It was a dream after the nightmare I lived my first year away from home.
