Unlike others that need silence when they sleep, I need sound.
Nasty tinnitus, if I don't hear "white noise", I only hear the sirens and bells in
my head and it can drive me mad. It gets louder and louder if that's all I can hear.
Eased when I got my own TV for Christmas when I was age 11. (B&W 10 Inch screen!-YAY)
I could finally fall asleep in 15 minutes instead of three hours.
Low volume, dull programs with droning voices.
47 years later, the TV is on all night with a dull (uninteresting) narrated channel.
