It helps some people sleep or concentrate, but it only makes the situation worse for others.

Wow! Fantastic answer! Very in depth. :)
It's never worked for me as a sleep or concentration aid. I'm hoping to get to a neurologist to get tested for a sensory processing disorder one of these days, and see if occupational therapy will work.
I'm a huge fan of Melatonin! Nature Made has a wonderful melt-on-the-tongue melatonin supplement that tastes just like chocolate mint. It helps knock me out but still doesn't keep me asleep.
Thanks for the comment and well wishes! Great hub, too!
You're welcome, and thank you!!
Thank you for allowing me to comment here artist101. A word is to seek Melatonin out on Google or ?. There are consequences with prolonged usage. ESPeck, for your adventure ponder the opposite of white noise & then silence. Can Silence be achieve
tsmog-Prolonged silence isn't something that can be achieved without structural soundproofing. We live between an airport and train yard. I only use melatonin when I know I won't be able to fall asleep. I tend to be careful about any treatments. Thx!
I tend to go either way with the music. Sometimes it helps, while others it distracts me. I think it depends on how much sensory input I had recently.
Lavender is amazing stuff. It's one of my favorite scents. Makes nice tea, too.
Once I save up enough for a smart phone, I might look into an app like that. The music geared towards beta waves tends to relax me very well. Thanks for the comment!
I'm with you there. Give me silence whenever possible!
Interesting that you and your baby seemed to react similarly. I wonder if there's something genetic which determines the effectiveness or ineffectiveness.
