White noise or dead silence?
Do you have to have a little ambiance to fall asleep, or do you prefer such quiet solitude you can hear what the moths are thinking?
I can't fall asleep to noise. I use earplugs to deaden as much background noise as possible. I suffered from sleep deprivation until I discovered earplugs. "White noise" like a fan is still too noisy for me.
I absolutely cannot fall asleep without white noise such as a fan in the background. If I have no white noise, I have a very hard time falling asleep!
dead silence. . . . .every single time i hate white noise.
A little noise please, but not the radio, I would want to actively listen to that.
Rain, crickets, a fan, a freight train ~
A hub idea just entered my head, you best let me know if you want first shot at this one!
Unless it's the sound of waves crashing on the sand or rain on a tin roof, I'd prefer silence. My pet hate is trying to get to sleep when there's a wall clock ticking, I can't stand that!
When I'm tired, I go to sleep, whatever the noise, and I can sleep anywhere.
The picture, very Huxley.
i'm kinda like MickS...now it might not be the deepest most restful sleep, but when i'm tired i can (and do) go to sleep regardless of what noise is happening. if i could choose, i would prefer silence, but as a mother of three teenagers, i have learned to just do without that!!
Definitely dead silence. I have enough noise going on in my own head and it takes me awhile to fall asleep. I would hate background noise on top of my own thoughts!

Does white noise work for you?It helps some people sleep or concentrate, but it only makes the situation worse for others.

I have tinnitus, which most nights causes sleep deprivation. I try to nap during the day to catch up on sleep. I rarely sleep more than two hours. This started about 6 months ago. My ear doctor recommended I get a sleep machine. Has anyone ever used a sleep machine to aid with ... uhmmm ... sleep?

The "I can't move or talk" nightmare, what does it mean?Have you ever had the nightmare where something or someone is holding you down and no matter how hard you try, you cannot move, and when you try to scream for help nothing comes out? Believe it or not this is a very typical...

How do you feel about customers falling asleep while you are cutting their hair.I have severe sleep apnea ( rated at 71) and am always sleepy. sitting in a barber's chair makes me very sleep. My barber is not concerned. And, in 15 years I have never received a bad haircut from him
