    I Just Can't.

    I cannot get to sleep with lights on, or hearing noise, other than my fan.  I need my fan's noise to sleep, ironically.  I sleep very lightly, after having had to take care of babies, so I wake up at most noises.

    I need to hear something. Cars, planes, crickets. I need to hear something. The silence scares me. Every night I play music until I fall asleep. Without it I just can't sleep.
