I Cant Sleep With Lights Or Noise

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 148 People

    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.

    Some charming local characters outside my

    window shouting " I SWEAR TO ******* GOD SHAUNA". The unknown "Shauna" has yet to construct a rebuttal. I miss my old neighbours. They were never home.

    It goes back to when I was a kid to avoid the sounds of snoring and heavy breathing from parents with apnea. Now I use it to drown out crickets, ghetto life, and everything else.

    I have always had a fantasy of sleeping with a friend. Not in a sexual way at all. I just would love to hug them and know that they are there for me when I sleep.
