    When its super hot, then I would put

    that AC or fan on. But when its cold as a ice cube, I grab a giant blanket and sleep with it.

    I am such a picky sleeper.

    I wake up very easily and my body temperature goes up when I sleep. I go to sleep most nights with the fan on and blankets snug and comfortable but in a few hours I am sweating blanket comes off. Another hour I need to put another fan on. I am up every few hours just because I...

    I have a fan on right now.

    If it isn't on I can't sleep. The dead silence just kills me.

    My fan doesn't really work very well anymore

    so it's just the noise now. Typical, it worked fine in the winter when it was freezing cold -_-

    It's Suffocating

    I feel like I can't breathe when the fan's not on. I like the swishing noise and when it's not on, the silence suffocates me. You can hear every little thing moving in the night - starting from the tick-tock of the clock to the occasional car driving in the street outside. I can...

    Cause it's hot, and if its not on,

    I can hear everything. Every little noise lol my own breathing, my pulse, household noises. It would literally keep me up all through the night.

    This may sound silly

    but I can't sleep unless my room is cool, but I need a blanket to be comfortable. Seems contradictory.

    Turn The Fan...Back On!!!!

    It's a big ****** deal. I can not even for a second think about sleeping without a fan on. When I was younger I would have to bring a fan with me to sleepovers. If the fan shuts off at night...i might as well stay up. I guess it all started when I was little and I didn't like...

    Or, if not a fan, something to provide

    white-noise. Completely dark, and the cooler the better. :)

    In the summer months here in Vegas,

    it gets over 100 degrees at times. I love having a fan on when I am in bed sleeping. I love sleeping nude as well, with my husband because of the heat here.

    Feeling a cool Breeze

    while dosing off is a great feeling.. Also, then noise of the fan keeps me from thinking too much which usually keeps me awake.

    Even when It's in the middle of the day.

    Ever have a sneeze, yawn, grunt of pain, cough, then topping it off with a burp I pain? They're not fun

    I enjoy the cool air but I need the relaxing noise more.

    must be the 'white noise' it creates

    but I find having the fan on comforting when I want to get to sleep

    It's mostly about the quiet noise

    that slightly blocks out anything going on ( I'm a light sleeper )

    Fan Of Any Fan

    Ever since I was little I needed to have a fan to sleep. As a child when I slept the noise would sometimes irritate me, but I felt like I needed it to fall asleep. I am prone to hypnagogic sensitivity and phenomena, so as a kid I felt like if a fan was pointed at me it would keep...

    My fan keeps me alive in away.

    .. It blows air in my face while I sleep. I have sleep apnea and everytime I wake up from naps I feel short of breath, and my heart is pumping. Ugh My heart also physically hurts... Not how I wanted to spend my night.
