You tried a radio program or television? My ex uses dvd’s to go to sleep. Plays the same, familiar thing over and over to help. I use a radio. I get regular programming and you get used to certain music and stuff. Basically try to listen to something else…external noise works pretty well. Back in the day I’d use a desk fan on full bore just to get to sleep.
