I got a birthday present for myself!

The old-timers to this ng know I've suffered from insomnia for years.
Valerian Root capsules seem to help. Melatonin tablets work but give me
very vivid sometimes disturbing dreams.

Years ago I had a "sound machine". I won a gift certificate from some
drawing at work to Sharper Image. So I went there and got a sound machine.
It had about 6 sounds... the ocean, rain, outdoors (crickets and frogs),
yada yada yada. (There was also a heartbeat, but that was meant for babies
or puppies or something.) I had the machine back in 1998 or so.

Fast forward to my having to move here. The sound machine sat there,

I have slept better in the last two nights than I have in the last 30 years.
I love this sound machine!



I know I'm replying to a VERY old post but I'd like to find out if
that sound machine is still operating. Amazon still has it for sale
with some very good reviews but there are a few mentioning that it
dies fairly soon. I'd like to heart your experience before I send
Amazon a fairly large check.
