Can't sleep

Civilisation makes me sick. Yet, I need it. I'm spending more time in front of the computer because of web design jobs. So there is not much needlework I can show.
There is a high tone in my left ear (the better one) which keeps me from sleeping or wakes me up very early, recently before 4 in the morning. It seems to be different from a normal acoustic tone. It penetrates earplugs and cushions. But it is not a tinnitus; this one is in my right ear, I know it and it doesn't disturb me much. I seem to "hear" electromagnetic waves. There must be a new device in the house. I think I'll have to write to my neighbours (can't talk to all of them) and ask them to really switch off all W-Lan computers and cordless phones during the night. Today I woke up after 7 hours of sleep, hurray, that's a lot. The tone kept me awake the night before. I'm keeping a diary to find a pattern.
I heard about the Taos Hum. I can hear something similar, but I got used to it. But this is new and very annoying.
Good night, wish me good sleep.

Not pleasant at all. Is it just at home that you hear it?

I hate to hear that this is happening to you. Hope you find the cause of it soon, or that it ceases and you are able to get some good sleep.

How maddening. I hope you find the source soon. You must be onto something with the electronics all around. I wish you peaceful dreams.

Dolores, yes, only at home.

Eva said...

Thanks. I'm learning to sleep firmly against it.
