Annoying Noise

My ICD is driving me crazy. The noise never stops! I have trouble sleeping because the thing keeps me awake. I like noisy environments because I don't have to hear the thing! Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

I wish I could say I live every day to the full but I do not; however, I think I appreciate life more than I did. I revieved a gift this morning from my family of a small stuffed bear who has a pacemaker!
