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?

Anyways I think my low end is set at 60bpm...If my sleeping rate was lower before could the sleeplessness be because the low bpm(6) is set to high ?

Lastly I have tech's and EP's telling me 6 weeks I am good to resume everything vs. s...
