only thing i come up with is this, when watching TV you relax your mind. then it is able to stop the constance thinking process enough for you to sleep.
for me my mind is going 1,000 miles a min all the time. so i have to be able to Chanel it on 1 thing long enough to sleep. if that makes since to anyone.
and i have found the pest shows to sleep to are on the history Chanel. i love to watch or lesion to things i can learn something. even if i do fall asleep i can still retain some of it.
if i fall asleep watching a action or horror movie i will have dreams about them and wake up 100 times. my mind is working on the plot.LOL
i do hope and pray you can find something that works for you soon.
and my prays go out to everyone, an for a cure very soon...
still looking for answers.
