I am ready for breakfast in bed. I can sit straight up and hold a tray in my lap. I bit the bullet and went out and bought a memory foam bed (the one that starts with T) on an adjustable base with built in massage. It was a major expenditure for me,
but by shopping around and some haggling I was able to save about a thousand dollars. For one thing I did not pay sales tax. My doctor wrote a prescription for me saying it was medically necessary which really is not a stretch. I have really bad joints
Anyway, I have it. It has taken me 2 weeks to adjust to it. I find my breathing is better because I can elevate the head of the bed and it also helps acid reflux. Initially I thought the massage was just an annoying vibration gimmick, but I have come to
love it. I find it very helpful to elevate the foot of the bed when my feet are swollen after a long day standing and walking when I do work. The massage helps the circulation in my legs and helps to alleviate the restless leg syndrome I suffer with. I
still have joint and back pain but I go to bed earlier and earlier because I am craving the bed.
So now, If I just had someone to bring me breakfast in bed.
