For the last five months I’ve been sleeping in the recliner. The last time I tried to sleep in my bed I woke up hurting more than when I went to sleep. After consulting with Ken about how he was sleeping we decided our old mattress / box springs had to go (as I mentioned yesterday).
The bed arrived and it is much better than the old one but I’m still having problems sleeping in it. I slept for two hours before I woke up with a horrible back ache. I stayed in bed – partly because I was so tired and partly because I thought it was just my back / muscles acting up – and spent the rest of the night in the bed. I woke up regularly in pain – back not legs mostly. Now I have to decide whether it was just a bad night because of the level of pain I was in yesterday or if it was due to the new bed. I’ll try it again but not tonight as I work tomorrow and need to be able to function more fully.
Ken, on the other hand, slept better so that is a good thing. At least he got a good night’s sleep and feels better this morning.
