I have such wonderful friends! I have been helping my friend Darlene with her MIL's estate. Darlene called me last week and asked if I would like one of her MIL's beds so I went over to try it out. I laid down on the bed and my muscles released tensions so strongly that I could feel it as a palpable motion! Well, Darlene and her hubby brought the bed by the other night and yesterday morning I woke up after my first night sleeping on it and it was amazing! For longer than I can recall but at least longer than a year, I have woken up every morning with two knots in my right side...the side I sleep on...one on my hip and the other on my knee. These are pressure points that my old bed just made hurt worse, even with my memory foam mattress pad. Well, yesterday when I woke up there was no pain! For the first time in years I woke up with no pain in my hip and knee! It is amazing to me what a difference a little thing like the bed I sleep on makes. Mind you, I still have pain, just not that pain...and when I have to deal with pain every day, every little bit of no pain that I can experience is precious to me! I'll say it again...I have totally wonderful, awesome friends!!!

how lovely that your friend could give that bed to you. I have a herniated disc and the bed in the hotel room in my old hometown where I stay from Mon to Fri is okay but my own bed which is a captains bed and so a bit higher than a normal bed, is much better for me. Sure it feels great to wake up refreshed. Have a wonderful Sunday and meow purr to your cats.

Thanks, Ritter. It really does make a difference. I remember the last time I stayed in a motel room...the bed there was sooooo much better than my own bed that I wanted to much to take it home with me! Now I finally have a bed that I don't have to dread returning to when I stay in another bed. I will definitely pass on your greetings to my kitties.

The bed in this motel is okay but I'm going to have a hard time when we move into the new place initially. I'm going to have to get a new bed for the new place...and pray I have enough $$$ to do that with after paying all that I have to in order to get moved in!

I always hear that when people change beds they don't have any pain anymore. What a wonderful friend to give you a bed.
