Guerrilla tactics and your bed

Make your bed a close friend.

First I added a memory foam topper. I admit when my pain was at its worst, this was not really helpful.

Next I added a heated mattress pad. I have always been anti electric blanket because I didn’t think being in bed with electricity was healthy.

My sister in law has one and she turns hers off once her bed is heated.

I luxuriate in the heat and the softness of my bed. I leave it on all night. It makes me happy thinking about it.

Before RA I always had a down comforter. With RA it was too heavy to move.

The heat is much better. Bet I’ll have it on all summer.

What do you do to make your bed your friend?

Woman, friend, mother, RN, photographer, gardener, writer, researcher, observer, swimmer. Pretty much the same as everyone else with my own little twist to things. RA, and three cancers and counting. Life is good despite the obstacles. It's worth the ride just to see the infinite variations of the human spirit.
