Well I sleep in the shed. I often say, there's naught amiss with sleeping in a shed, no bed of course although I do have a coarse ex army blanket which in its day was good for repairing tyres; with oh yes, an old oil can as a pillow......oh yes comfort indeed......

Lol, is the oil can pillow supposed to help ease a stiff neck Alan? You do not sleep in a shed! You don't even own a shed, so there.

laugh2 clot! They did not, now stop fibbing! smile

Well, I should probably tell about my bed. Thinking that I was following doctors orders, I suffered for way too many years on a dreaded evil 'firm' mattress that very nearly killed me! Then I smartened up and bought a lovely medium-firm mattress with a cosy soft pillow top and wow, it's so much better!

There you go, a bedtime story... lol!

I think I like mig's story better. It has a better ending than Alan's.

Re: A.S and beds, What do you find best?

Without a doubt--I would prefer a bed over AS any day
(and most certainly a bed is better than a shed)

Hi,
Too soft feels great to get into for the first 1/2 hour or so, but then I wake up feeling more bent over and sore than I did before I went to bed. Too hard make it difficult for me to get comfortable, especially right at first, but I also wake up sore in my tail bone, my hips, my shoulders, and the center of my back, but at least I feel and appear to be more straightened out. So over the years I figured out that an extra firm mattress with a pillow topper is the best for me. I still get the extra firmness I need, but it also cushions my most tender areas at the same time.

This is a strange question, but talking about beds made me think of this. Do you ever wake up and before you move, wonder for just a second if the whole AS thing was just a bad dream?? I've had it for just a couple years now and so my hopeful waking up moments are getting fewer and fewer.

OK, my randomness is over. wink

I take cyclobenzaprine to sleep. 10 to 20 mgs and now it doesn't matter if I sleep in my shed, or on my bed. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzz

Ha ha ha, its not really that great. At least I don't wake up 20 times a night because it hurts to hold still and it hurts to move. Now I only wake up 1 or 2 times. My bed is a pillow top, medium firm. No pillow while on my back (like sue, NOTHING can push my head forward) and a soft pillow for if I roll to my side.
