I have an adjustable bed got it two years ago, I had slept in a recliner in the living room for over ten years, I can' lay flat, and I sleep in a Fowlers position,( Kind of a sitting reclining position) anyway the adjustable bed is fantastic, you want to change positions a little you just pess a button on the wireless remote and you can raise or lower the head or the foot of the bed! It is really nice! We got two of them (two single adjustable beds) they fit in a extra long king sleigh bed frame. Now I got both since the wife moved up stairs and the devorce is pending!
I am sorry about the way you have been treated by your church, I know some of them are like that, it just doesn't seem right to me, I will leave it at that.
It is easy to become isolated and hermit like when you have CP issues, I have done that also, but I am finding out the hard way that, that is not necessarily the best thing to do. Anyway I hope thing get better for you.
