A GREAT INFORMATIONAL THREAD
Lindaloo: I agree with you, there are times when we absolutely must get out of our
recliners. I'm not fond of those times but, like you, I arise, go forth and conquer my
Our TV has a separate screen that you can see other programs on as you're scanning
for your pick. Late at night I can look at the screen and see a TV program on
Anacondas or those horrid Camoda Dragons. Those wake me up and send me
flying to the bed of my husband.
"What's wrong, Pamela?" he asks.
Tony: Changing my eating pattern is not going to work. It's a great idea but I
never ever know when I am going to eat. Or if ...
ELEL: I have learned to overcome the sleep medications. I wander in the night
fog wide-eyed awake. Once I get in the lavender scented chair, I'm usually out.

images. You'd have to see the inside of my head to understand.
Your "rotissere position" might be a way to exercise. I wouldn't want to try it

Nurse Beard, I had one of those adjustable beds. I had a bed accident the first
night I got it. I liked it. At the push of a button I could go up, down, sideways,
feet up, head down, shake, roll, rattle. Fun. I played a lot in the new bed.
I got tired and fell asleep. The next day I couldn't barely move. I thought I
had broken my back and neck for all eternity.
Ever try to return a mattress and bedframe? Not easy. However, I did it.
I'm glad you enjoy your bed and use it responsibly.
Susie: Oh yes, I do that hanging off the side. I also do the full frontal where I hit
the keys with my forehead and leave little square imprints. One morning I woke
up and my chair had gone over backward in the night. But strange ... I wasn't in
it. (or perhaps I don't remember)
John: Good idea! A seat belt for our chairs. Actually, we need a harness. Some
of us may need our chairs bolted to the floor.
