Very FRUSTRATED!

Ok....I just tried to lay down to take a nap, to make myself feel a bit better. Yea right! I sleep in a hospital bed, with an old fashioned mattress, instead of the hard hospital bed mattress. I have a gel pad on top of that, and a down feathered bed pillow on top of that! And it still feels like I'm laying on the street! My hips, legs, and back started hurting pretty bad! I got up a half hour later. No luck. What else is there that can make my bed feel more like a bed, then concrete? I just don't get it! ggguuurrrrr! This gets so frustrating!

Lisa, when my bed feels like concrete to me, I recline in a lazy boy chair or on the sofa instead. Take your featherbed thing and double it over and put it on the sofa with some pillows to prop yourself up with.  Do you have a heating pad? Put that on the worst pain spot and then move it to the next. Do you have any chamomille tea...that relazes me somewhat! Put a good movie on tv and try to relax....think about seeing the doctor tomorrow....maybe write down some things that you want to tell him that you may forget....I do that cause when I see the doctor, it just all flows out and I sound like I am making no sense at all!!!!!! Let me know how you are feeling....I will think of something else for you to do....K?

Aaaaaaawwww....thank you! :o) I used to do that! I don't know why I didn't think of that again....duh! lol I would go from bed to bed in the house, and then to the couches! lol I will do that tonight! Yes...I really should right down the things I want to tell the doctor. I do the same thing....I ask him if I'm making any since...lol. Thank you so much! You are so nice to me. :o) I will also find that heating pad of ours. :o) Thank you so much! Lisa
