We should all write to Overstock.com & tell them we are thankful for them!!! I've had the fusion (L4/L5), a compression fracture of L2, fibro, & diabetes. My skin hurts ALL the time. I do all the regular stuff...swim, walk when I can, use a heating pad, & take all kinds of meds....anyway, I ordered the 3" gel infused memory foam & it's awesome....and only truly affordable on Overstock!!! My husband also got one for his bed (I can't sleep in the same bed with him cuz it hurts when he moves)...he didn't like his, so I have his topper loosely rolled up & used under my head & shoulders when I read or watch tv in bed...it makes a perfect headrest/pillow! good luck to you & all here.... gail in NCView Thread
I hate that my skin hurts....and I hate that I'm sleeping my life away!!! I hate not being able to drive long distances.....I hate that I can't stand up and make yummy dinners like I used to.....I hate that I can't get get comfy, I hate that nobody can touch me without it hurting like crazy, I hate that I forget everything....View Thread
