What a fun thread!

I'm hot in bed. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've actually had to move out to the guest room because I'm so hot in bed and my husband is a cold soul whose hands and feet are often like ice. He likes a very warm room, whereas I sleep with the window open pretty much all year round, the radiator turned down low, a summer weight duvet and a thin, sleeveless, lightweight nightshirt. I like the sort which are like extra long tank tops - but not spaghetti straps, because those slip down my arms and then hurt my neck when I turn over. If I wake in the night, I often begin to burn up as soon as I'm awake and have to throw the covers off or even go to the loo where I can stand on the nice, cold, tile floor! Does that happen to anyone else? It's not that I'm hot so I wake, it's just that when I wake, I start to get hot. It's often the reason I get up before I'm ready to in the morning. I just have to get out of bed to cool off.

I have a mountain of pillows even though I only sleep on one (or at the most two thinner ones) at a time, because depending on how my neck and shoulders are, I need slightly firmer or slightly softer. I used to have a Mediflow water pillow which was great, but they do wear out and they're expensive. The last time I ordered one it came folded in half and was never good. I should have sent it back but I didn't. :oops:

I have a bottle of carbonated water on the floor, a glass of tap water on the bedside table, plus some small sweets to suck in case I wake with a dry throat or worse, a laryngeal spasm. Those are terrifying and I often always wonder if I'm going to die right there and then - anyone else get those? It's probably started by a post nasal drip or the acid reflux or something, but my vocal cords snap shut and I struggle to drag in air. :(

Oh, and I don't like the dark anymore. When I shut my eyes it's not totally dark anymore, it's all fizzes and sparkles etc, and that's bad enough, but I hate seeing it with my eyes open as well. Some of it's migrainous, I think, some may be side effects of the drugs I'm on, no idea what else it might be but the docs aren't interested neither is the optician.

Judy the laryngeal spasms sound terryfying. I do suffer with nasal drip and snore terribly but have never had a spasm like yours :lol: before, and don't want one either. There is a lot of truth in the saying, "you look as though you have been dragged through a hedge backwards"
I look like that every morning. I have frightened the post man on many occassions when he has arrived with a parcel in the early hours of the morning, good job he hasn't got a heart condition. One postman took 3 steps back on my opening the door and literally through my parcel at me and left in a hurry.

well, where do I start :?: I have a love hate relationship with my bed, I can't wait to get in it because I am soooo exhausted,& I can't wait to get out of it because I wake up in agony :crazy: , & what happens in between is something else :!:
I used to think I woke up in the same position as I went off to sleep in, & I thought my husband exaggerated about my erratic behaviour in my sleep, until I saw it for myself on video in hospital last year, they videoed me for 4 nights. Half an hour after dropping off my body jerks every 20 to 30 seconds until I wake up, & I sleep with my arms in the air, shout,scream and snore :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:
Health is like money, we never have a true idea of its value until we lose it.
