Mr Furlong and I have taken to sleeping in separate beds. We don’t “fit” anymore.
I have a sore wrist and forearm that only troubles me at night and I have to stretch it out on the bed to get comfortable. And Mr Furlong has shoulder pain for which he has to do the same.
But in the opposite direction.
So we each sleep in a separate double bed.
Night before last, I decided it was my pillow that was causing my arm discomfort, so I slept with completely different pillows – soft and squidgee.
Also, just to set the scene, I had over-eaten on prawns and avocado at supper.
At three AM I awoke with THE most terrible heartburn, ever, ever in my life and a hell of a pain high up between my shoulder blades under the nobble at the base of my neck.
I decided I was having a heart attack.
I imagined all sorts of horrible problems like having to wake Mr Furlong and which vaping device I should take to hospital when he took me, and whether I should put on my makeup!
But, Vicks Vapo Rub applied awkwardly to the neck nobble and two ant acid pills, seemed to ease my pain.
And the return to my old pillows helped. I sat-up-slept for the rest of the night.
Last night, I tried eating less, another, different selection of firmer pillows, and Vicks rub on the nobble.
And, yes, thanks for asking, I feel much better today!
