For many years I have been sleeping on an old lumpy mattress, as we never had money in the early days of our marriage and always bought cheap beds and sofas. I put off buying a new one because I thought it was something that could wait. There always seem to be more important items that need a practising such as a bike for one of the kids, a new computer for my husband or some furniture which will be used by the whole family.
I eventually came to my senses after my doctor told me that sleeping on a poor quality mattress was one of the main causes of a bad back. I have suffered from back pain for the last 18 months, and did not consider that my bed might be the cause; although I did realise it probably was not helping matters. After visiting the doctor, I told my family and everything else must take second place until my back issues were sorted out.
My kids are quite selfish, but my husband agreed. We decided to buy a Tempur mattress after reading many positive reviews online. We both agree we are getting a better nights sleep than ever before in our lives, and are just annoyed that we didn’t purchase one sooner.
