Have you ever been in a pillow fight? I'm about ready to have a fight with mine. I want to rip it to shreds. I hate pillows. I can't find a good one. I'll find one I think I like, only for a few months and I'm miserable again. That's where I'm at now -- miserable. I'm in so much pain right now that I can barely see straight. My head hurts, my neck aches and my shoulders are sore. I'm pretty sure my pillow is to blame. Awhile back I tried a down-alternative one from Target. I loved it for the first few months. Then it lost its shape, so I figured I'd get another one. I'm back to square one again. It has no shape, no support and I hurt. Pillows are either too hard or too soft. I just can't handle the thought of buying one of those really expensive ones, only to be hurting again a few months later. I'm open to suggestions here, so if you have any, feel free to let me know.
I've read that you should replace your pillow every few years. Another source said to replace it every few months. Pillows go all the way back to Ancient Egypt where they were found in tombs. They were used mainly by the rich. There are three main types of pillows -- bed pillows, orthopedic pillows and decorative pillows. In the US, there are four sizes of bed pillows, which include standard, queen, king and body. Orthopedic pillows include neck pillows, U-shaped travel pillows to hold the head up, lumbar pillows for the back, and donut pillows for sitting on. Decorative pillows refer to cushions, throw pillows, floor pillows and novelty pillows. There are even husband pillows, which feature two arms. I don't know if you'd call those bed pillows, orthopedic pillows, decorative pillows, or stupid pillows. Right now I think all pillows are stupid. I'd like to throw mine out in the snow, or hack it up with a knife. I'm about ready to wad up the cat in a ball and see how she works. She doesn't look too happy about that. Where's the Tylenol?
