    Thatís fantastic )
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I suffer from depression and anxiety and it's always been the worst at night. After looking for insomnia cures one day I stumbled across the weighted blanket. Its basically a quilt with poly beads in each square. I made my own since they are super expensive. It took lots of time and cursing, but I did it all by myself. I felt very accomplished and I had a new thing to try. Needless to say it worked wonderfully. My sleep woes aren't completely cured, but I feel really safe and secure at night now.

    I'm a stomach sleeper because I need the pressure on me which the blanket helps and also helps me sleep in a healthier position for my back. Restful sleep really helps with both the anxiety and depression. I take ambien about half as often.

    Apparently weighted blankets are not suitable for people with sleep apnoea or asthma/COPD or other respiratory conditions.
