Living Incurably Solutions


After this post, I’m heading down to the basement to fetch 1/2 of a Memory Foam type mattress pad rolled up sleeping bag style and secured with – I think – duct tape.  We’re going away for 2 nights and unless the hotel beds have crazy good mattress toppers, I’ll be unrolling my own softness on my side of the bed.

I used to prefer a firm mattress, but if you have chronic pain and/or nerve sensitivity that makes sleeping on a firm mattress rather torturous, you’ll understand why I made the switch.  When I moved in with Christopher, I tried to convert him to my soft sleeping preference.  He wasn’t a fan but came up with an ingenious yet simple solution – he cut the damn thing in half.

Our 1/2 and 1/2 bed and Gil Pender’s tail. He has decided to stay neutral and sleeps on both sides of the bed equally.

Now half stays on the bed all the time and half lives in the basement  and goes on trips with me.  It’s a hassle to bring along, yes, but if it ensures good sleep, then there’ll be less I’m-feeling-woozy-we-must-leave-now hassle.

I’m sharing this because I never would have thought of the Duh, Cut It In Half Solution, and wanted to to pass that along to anyone out there who might be as dense as I am sometimes.  Hope it’s helpful.

  1. have a question….what did he use to cut the memory foam? we have thought about getting a topper and cutting it up to put under the cushions of the couch, I have troubles with my tail bone. But my husband said….”I have no idea how to cut that stuff” Now I know someone who does. 🙂



  2. I love this idea!! My boyfriend just happily sleeps on the memory foam with me. A memory foam mattress topper is a must! 🙂 Thanks for sharing this post! ❤ xo

      • Thank you! I can’t remember the exact website that I used but I just googled “Free Online Signature” and chose one and then saved it as a jpeg and whenever I do a post I just add it from my media. 🙂
