Just curious, do you take naps? If so do you nap in your chair? I’m not much of a nap person. I envy those who can curl up on the couch with a snuggly blanket. Oh, wait that’s my cat. Okay, I guess I envy my cat.
I’m a light sleeper, so naps aren’t really my thing unless I’m sick. I envy those who can actually fall asleep in their wheelchairs. Talk about impressive! It would certainly make long car rides easier!
In full disclosure, I have “old man syndrome” which means I can sleep anywhere, anytime, except when I am riding in the car.
If I had a full time caregiver I might think about getting into my bed but since I only have a couple hours of help a week and the enormous help of my wife, who is out working much of the time, I have learned to sleep in my chair as needed. Transferring me to my bed is just too difficult to be done often. Plus once in my bed I can’t turn off my back so it isn’t that much better anyway.
