My Partner is a big man 6ft 8 and 24stone he has been sleeping on our very small broken sofa for 7 years as week cant sleep together for a number of reasons. I sleep upstairs in the most uncomfortable bed that is ready to break. Its really low to the floor so on the days I can manage to get out of bed I have to roll off it onto the floor, the rest of the time my partner has to try lift me out. His knees are knackered, he has plantar fasciitis in one foot and a bad back that can make him cry. On my bad days I try not eat or drink so I don't need the toilet etc .. I also have hyperhydrosis which is kind of like massive flushes I use towels to try soak up the sweat and make out its not too bad so my partner doesn't have to deal with me as much. He never really clicks on, he's too busy with everything else! But it really isnt nice spending over 7 hours in a wet bed in wet clothes, luckily I don't smell I'm just soggy and anything that touches me is soggy too.
So this is my first post and I am touching on one problem of many, and I know most of you are experiencing the same problems or have experienced the same problems. But can anyone give me any ideas on how to......
Reduce the pressure on my partner?
Get funding for a heavy duty bedsettee ?
Where is the best place to get an adjustable bed from, how to choose whats best?
Any funding to help get the bed either?
I don't want to come across as "poor old us" I just need advice, we have tried for years to just get on with it and play "everything is GREAT!"....but we just can't any more. Thanks for reading, healing thoughts to you all
