The new chair, and sleep.

This pic is for Eve and Fineartist, who saw my post about this chair (that I got for health reasons) and voiced some confusion as to how, exactly, one would sit in it. This is how you sit in the chair, although you can also sit with your feet on the floor in front of the chair. It works, I'll tell ya that... I was in bed by 12:30 last night. I haven't even bothered trying to go to bed before about 3am in many months, and typically wasn't able to fall asleep until something more like 5am. My feet and legs didn't ache because there's no way for me to sit on them in this chair, and the restless leg syndrome didn't start up even once. It was beautiful to fall asleep so quickly, and stay asleep for so long. I slept 10 hours last night. I've been averaging 3-5.

I think most people would say that a new computer chair was a frivolous expenditure. For some, maybe it is. For me, this baby has worked a miracle. Like Ang says, sometimes it's the little things that make a difference. I don't do a lot of buying for myself, but this is one new thing I don't regret getting. I can honestly say it's improved my quality of life.


  1. Glad to hear that the chair did it for you, E. It's amazing how such minute things in our lives, like bad chairs/bad sitting habits can affect us!

    Wow! 10 hours of sleep! That must be a record! Makes the price of that chair seem worth every penny, doesn't it?

  2. I can't believe what a difference it made, seriously. My back is adjusting to sitting up straight, but my legs and feet are amazingly untingly, and my eyes are open fully, and I think I have greater brain function than I have in a year!

    Every single penny, and many more!

  3. Hey, that's not YOU! We wanted a picture of YOU in the chair!

    *runs away pouting*

  4. lol, my digital died Eve, there will be no quickie pics again for quite some time... sorry :P

    I really do need to get that damn roll of film to the proper walmart department and have it developed...

  5. Yep, I'm with Eve, we wanted to see you stradling that contraption...

    Okay, I am absolutely tickled that you are getting some sleep and aren't feeling all tingly in the limbs, though tingly can be sort of fun...I Know, wrong tingly.

    I'm also glad that the super chair is helping you with your posture.

    Now me, I'd have my feet propped up on those front pads and I'd by damn find some way to slouch...I do so love a good challenge. xx, Lori

  6. lol, tingly toes are definitely a good thing on occasion eh? Hmmm... maybe I'll find a kinky use for this chair!

    I do so love a good challenge too! ;)

  7. LOL...hmm...maybe I should get one of these things ;-)
