Right now I’m wracking my (went on vacation without telling me) brain in trying to figure out an easier way to change the sheets on my bed without needing bed rest. I can’t seem to figure out if I should cry, vent, rage, laugh about it or just go lay down (on the unmade bed).
I pretty much live in my bed. It is the perfect height for me to sit on it and have my feet on the floor, so I don’t want to raise the bed. Raising it would make it harder to get in and out of, with the possibility of making it more dangerous to falling.
But, because of the arthitis in my hip, and the pain in my lower back, it hurts too much to bend over to take the sheets off and put them back on. Getting down on my knees also isn’t an option because of the pain I have in my knees and ankles.
I’ve looked into those zip-off sheets but they are way too expensive and still don’t address having to put on the top sheet.
Those sheet tuck-in tools won’t help because my bed has a foot board.
And I don’t have anyone I could ask for help in doing this either.
Can any of you help me think of a way that is easier to make my bed?
