Bed recommendations

Post by salayatananirodha » Tue Aug 14, 2018 8:30 am

Where would I go about getting a bed for ideally less than a hundred dollars, that is fairly low to the ground and somewhat firm but supple enough for back issues.

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)

I'd look into a camping mat. I have a thermarest neo, and it's very comfortable and adjustable. Plus you can take it anywhere.
The furniture may be exquisite,
And the bars of solid gold,
But once the bird realizes that the cage is a cage,
It finds within that cage
No joy

USA ^_^

I tried a camping mat and I liked it, but it was narrow, so I wouldn't be able to spread out like I like to. I've got serious back issues, so a little more thought goes into this than I'd like.

The best bed I ever had for my back was a 2" Latex Topper Pad, single size. It was firm and soft at the same time. Cost a bit, but it was really worth it for my back. I see they're available on ebay for about $150, but you could probably shop around domesticaly and get a much better price.
I also had a futon, whcih was good for my back but ended up getting lumpy and it was hard. I didn't enjoy going to bed on the futon.
