I've had the same bed for a very long time. Since I was at least 7 or 8. But eventually I wore a hole in the middle of the mattress eventually. (On both sides) Which was all that was left of my bed really. So the springs hurt to sleep on
it. I started sleeping on the floor of my game room on a couple of little dog bed pad things (wrapping in blankets on the linoleum covered concrete floor.......for about 2 years.
We finally got the money to spend on a new bed for me and purchased one. But for about 3 months or so...maybe less (can't remember) The furniture place held my bed hostage cause I hadn't yet got a mattress for it.
Long story short. It FINALLY ARRIVED!
....Now I just need a mattress for it..... Lol
