The first time I threw myself onto the mattress, I had laid there for about four minutes when I started crying. Even today I do not know why this happened. My whole body made these small movements you sometime have just before you fall asleep. There was no pain, and muscle by muscle I felt the pains give up, and my body finally relaxed.
Earlier, I was taking at least 14 different drugs each day, some of them being opiates. After I had used the mattress for two weeks, one beautiful day I found myself thinking that I’m not in so much pain today, and that maybe I should try to leave the medicines out. And that day, I stopped taking the medicines. ALL of them.
