    Weighted Blankets?

    Good evening folks,

    I've been riding around the idea of getting ahold of a weighted blanjet. Wandering what are the opinions and general consensus on tgrm? Whenever I would get an x-ray and the nurse placed the lead blanket on; I thought it was quite nice. So just seeing what's out there

    I don't have one but I have heard of them.
    I like pressure and find it very comforting.
    I work with a few people that have them and I find it really helps in relaxation.

    I use a heavy/thick duvet and it works quite well. Can't sleep without that. Tried thinner ones and blankets and they just don't work as well. I just find the pressure comforting.

    But yes, a weighted blanket is expensive. I'm seeing three-figured prices when I looked. :/

    My partner has a weighted blanket, and she loves it. Yes, they are a bit expensive (I paid around $330 for it), but it does seem to be worth it--for her at least. I don't like it at all, lol.

    We bought ours from a local artisan who fortunately had a showroom where we could test out some samples. You should see if anyone in your area makes weighted blankets and test one out for yourself. That'll certainly relieve the anxiety of shelling out a few hundred for something you might not even like.

    I have a weighted blanket and it changed my life. I can't sleep without it. My aunt got it for me for my birthday. It helps me feel more down to earth. I love it and feel very antsy and can't sleep without it. Mine was about 30 dollars and a knock off brand but is 15 pounds and works very well. Helps me feel down to earth when I get disassociation.
    My parents always said: Live every day like it's your last, Live life to the fullest, Treat others how you'd like to be treated and if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all... Pretty sound advice if you ask me.

    I use both a heated blanket and a weighted blanket. They work both so nicely together. My cats also love the blankets too
