It Could Be the Pillow

I was trying to get comfortable in bed the other morning and get back to sleep.  Sometimes I feel like I'm waking up every hour or so all night long, and then other nights I go to sleep and know nothing until it's time to get up in the morning.  The other night I think it was worrying about selling the house and whether or not the would-be buyers would be willing to negotiate - and mostly how in the world was I going to be ready to leave my house.  So, of course, I wasn't sleeping really well.

I tried blaming it on my pillow, though.  I'm wondering if I should try using another pillow for a while.  It seems that, no matter how comfortable a pillow is for a while, it eventually just doesn't seem to work for me.  I wake up feeling like I need to head out to massage montréal (or massothérapie montréal for those who speak French, which I don't.)  I just feel like I'm either not lying on the pillow properly, or it's not supporting me in the right way, or something.  My back feels out of line, my shoulders feel tight, I wake up with a headache, etc.  Yeah, a massage would be nice, wouldn't it? 

I'm sure there is some information available telling me how often I should get a new pillow and what the best type of pillow is for the way I sleep, but I'm not sure that's it.  Usually when I get to this point, I just swap my pillow out for a different kind - one I've used in the past - and I'm good for a while.  Until the next time.

Of course, it could be the stress of selling the house - probably is the stress - but it won't hurt to find that old pillow.  Now, which one was it, and where did I put that thing?
