“I need two behind my head,” he said. “Otherwise I’ll get dizzy. I need one in the small of my back. Otherwise I’ll get a backache. And one beneath my knees. Otherwise my feet will swell up.”

    If pillows only knew that they’d be used for so many therapeutic reasons its head would swell and the pillow would need another pillow to relieve the swelling.

    I’ve tried the pillow behind the back and it didn’t do a thing for my back pain. Good write!

      I keep one under my knees when on my back and between my knees when I turn on my side.
