What's your favorite fairy tale? I can tell you mine! I am twenty-one years old and suffer from fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and severe chronic fatigue. I am always in pain and there days when even my clothes bother me or I can't touch my own skin without discomfort. Until six months ago, I spent a lot of day either sitting or laying down on our twenty-five-year-old sofa, constantly plumping up pillows, always shifting about, and never being truly comfortable. So, a few months ago I made the decision that it was time-actually past time-to get a recliner!
I was determined to find the perfect chair. This turned out to be more difficult than I expected. I wandered from furniture store to furniture store, feeling very much like Goldilocks in the home of the three bears. One chair would be too hard, the next too soft, or too small, or too big, too poorly made, too expensive...but finally! After weeks of searching I found the La-Z-Boy "Pinnacle" recliner that felt just right!
What a drastic change! Suddenly I could rest in plush perfection! Every muscle felt supported and I found myself relaxing with no fear of pain. I noticed that I felt more rested and my energy improved. I actually looked forward to sitting in my recliner! It has been three months since my La-Z-Boy "moved in" and unlike Goldilocks, I don't have to give up my chair!
Today, I'm still a lot like that little golden-haired girl. You will often find me peacefully asleep at home, happily dreaming in comfort. Thanks to La-Z-Boy, I will never be without my "just right" chair again!
