Mattress woes

We've had our $400 mattress for 3 years and initially thought it good quality. Indeed, it was great to start with. The springs are interconnected down the length of the bed, so you don't end up with a dip in the middle of the bed, causing you to roll into each other.

But that doesn't mean there's no dip at all, oh no! It only took a year or two for dips to form beneath us. An uncomfortable hollow on the edge of the bed.

Now I learn that our lovely mattress is really just a low-to-mid-range model. A friend just bought a new mattress to rectify their sleeping woes. The cost?


Holy fuck, that's expensive. Needless to say, we won't be buying a top of the line mattress any time soon.

We have to do something, though. My back is getting worse by the day. (By the night, actually.) Too much longer sleeping in a curve, and I foresee spending a mattress' worth on chiropractic or physio bills... :-(
