The Comfort of Weighted Blankets

The comfort of a weighted blanket is a 21st Century Design but a 19th Century feeling! The heavy homemade quilts on a bed in a room with crisp, cold air, heated by a fireplace or wood heater is definitely from an era gone before. These quilts are what the weighted blankets bring to mind.

Feeling the Comfort of Weighted Blankets

The comfort of a weighted blanket is a 21st Century Design but a 19th Century feel! The heavy homemade quilt on a bed in a room with crisp, cold air, heated by a fireplace or wood heater is definitely from an era gone before. These quilts are what the weighted blankets bring to mind.

PLUSH WEIGHTED BLANKET

A well built weighted blanket is fashioned in a modern factory with state of the art equipment to bring together the pockets of Premium Glass Beads in fine, durable stitching.

What is not built in the factory but comes with the Blankets is the Feeling of Being Hugged! I can see why a baby sleeps better when it is bundled! The feeling of being wrapped warm and safe is a true need in all of us I think.

These blankets are good for Anxiety, RLS, AUTISM, Insomnia, Bipolar,  and other things I don’t have personal experience with so I can’t speak to much more.

10%  to 15% OF BODY WEIGHT FOR SAFETY

Some weighted blankets are fifteen pounds, twenty pounds, and some are twenty-five pounds for you to purchase according to your weight and bed size. Do be careful to not buy too large for a child so as to overpower them! I have one for children here for seven pounds.

10% of body weight
10% OF BODY WEIGHT FOR SAFETY

It is best for the blanket to be no more than 10% to 15% of a person’s body-weight for safety. Body-weight for the person using the weighted blanket is more important than the bed size which is normal with a blanket.

If you or the person you are purchasing the blanket for is a child or a sick weak patient, then you need to think twice about the size or the purchase for these weighted blankets are heavy.

GETTING A GOOD FITTING BLANKET

What makes the blanket pockets fold carefully around you and give you a soothing hug as you calm and go to sleep also makes them heavy. Moving a lot in your sleep will require a wider blanket than a quieter person needs, while most people settle down under the blanket and lie still.

The weighted blankets are of all different prices and sizes as you will find when you click on one and go to KOHL’S. Each one has quite a lot to say about its good points to help you buy it.

A Special Day-Every Three Weeks

Every three weeks I spend a special day with my husband and my nurse Renee, who is specially trained, while I have my Infusion Therapy, my IVIG.

A Special Day-Every Three Weeks

Today things are a little different for me. I will take it a little easier this morning, and I will make it a point to do only calm things. Travis will help me with my hair when I take my bath this morning, for my caregiver doesn’t come in until this afternoon.

After my bath, we will watch westerns from the 60’s and 70’s, like Wagon Train, Laramie, Dead or Alive, and my favorite, Gunsmoke. Shows that will not upset me. Usually, I watch the news, but I really get into the news and have my opinions about it. So today is a western day with Travis.

Renee, my Nurse

A text comes from my nurse and she will be here at about 4 pm, and that is the usual time. Renee is an extremely good nurse, who is very well-trained in what she is doing. Sometimes Renee talks about her family and her garden, so Travis and I both enjoy calmly visiting with her the four hours it takes for me to have my IVIG.

Renee comes to my house every three weeks to help me have my IVIG. When I first started them it was every four weeks. As I remained weaker, and the Myasthenia Gravis symptoms worsened, the neurologist increased the dosage and the frequency.

Renee takes my blood pressure and temperature every thirty minutes or so. More often, when we first start one. It is because I don’t have any immunities, and to lessen the force of the Myasthenia Gravis symptoms. This is a form of Muscular Dystrophy.

The IVIG Is Over

The IVIG is over and Renee has left, and everything went well. I am as tired as if I had worked all day, and I didn’t do anything but sit here and calmly watch TV and visit. Renee is tired, but she doesn’t show it, and she has to drive about fifty-five miles until she gets home. She is the closest nurse to me that is trained to do this.

Anyway, the IVIG is over and I will feel stronger in the morning when I wake at about 4 am. Tomorrow I have a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon, but I can work in the morning.

Description of IVIG

Quote from All Geek, “A health care professional to come to his or her home, as the treatment requires several hours of sitting while the IVIG is delivered, and medical personnel must be available to monitor the patient for signs of an allergic reaction or any other complications related to the treatment.”
