Sleep Insanity

I've been slowly going insane about my mattress. It isn't flat. It curves down towards the center. I KNOW it does. But how can it, it's less than five years old. Is it all in my head? Is it the way I sleep on it? Or perhaps how Mike sleeps on it? Or a combination? Is it the bed frame or the box spring or something like that? Somehow it can't just be the mattress, because mattresses don't just die after less than five years. Especially when I notice it and Mike doesn't.

But really. It is all saggy.

It's getting worse, though. I convinced Mike to try flipping the mattress, even though the pillow top would be down. That was a disaster. We tried removing the box spring. Also not quite right, but at least the sag is less noticeable.

I just need a new mattress, I finally decided. Today in my research, I looked to see what kind of mattress we have. A Spring Air something-or-other. I looked up different kinds of mattresses, especially the latex kind, which I find especially appealing for their longevity. I don't want any more saggy problems for a while, you see. In the midst of my research I came across a compilation of owner reviews of mattresses. Curious, I looked up owner reviews of Spring Air mattresses.

Spring Air has the lowest owner reviews of any inner spring mattress. Due, in large part, to premature sagging.

At least I know I'm not crazy.
