If you can afford it, buy yourself a new bed!
Do you have any restrictions? Maybe get someone to spend a couple of days at your house.
A TIA is a transient ischemic attack - a mini-stroke or sometimes a warning of a bigger stroke that is coming. That is what happened last year, so I'm in a high risk time period right now. A TIA really IS a stroke but the symptoms typically last a couple hours (max) instead of days and weeks and sometimes months with bigger strokes.

A new bed? Yeah - that would be a hospital bed with guard rails and a nurse call light and the massage thing in the center of the mattress and even the leg compression bags that were so soothing. And a backrub to go with it!! Probably about $15,000 or therabouts! Probably not. But a nice memory.

I canít be overdrawn. I still have some checks!!
