I am a 55+ woman with all sorts of problems and on top being anxiety then trouble sleeping. Well after doing a lot of research for myself I received an email talking about the weighted blanket used not only for autism but also quite a few other things.
After a few days I decided to go for it and I went for a 15 pound cotton blanket which is a very soft but also weighted just for me. As soon as I wrapped myself up in it I was content and now I can not sleep without it.
Now, mind you I live in the East Coast and the weather has been brutal but no matter what even if it's just a corner I have to have my blanket.....my granddaughter tried to talk me into borrowing it and I knew I would never see it and NO was all that came out of my mouth.
I love, love and love my blanket and it's made with great quality. Check one out, the stitching is incredible and yes my blanket is a bit weighted I can't be without it.
