Ever since I was little I always like, and slept better when I had pressure on my legs and feet as I slept. When I was younger I would take and extra pillow or two and place them on my feet. I liked it. I still do that every once and a while.
I was thinking about looking into getting one but here is my predicament.
I know that these types of sensory objects, in this case Weighted Blankets are used in Special Education, for Autistic children or what have you. That doesn't apply to me, I just am a very sensory oriented person. Now, My girlfriend is a EEE, Special Educator Preschool teacher and she uses weighted Lap pads and such for a child or two sometimes. The few times I brought up the conversation, not just this one, I don't know. Maybe she feels weird about it or something because she works with children with needs that use the same. Its the same thing with the whole fact that I'm ABDL and I like to wear diapers. She sometimes has a hard time because she works with kids everyday who, some not all, are still in diapers, many because they have a need for them.
I don't know how to pursue the subject. She thinks I bring it up because of this site and I heard about them from here and its connected to being ABDL, but honestly its not really. What do you guys think? suggestions about how I could talk to her about it.. I am thinking of taking an extra blanked and folding it over my feet/legs tonight. I just don't want to her feel weird or awkward.
PS: Not sure where I should have posted this, so I hope this is an okay spot. I chose what I thought was best fit.
