 :)  I was just looking through a cataloge that had some pillows in it.

  They didn't look very helpful but I had a round one about a foot long. It could fit in the neck area and kept your head from being pushed up. I sure wish I had one now.

  I must of used mine for 15 yrs. You forget how much things help till you quit using them. I have a very small pillow now but the round one is much better.             Ron

I have three actually one is about 3 or 4 inches around and the others are 6" or so around one is made of that memory foam stuff and one is just off of a couch set. They are all about a foot and a half long and I could not imagine life without them especially when Dad is driving me to San Antonio in the truck.

Hope you find one soon rwilli

Ron, I have purchased the round pillows at J C Penny. I wait until they have a half off sale or buy one get one free. The last one I got was covered for a sofa or chair I guess but it works great.

I am ALWAYS on the lookout for a good pillow for my neck & head. I've got at least 2 or 3 of these round ones -- different types (memory foam, other types, some sort of beady sort of filling, etc. ... any of them I can find frankly) ... and then another one that.. is kinda hard to describe. Think it must've been made specifically for some furniture set or some such. It's 2-3' long and not exactly round but not flat. It's kinda cool.

All types of pillows / shapes / sizes. I even use most of them -- different ones on different days depending on how my body's feeling...  :spider:

Used to have a really great neck one my chiropractor recommended. Best one I've ever had actually. IT fit my head & neck. Was great. Haven't seen a chiro in long time though... and the dog chewed it up (really).

But my all-time favorite?



Now don't laugh (LOL)






Teddy Graham.

:lmao:


It's some character  --  like for some sort of graham crackers or something related to kids... or a maybe food "mascot." I can't remember it now... Regardless...

Seriously. I use it for a neck pillow if we go anywhere & sometimes here at the house too... I LOVE my Teddy Graham pillow.  :1115:

In fact, I fell asleep in my recliner yesterday or day before (the last time I slept -- whenever THAT was) and the last thing I remember thinking before I fell asleep? ROTFL  :laughing1:


That I needed to draw a pattern from the pillow (like you would a wood pattern) and try to make another one (not that I'm like a great seamstress or anything... me & sewing machines do NOT get along... really.) in the same shape because this one is getting old I've had it so long and have "lost" it a time or two. And THAT was just plain sad...

 :)   That reminded me reading about one in the car. I used a small pillow in the car for years. Only way I could drive for any distance.

  I needed speed control and tilt wheel (lower the steering wheel, so I didn't have to hold my arms up) also. With all three I could drive quit awhile after the fascia ripped in my lower back.  Just keep looking for anything that helps a little. They will add up.    Ron

The only round pillows I have ever used were quite large around and very soft with a hole in the middle.  ;)

It wasn' for my neck or head either.  :lmao:  Don't know what happened to it, but I haven't seen it for a few years.  :(

I even tried the hole in the middle kind to ease some of the pain in the lumbar.

It DID NOT help either.
