I'm trying to convince myself I don't hate the acupressure mat (and accompanying pillow) that I ordered from Amazon. I'm trying to convince myself that I'll eventually agree with the rave reviews these things get, that no, the 8,000-plus little plastic spikes not only stop hurting but actually transport me into such a relaxed state that I'll be ready to fall asleep immediately. The reviewers urge new users not to give up and discount the benefits too soon, and I guess after three uses, I shouldn't be ready to throw in the towel or the mat, right? Meanwhile: Ouch, etc.
