I have to have at least 2 ... depending on how firm they are.
If my head isn't elevated enough, I can't sleep.
I have serious health issues with my neck, so I have to do with one. Any more than that and my nerves are going to dislike me. Even with one pillow, sometimes my hands aren't working properly for hours, causing trembling, but that's why stretching and using different agents have been invented. And no, it's not alcohol related, it's simply nerve connections going off a bit.
zonkey have you tried car or travel type pillows in bed? I found those helped me if I had a stiff or twisted neck. Feel better buddy
One for my head plus a body pillow.
Two pillows, though my head only rests on one.
Three. Back at home I have four, sometimes five. I like feeling surrounded when I'm sleeping.
"I like feeling surrounded when I'm sleeping." - When you put it that way, it sounds like it should be a bit scary, actually...
Surrounded by fluffy pillows, or blankets. Not people!
I was told pillows give you a double chin when I was a kid, so most of my life no pillow, very skinny neck now so I have a bit of a pillow, especially when reading in bed.
