    She tucked the covers in at the bottom of the bed.

    "Does that keep your feet still?"

    I thought for a while.

    "No. It's too stressful."

    I could feel the stress building up, not being able to move my feet and legs all about. The feet need to have the freedom to go beyond the end of the bed.

    Do any of you tuck the sheets in at the bottom of your bed?

    How do you live with yourselves?

    I tuck the sheets in, my boyfriend kicks them loose. It’s our daily ritual.

    It is really popular with the younger set, where it is known as "swaddling."

    I can't stand it. I'm short so you think it wouldn't be a problem, but I also need to be able to move my feet past the foot of the bed. Tucking is way too confining. Just like heavy winter coats.

    I agree with Pats, except, I’m not short.

    No.

    I don't have sheets on my bed.

    I don't like the feeling of being in an envelope.

    I sleep on top of the sheets with no blanket most of the time.

    When I'm laying in bed, I absolutely can't keep myself from rubbing my feet together or against the mattress.

    I feel it's really unnatural to not constantly move my feet and legs while I'm sitting or laying down. I feel some inner discomfort, similar to an itch but it's not quite that. It gets bad if I'm still for longer than 10 seconds.

    I don't like being constricted or over warm. Do a lot of stimming/flapping in bed. And its already crowded enough with my wife and the 4 Chihuahuas playing the dog version of Game of Thrones every night.

    I hate being tucked in. It gives me a feeling akin to claustrophobia, and I feel like kicking myself free.

    What are you trying to do, suffocate me?!

    I like the look of tucked in sheets, but it just isn't worth it. I kick them out every time. So I just drape it out neatly and evenly when I make my bed.

    None. Mob boss Peanut (who's also the smallest) would scream at it incessantly, Master Thief Molly would steal it's food, Brainless Penny would eat it's poop and Neurotic Momo would have a year long meltdown.

    What? You don’t tuck in your sheets? How do the sheets stay on the bed?! :p

    I’m very much a tucker-inner, and yet I also stim a lot by moving my feet against the sheets repetitively, which I’ve done since childhood. But I’m short so my feet don’t go anywhere near the end of the bed. Plus, that’s where the cats sleep. :D

    The sheet, when used, is tucked for aesthetic purposes (I love a well dressed bed :)) but then the bed gets 'unmade/untucked'. Leaving the sheet tucked makes me feel trapped!
