It's why i got a recliner Jon. I was spending too much time on the bed so got a recliner... it's really great. Feet up and can lower the back when I'm really done in.... so sort of like a day bed. Much less time in the bedroom which can get a bit much.
Neighbour of mine got one for £45 on ebay, but she had to collect it (her daughter did). I bought a new, expensive memory foam one when I sold a flat couple of years ago... but was a good buy. The only problem is I don't find them very attractive so I keep a throw over mine which looks much better.
No other chair lives up to the comfort of a recliner and are great when you get bad fatigue (which is my major symptom).
