Is Anyone Else Tired Of Being Freezing?

Recommended Posts

Guest mvaught

I'm always cold too - and I live in South Florida where it is never actually cold. I also get hot at night as long as i don't get out of bed, but if when i get up for the bathroom at night, it takes me a while to get warm again.

I do have hypothyroidism, but my dosage seems fine (by the way any of you that suspect that you have it and get a neg. on bloodwork - try a different doctor. i'm am and have always been thin, so i have actually had an endocrinologist take me off of it and refuse to put me back on it because the blood work didn't match up, but i also didn't even have energy to scratch an itch much less get out of bed...that was when i was 18 - i found a new doctor that put me back on the dosage of synthroid i was originally on and felt fine again after only one week - bicycling and everything. i'm 30 and still on the same dosage - have to convince every new doctor i see that what i need is what i have...bloodwork, as i am SURE many of us know often is screwy).

Anyway, i'm currently shivering in a long sleeved shirt and sweater and it is 70 degrees here now! i feel for those of you in colder places- ouch! (i'm terrified of moving even as far north as Orlando)! brrrr.

I could have sworn I replied to this post... huh. Anyway, you might also consider getting a humidifier, if you run the heater a lot, as low humidity makes it feel much colder than it is, and heaters dramatically decrease the humidity in your house. Here in Seattle, it's 90% humidity outside (when it's raining) so far this winter, but 33% inside unless I crank up a humidifier. and at 33% humidity, 70F is pretty chilly for me.

Not only do some of those crazy people where shorts but you see them outside in just t-shirts. A lot of those are the teenage boys who think they show machismo running around in -40 with no clothes on to speak of. I used to tell them when I was driving the bus that ,they may think they look cool, but pneumonia is for everyone and definitely not a cool thing to have.

lol

I know! I also see people wearing t-shirts or just sweaters in extreme cold weather. One thing that I don't understand are the girls who dress all fashionable, like super thin winter coats, skin tight jeans, high heal boots, ect..., when it is about -30 outside with the windchill. I'd probably be cold in those outfits in the fall when it's +10.
