I would prefer to be someplace warm in the cold weather, but since that's not happening anytime soon, I dress in layers. I have on my socks, sneakers, jeans, tank top, cotton shirt and sweatshirt. My family, DH and 3 adult children like the house to be cooler. My DD wears shorts & t-shirt around the house. I shake just looking at her. lol! They all like a fan on them at night, I burrow under flannel sheets, thermal blanket and 2 quilts. My nose sticks out, barely, so I can breathe. As I write this, my hands are ice cold. The temp in my house is 70, it feels like 40's to me, but my body temp always runs low. If I sit on the sofa, I have the heating pad on and an afghan my DM made wrapped around me.
Every place I have ever worked, the other ppl were overheating, while I was freezing. They would wear a sweater and I would be bundled up like Nanook. I have cashiered in winter gloves. I hate winter, and we didn't even get there yet. Hope you're all comfortable tonight.
God bless. Alice.
Because of the strange sensations I get against my skin when I wear clothing, especially my legs, I would prefer to crank the heat to whatever temperature it is in the southern tip of hell and wear nothing. But because the thermostat doesn't go that high, I sit infront of the wood stove in about three layers. I still am cold a lot of the time, no matter what the room temp is. I drive my son nuts because he sweats like a pig when he comes to visit after work!
I have been keeping my heat steady at 70 degrees and it's working well for me. I had to play around with it because this is my first winter with fibro. I live in jeans and love cotton tops/sweaters. I would rather be in a warm home because that is where I spend most my time now that winter is here. Yesterday we had temps that we usually get in the month of January. Not a good sign of what is to come.
