it's a 100 degrees out but you have the air on 80 cause that is your comfort zone when just sitting but your dogs are panting and when the air does come on they both find a vent to lay on for relief. tongue
 
I know as soon as DH gets home the air will be going down and I'll be freezing. I don't know why but when I am in pain I get cold.
 
There was something I did dumb today I was going to tell all of you but now I forget what it was.

I am with you completely on this one. I HATE being cold. It is like an instant pain causer to me. And everywhere you go, restaurants, stores... it is always terrible. I never leave the house without a jacket, even in the dead of summer.

Lucky for me, my husband and Ileave the air off at home until we just can't stand it. I love it because I stay warm, and he loves it because we save money. We always open all the windows...and it feels good.

I really think we fibromites do better when warm, but not burning up. I always feel best when I am at just the right temperature for me.

I LOVE that you wrote about wanting to tell us something but forgetting!! turn   It's great to have fellow "forgetful buddies".

I have to have the air on all summer - the humid weather makes it so I can barely move. I don't have it super cold though, because that bothers me too. Here in MI, it decided to get very humid today...it's the first time I put the air on this year.

Nope, I have the air on set at 72 all year long. I have to stay cool. My fibro doesn't hurt with cool air, just the rain. Isn't it funny how we are all different??

Now there are times, that for some reason, my feet will get cold and then they do hurt then, so I put on socks and I am OK. I hate the heat. It was 106 degrees out today.

Have a lpd. Hugs to all.

I prefer 65*-70*, and not humid. But because hubby's external fixator metal gets cold and hurts, my AC is set at 77* and every time I turn around, he's turning it off! LOL If I get hot, I'm heaving up my toe nails and if I get cold, I'm in pain.
And completely off topic, but as it just happened, don't you just HATE it when a large capsule goes down cock-eyed? LOL

My ex husband put this metal grate-thing over the thermostat because I was always turning it up.  I didn't know I had fibro then and my kids always comment on pictures of me when they were little, draped in a blanket or wearing a coat in the summer time.  Ex husbands...that's why they are ex.  Moron...

I actually am always hot. I have wicked heat sensitivity. I am always sleeping with a fan, and having it on during random parts of the day. Cold doesn't bother me as much, except for when it is freezing, and of course the rain bothers me. And I agree with Lindaloo, it's funny how we are all different!

What are speedknits WhiteChocChips???  It is 86 degrees and since we are having company, well the kids, DH turned the air down to 50 I think, at least it feels like it to me. I will be spending my time outside but my body doesn't like the heat and humidity either. I always have a jacket with me. The frozen food section at grocery stores are terrible and it doesn't matter what the temp is outside.
 
We are a strange lot.

I am always cold too. As a kid I would always laugh at my Grandmother who would not leave the house without her RED jacket. Well now I don't leave the house without my jacket either. I hate being cold. DH leaves for work early and I don't turn the air on until just about time for him to come home..LOL

It's in the 100's here.  I turn the air on when it gets 86 inside.  I set the air at 83-85.  Plenty comfortable for me.  I ALWAYS take a jacket with me when I go out.  When I go to the gym I have to keep a jacket with me.  After I'm all hot and sweaty from the elliptical machine I go into the quiet yoga room to do my stretching/yoga.  It's like a refrigerator in there.  My hands turn purple(of course that's the Raynauds).  I watch people working out in their little halter tops brrrrrrr. rolleyes

I go from one extreme to the other. Much of the winter I'm dressed in layers in my house, all the while my DD is in shorts and a Tee. Sometimes I get so cold I start to shake and I have to lay down on my beloved heating pad turned on HIGH w/ my afghan over me before I feel warm. I always bring a jacket to the grocery store and when I could go to the movies I always brought a sweater or jacket, never wore shorts or flip flops. Brrr.  I have my gloves on when I go out in the winter.

Come summer I get over heated ( not this yr so far shakehead ) I feel like I am smothering in my clothes. I can only wear my flops in the house, I need sneakers on for balance, so I need socks. I feel like I can't breathe w/ socks on. Yeah, I know it sounds stupid to me, too. Yesterday, we hit 70 - WOW, 1 whole day in a row. It has rained 19 days out of 20 so far and the temp is hard pressed to reach 60 much of the time. I'm starting to mold, as we speak.

Earlier this wk in a town in the northern part of our state they had about a ft of hail. They showed ppl shoveling it in their shorts and boots. Weird sight.

God bless.  Alice.

Your 18 year old son tells you "Mom you can't walk on the treadmill unless
someone is home with you."

"Mom you can't get in the pool unless
someone is home with you."

and you sleep until noon and have to get woken up my the 18 year old.

Or when your 4 y/o watches a Weeble Wobble commercial and says "Mommy that's just like you, cept you fall down" and then proceeds to count the bruises on your legs and asks if you have any on your butt as you fall on it oh so often LOL

You know you have fibro when... After a long hard day of work all you can think about when you pull up to your house is going inside to relax, but you dont want to get out of the car becuase you just remembered how much it hurt getting in it in the first place...

I am always hot! I cant stand being hot, it makes me a very miserable person. My AC is set on 68 and does not go higher. In the winter and when we get rain I tend to hurt more, but I just hate being hot...

I am like Irish Babe. I need climate control assistance year round. Either it is too cold or to hot for me. However, cold rain hurts.

When you talk for five minutes on the phone to someone you think is your son and it's one of your husband's students. Geez...he didn't want to mow my lawn.

 you would really love to go away for a long weekend with your hubby but the thought of getting ready, packing and making arrangements for the dogs makes you too tired to do anything. If only I could twitch my nose or nod my head and everything would be done. Guess we will stay home this weekend.
 
I hope you were talking to the boy on the phone and not face to face Donna or you have bigger problems than fibro. devil
