I know exactly how you feel, the cold weather does the same thing to me. There are times when I get so cold that my whole body hurts. Here are a few things I do in order to survive.
In the morning I take a hot shower first thing or else it would take me 2 hours to get my body moving. In the winter I wear long underwear under my dress pants to work along with a long sleeve shirt and a heavy cardigan sweater or a sweater under my suit coat. This year I went out an bought a long down coat and it was the best money I have spent in years....lol. At home my house is warmer then most peoples and I still wear sweatsuits and long sleeves in the house. I know this is going to sound really strange but in the winter because I am so cold, my feet are usually like ice so now I go to bed with a hot water bottle filled with the hottest tap water for my feet (not very sexy but my husband likes the fact that I don't put my cold feet on him anymore...lol).
These are just a few things that I do in order to survive the winter. One more thing, everyday I wait with anticipation for the weatherman to say my 3 favorite words.....Hazy, Hot and Humid......lol. I hope some of this has helped.
