I am a LOT warmer now that I've learned new tips and advice from others:) A couple times I've "forgotten" to put my slippers on around the house, like when I get in from outdoors and take my warm boots off...I regret it in a few min when I start getting cold. It's getting easier with the circulation thing though, as I learn how to cope with it. At least now I can have a drink of juice or something and not FREEZE!:) Ah, the little things in life that can make a person happy.
When I saw my GP today, she suggested that if I got cold enough I could have some medication prescribed to
open up the vessel flow. Is anyone else taking something like that to keep them warmer? (I also had vasculitis happening in my toes). I think as long as I can manage with slippers, wool socks, etc, the better...who needs another med to add to the pile.
It is God that gives me the strength to carry on in the valleys of life and the wings to fly to the mountain tops
