That's as close as I could find to a cooking emoticon. LOl It's funny becuase I don't really sewat that much I just cook. I'm kinda like a lobster or crab or something I just turn bright red all over. Face arms, legs, everything just turns red and I turn a billion degrees with no way of cooling down. I can come in and take an ice cold shower, get out and I'm still hot. It takes forever to get my temp back down again. I stay red until well into the next day. It's kinda funny to about
the shellfish thing, becuase I'm sooooo allergic to them. My husband ate mussels at a party came over and kissed me without washing his face and my lips started to get numb and tingly, and last night we got Chinese food, order pork egg food young, pretty safe, no shellfish, well, they over did the MSG and must have cooked shellfish in the same pan becuase I had the same lip reaction, throat started to get tight, my tongue strated to swell up, thank God I had liquid Benedryl (it works faster then pills), so I didn't have to make an er trip. But that's a little bit off topic, sorry. about
the heat thing, I am a bit different from the rest of you. Like I said I just cook, and if I cook to long, I get major migraines that for about
2-3 days, but that was last summer. This summer I am armed!! I have New glasses ordered to help with the glares, and I think I'm going to order the cooling bandanas. I have major UVA/UVB sunblock 70, getting a UVA/UVB umbrella, a misting fan, I have both Imitrex and zomig when the bad migraines hit and Topomax to keep them at bay, so hopefully they won't hit at all. So let's hope this summer will be better then last. Of course being on MTX and pred and possibly having Lupus means I have no business spending much time in the sun anyway, but just in case I have to be in it a litlle, I 'm ready. I think.
