couchtater, thank you for making this topic. :) I will be keeping my eye on it.
I'm allergic to cold so air conditioning isn't good for me either. Only if it's set to the higher 70's.
Allergic to cold and the sun.... Yep. Good times.
I have the opposite problem. I am heat sensitive. My house is kept cool (68 in the winter and about
70 in the summer). If I overheat, I will pass out or swell up, or just feel sick. One year, I did too much and suffered heat exhaustion (I was moving and it was about
July). I have learned over the years how to not overheat. In the winter, I usually wear clothes that button up and breathe (with a sleeveless or short sleeve shirt underneath it). I also *always* have my hair off my neck (I have long hair, so it is actually easier to keep it out of the way).
Right now, I feel like I can't win either way. I can protect myself from the heat and wear clothing that will expose me to the sun, or I can protect myself from the sun and wear clothing that will make me hot.
As I said, I will be watching this.
