The heat and humidity really get me down. First of all, I sweat profusely and my face and body turn beet red, even when I haven't been in the sun. In fact, I never get in the sun. People frequently tell me, "Oh, you have such a bad sunburn." It's just the effects of the heat. Add to the equation the extra humidity we've had this summer, and I can hardly bear it. I stay inside at home in the a/c with a fan blowing on me most of the time. When I go out I always carry a cardboard fan in my bag because I find that even in an air conditioned store or restaurant I prespire and have to pull out my fan. It can be embarassing because I don't like to bring attention to myself, but otherwise I'm wiping perspiration off my face. And when the humidity and heat are too bad, I feel as though I were going to faint. I just hate it and can't wait for fall and summer.
