Heating up

The warmer weather I’ve been dreading seems to have arrived. I used to like the occasional warm summers the UK experiences now and then but now I dread them.
I suffer from overheating/flushing for no reason whatsoever. Not too badly or all the time but enough for me to carry a fan with me all seasons or sit in the house in winter in a vest and shorts, heating off and my poor boyfriend with 10 layers on under a blanket and still cold! I can be sitting just earing cereal or at my desk quite still and be dripping. Just by doing nothing! So actually, thinking about it, yeah maybe I do suffer a bit badly…
Now the warmer weather is here I’m becoming more and more self conscious and am starting to not want to leave the house. When I’m heating up I sweat and it ain’t pretty! It also doesn’t help I’ve put on 2st since being diagnosed (I’m a comfort eater) so I’m stressing that now I’m just going to look like a fat bird who can’t deal with the heat even if it’s only mild out!
I don’t know where I was going with this. My mind track has completely gone but at least it’s out there and shared.

I feel your pain, @poptart1977 . I must admit, I don’t have the embarrassments that you seem to have. But if I’m out in the sun too long, then my energy levels disintegrate and my legs gain a couple of tons in weight. When I say “too long”, this can be as little as 15 minutes!

It happened in the sun yesterday! 😕
