You Know You’re Cold When…

I always knew that I had trouble dealing with the cold. I’ve only recently begun to realize how much the cold truly does affect me.

Turns out when I'm cold...I'm COLD!

Turns out when I’m cold…I’m COLD!

Turns out I can’t go outside in winter for any length of time without my temperature severely dropping. The picture above was less than 15 minutes outside with a warm winter jacket. I’d been taking my temperature to see what the trend was. I drop down to 95 degrees Fahrenheit pretty frequently even when I’m in a heated environment. I had begun to think that maybe my thermometer was broken so I bought a new one (the white one in the bottom of the picture). I was really annoyed at first when my brand new thermometer read 92 degrees! I thought I bought a broken thermometer. So I tested it with the older one which read 93 degrees. I was shocked to see that my temperature truly was that low. Crazy.

My temperature also spikes up depending on what I’m doing. I’ve temped it as high as 101 before it dropped down to 97. I don’t think that is normal…

So now I have a new symptom to present to my doctor and a new thing to worry about. Guess I won’t be out playing for long periods of time in the snow huh?

Yup, I’m moving south…somewhere warmer..
