Does anyone else find they get hot way too fast and it seems to make you not able to do much??? Everyone thinks I'm lazy. I just feel sometimes like I'm about to drop dead...

Hello Amity- you're not being lazy at all! I get overheated very easily myself and unfortunately, tend to be a hermit in this hot weather. I avoid outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day. For example, I walk my dog first thing in the morning and evening hours when the sun is less brutal. If I have any cooking to do, that gets done in the morning as well. Unless of course I enlist my husband! He's usually accommodating and is a great help when I feel useless. I also have a cooling vest outfitted with ice packs that I wear which seems to help. The good news is this heat won't last forever and with any luck, the temps will start cooling down. I think it's been a rough summer at least for all of us in the states.

A couple of weeks ago it was murder for me, so so tired and sluggish that I mostly went out for short times and cooled off, repeat. Slept a lot, but kept drinking water and doing what I could get done. I went into the dollar general and had to have the girl bring me the house wheelchair, because my legs were getting to be like...on fire lol... I asked for assistance at my car, to hold the chair while I got my ass in there and wouldn't you know it, a previous, embarrassing purchase lays there in plain view lol.

What a shitty day, hot, humid and it whipped my ass.
