Good evening y’all! I got so caught up with my rant earlier, I completely forgot today is the first day of summer. Although I think down here in the south, summer had already started a month ago! When you have warm temperatures in February, which was supposed to be winter, what can summer possibly hold for us? For the foreseeable further temperatures are going to be in the 90’s! These temperatures are nice if you are at the beach or have swimming pool, but on a normal day they can be torture!!! I think it is safe to say we are in for one HOT summer!
When you live with an illness such as Multiple Sclerosis, it is extremely important to stay as cool as possible. I have heard from numerous people that cooling vests can be very beneficial, so this year I am thinking I might need to give them a chance. Also, staying hydrated is vital to everyone’s health. When you simply go outside to your car, which is normally a short walk, you can be drenched before the air conditioning has a chance to work! I am lucky that normally when I leave the house for work it is early, so typically the sun has not had a chance to heat things up much, but my goodness when I leave in the afternoon it is insanely HOT! I try to let the a/c start working before I start my drive home so I do not get overheated and then feel faint. When I have to do the one thing I already dread doing, grocery shopping, I try to either go earlier in the day or after the sun goes down to avoid too much of the heat. Do y’all have any certain things you do to avoid the nasty heat? Honestly with the way I have already been feeling, I might be a little worried about the summer heat!
I hope y’all have a nice, relaxing and cool evening! Thank goodness it is almost Friday, which leads us to a two-day weekend! Even though I missed two days of work this week, I am still looking forward to two days away from waking up way too early for work! As always your comments are encouraged and appreciated. I do plan to do more posts about ways to handle the heat, so hopefully they will be helpful for y’all! As always, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love and comfort!
