Heat + Humidity = (

Jun 13, 2016 5:35 PM

I'm in GA and we reached 98-99 today with a heat index of 103. Add that to the humidity and it's sticky hot. My air was running non stop even though I bumped it up several degree notches. I had to stick my head outside to get my dogs attention to come in the house, two hours ago. I've had a headache ever since in my sinuses and behind the left eye socket. Ugh! 😰☀🌫. I hope everyone is staying safe in this weather! 🙂💕🙏🌼

I know the feeling I have to go out in the heat and it was taking me out. Headache dizzy light headed the whole nine. I started drinking Powerade when I go out and just before. It has helped as well as staying out of it as much as possible.

I'll have to remember the Powerade. I'm pretty sure I'm in a full fledged flare this morning, most likely because of sjogrens. Besides the headache I also started with stiff finger joints 2 days ago. The stiffness is now in every major joint and my hands feel like they'll break if I flex the fingers. I had insomnia for the most part last night, or waking constantly. Today my whole body aches, throbs, and feels heavy with exhaustion, and the muscles are crappy and tender to touch... fibromyalgia flare jumped on board. The heat has to be what triggered it all. 😥 This is one of those days I just want to pull the cover over my head & say "Ugh...go away!"

Hugs & prayers everyone else is having a fairly good day! 😔💕🙏🌼

Thanks AlwayZ & Invisiblepain! I'm so tired I can barely get out of the chair. Today is a rest completely day! I guess it's a good thing I paid bills yesterday. And I'm positive my hubby will be grocery shopping on his own tonight. I'm just hoping I'm better by Saturday, or I won't be able to make it to my dad's house. He will be 86 in 2 weeks, and due to upcoming appts this was going to be my visit time. 😔

I'm sorry Flappsy!! That sucks that you won't make it to your Dad's. My Dad will be 87 in July. I know that your Dad has declined in health and mental ability and I wish that you were able to go. I'll be praying for you all.{{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Thanks AlwayZ!! I'm trying to stay positive, but right now I feel like I was hit by a Mack truck. It didn't help my hubby huffed off to the store by himself because not up to it. He can get the stuff and be back home before I could get through the store... unless he runs into people and talks! Lol 😉
