I hate the cold weather

Nov 07, 2015 11:16 PM

My pain is getting worse and no doctors know what else to do and I just can't take much more I want to move to some where it is warm any suggestion?

Florida didn't help me any!! It way way too hot and humid. The cold weather here in NY kills me. There isn't too many weather cycles that last long enough that it's not a detriment to how I feel. Wish I had better news.

North Carolina or Virginia 😊. The Outer Banks are amazing, and Charlotte is nice. Norfolk and Richmond are beautiful.

I hate the cold weather too. I also have seasonal affective disorder so this time of year is miserable for me. I live in Arizona but I still am affected by the cold. At least it doesn't snow much here. I am sorry you are dealing with this increased pain. I have been living under my electric blanket when I can.

I have friends in Charleston. They are about 15 minutes from the Outer Banks

I live in mass I am 27 and with the weather constantly changing I seem to hate all season at a certain point! Spring is miserable cause it rains and the pressure can make me want to roll into bed and screw the rest winter the cold feels like it's crippling me internally summer the humidity can get to me at times and in and out of the air conditioner isn't helpful fall is usually my ahh I can breath season except this year the rain has just not let up!! Hang in their ladies we are all strong enough ! I try and just keep saying mind over matter it's the only thing that keeps me going or else I fall for days at a time not good for a mother of two!

Wishfulthinking, are you in Eastern or Western Mass?? I'm going to the Berkshires this week and can't wait.

I say every year that I just can't take another winter, and yet I survive another Canadian winter. I must admit it is beautiful.

I too, hate the cold weather, and where do I live? North Dakota. My husband and I have been thinking of moving somewhere a bit warmer. The thought of Colorado often comes up. Any thoughts?

Nov 09, 2015 10:58 AM

Hate cold weather too. ..I live in Iowa...not sure Colorado myself. ..does it get cold?.

Nov 09, 2015 11:00 AM

That's what I'm trying to find out, I guess, from anyone who lives there or visited there.

Nov 09, 2015 11:06 AM

I would like to live. ..in the 70-80 temperature. ..thinking that would be perfect. ..

Nov 09, 2015 11:14 AM

Yep me too, now...I wonder where that would be?

Nov 09, 2015 12:02 PM

Yes I agree. ..California? ....don't really want to move there. ..lol....

Nov 09, 2015 12:32 PM

Me either, I heard Colorado is nice, but I really don't know for sure. Tell you what, hollymarie, if you find a place with high in the 70's and low 80's year round you let me know, and I will let you know what I come up with. (Aw, we can always dream anyway, right?)

Nov 09, 2015 12:35 PM

Yes so true. ...dreaming is good. ..probably the only normal there is. ..lmao. ....let me know when you know the climate Colorado. ....just want to visit. ....

Nov 09, 2015 1:55 PM

Was thinking that too. ..love Hawaii. ..agree

Nov 09, 2015 2:17 PM

East Texas or South Texas. We hardly ever have snow in East Texas, I live in Lufkin which is in East Texas.So far it has gotten in the 40's in morning by afternoon it is in the 70's. It usually doesn't get really cold until January.

Nov 09, 2015 2:33 PM

Do you still have lots of pain. ..weezie. ..how you feeling today. ...not having a good day here. ....

Nov 09, 2015 2:40 PM

Holly Marie my pain level hasn't changed to much daytoday. The only difference is if it is going to rain then my pain level in my lower back is worse than normal. Does that make since. I always wake up with neck pain that radiates all the way down to my tailbone. Today is the first cold morning in the 40's. I didn't notice any increase in my pain level. I hope this helps.

Nov 09, 2015 2:45 PM

I am having shoulder..neck pain today. ..migraine finally gone ... it's my day off. ....still in jammies. ..hardly get dressed. .. rest of week uniforms. ...come home jammies. ...sorry you hurt too. ..just need someone to talk to. ...just feel lonely

Nov 09, 2015 2:48 PM

Been around 55 during day 32 mornings. ...this is nice for Iowa. .lol

Nov 09, 2015 2:50 PM

Hollymarie I'm sorry you are in so much pain today. I don't blame you still being in your jammies, if I don't have to go somewhere I never get dressed I stay in my jammies all the time. Do you normally have neck and shoulder pain? My neck shoulders and all the way down my back to my tail bone hurts 24-7.

Nov 09, 2015 3:00 PM

Ameen to wearing jammies all day!

Nov 09, 2015 3:30 PM

Yep, been in pjs all day myself. Been that kind of day. It's getting ready to rain here, I can feel it before it even starts.

Nov 09, 2015 3:40 PM

Thanks sister weezie amanda ..my friends can't understand the jammies thing. ...I tell them I wish I didn't have this. ...just makes me feel not alone. ...I wake up every morning with neck shoulder pain and a lot of times my arms and legs feel like thousand pounds. ....and yes when it's going to rain. ..Oh boy

Nov 09, 2015 4:23 PM

Yep, my hips, ankles and low back are all joining in right now.

Nov 09, 2015 4:31 PM

Man it sucks. ..sorry. ..couple of hours can take my last 8 pills. ...can't wait. .lol...then back to work tomorrow. ..taking vacation beginning Thursday after work. ..hope tomorrow will be a good day for you

Nov 09, 2015 6:16 PM

My migraine still here pain getting worse temp going down so up comes the pain I feel like I could go to bed but I don't think that would be because I would be up when husband would just be going to bed. I can only sleep 4 to 5 hours at a time. Thank you all for all the good advice.

Jnutsch, I live in central GA. We have cool weather in the winter mostly. We rarely have cold weather, although this winter is predicted to be both colder and wetter. Most winters people wear light weight jackets or sweaters. Having visited CA before, If day southern CA, FL, and southern TX would be good places (in the winter). 🙏🌼
