Dear Santa Hibernation is my Christmas Wish

Sunday, November 25, 2012

The start of this cold weather is more than I can stand. Do to a medical condition I am cold all the time. It feels like my bones are made of ice and the new med dont seem to be helping. With no circulation my temperature is low and so is my pulse. I just want to find a place to go to sleep, so hibernation sounds like the right thing for me. My water bottle has been replaced with a travel mug with warm water, my salad replaced with soup or oat meal. The pounds wont come off with me awake, and I haven't found a way to eat in my sleep so by spring I would be at my goal weight. Moving down south is not an option, some thing or someone always comes along and plans change.

Thank you

P.S. NO one would ever wake up a sleeping bear.

    Sandy, I'm so sorry that this time of year causes you stress. I suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder), and my stress comes from the shortened days and little sunshine.

    Have you tried electric blankets or mattress pads? I have an electric mattress pad which I turn on about 1/2 hour before I crawl into bed. I sleep toasty warm. Otherwise, I'd be huddled into a freezing human ball.

    Your change of foods and liquids sounds like a good start. I figure if I'm warm on the inside, I may be warm on the outside.

    Do you keep your house at a warm temperature? Do you wear long underwear? Good luck keeping warm! emoticon
