Fibro & Temperature

Fibro & Temperature

My kid & I keep fighting about the temperature of our house... because I'm always in pain & can't make it down to the thermostat, they keep changing the temp so I'm always cold... I've got 6 blankets on my bed, blankets downstairs, jackets everywhere... HELP!

I put a small towel down my bedroom air vent and keep the door closed and the windows open, so at least I have one room that isn’t freezing cold during the summer.

How old are your kids? I would tell them this is my house and the thermostat stays where I put it. I’m am cold most of the time, if I’m not cold, I’m sweating 😥

Thats a tough one. Kids get hot easily and like to keep cool. Are they old enough to understand that you are predisposed to feeling cold bc of FMS? Perhaps you can reach a mutual temp acceptable to all, not too warm, not too cold ?

When Im symptomatic I’m especially sensitive to cold, even get chills. On those days i have to keep extra warm.

Hang in there. And do your best to stay comfortable.
God’s peace,

Depending on the age of your kids. If the house belongs to you, that thermostat should stay where YOU put it. They can always wear shorts put on a fan, open the window closest to them. The fact that their even messing with your health your comfort in the first place is disrespectful and appalling. I'm sorry for your plight.
