Usually cold just makes my joints hurt - it's the heat of summer that normally causes me terrible fatigue.
But this winter, I'm feeling the cold in a different way. No matter how many blankets I put on the bed, no matter how many layers I wear, I feel cold on the inside. I feel like the cold is deep down in my bones - and nothing I do at the outside is warming up the inside.
I'm also feeling cold at the extremities - fingers and toes sometimes lose feeling or even change colour.
For those of you who actually live in a cold climate, you would probably think our winters here are very mild.. It's unusual for it to get down to 0 deg C overnight. During the day, we're up to the low 20s, which is not much colder than I set my air conditioner to in summer.
Yet, here I am, wrapped in as many layers as possible, and still feeling that my bones are so cold they're aching. My joints are feeling hurting - not seriously, but every one of them is hurting a little.
