It's Hot

It's hot here in South East Queensland.  The Wet has arrived, so it's hot and humid.

I don't do well in the hot weather. (I don't do well in the cold weather either, but I'll complain about that mid-year.)

I have an air conditioner, but only in the living area of the house, and the really hot days can be more than the air con can cope with.

Heat makes me fatigued.  Lupus fatigue is tired times a thousand. Every part of me feels tired, even breathing is exhausting.

The air conditioning doesn't reach my bedroom, and sometimes the fan just doesn't make enough difference for me to be able to sleep, so I just lie in the heat, getting more and more tired.

I had a brainwave the night before last.  I picked up my pillow and moved to the couch to sleep under the air conditioner.  It was the best night's sleep I'd had all summer.

A good sleep is a great help.  I still feel fatigued, but I feel like I can survive it.

So if you're looking for me, I'm spending the rest of the summer right beside the air conditioner.
