In my previous life I never liked the heat of summer. Once I could manage it I got a car and house with air conditioning. Lucky me.

But beginning last summer the A/C was suddenly too cold. When I'd return home from someplace, my place would feel too warm. But as soon as the A/C kicks on I dive for a blanket. I can't get it adjusted to the right temp.

Worse is my car. Recently the low speed motor in the air system busted. Now all I have is High and Off. I can never get the air right.

A few weeks ago I drove across three states to go visit the folks. It is a good thing no one was with me. Every five minutes it was turn the A/C on, begin to freeze, turn it off. Then the sun would warm the car, so back on with the A/C. Minutes later, off again. Then on again. Off again. On again. Off. On. Off. On. Off. For 500 miles. I was driving myself crazy!

Can't wait for winter.
Don't let the muggles get you down.

Due disclosure:

While many many women are affected by Hashimotos, a few guys are too!

So, my advice or comments or concerns and experiences come from a male perspective. (I'm a real boy, at least after I got to a decent dose of levo and the hair on legs and arms came back).
