    Anyone else have this problem? I need my covers to sleep but it's so hot and humid I can't have them on me without feeling like I'm suffocating... I won't be able to fall asleep until I'm completely exhausted usually 6-10 hours after I should of went to sleep near when I would like to wake up.

    Oh one of those nights I really, really wish I could do a couple shots. Boo

    I am not looking forward to summer, it's already been pushing 90° -._-.

    Yeah, I used to hold ice cubes on my wrists to cool my blood before bed, and rub cold water all over to evaporate.

    Blood cooling and Evaporative cooling works well.

    I found I just needed to be cool enough to drop off then I was ok.

    Well if this isn't the biggest coincident to ever happen. I too just got out of bed because it too hot. I just turned on the computer to entertain myself while the fan cools down my bedroom only to find this post.

    It's getting cold here now after a stinking hot summer.

    Well, cold is relative, but below 20c feels cold to me

    And you crossed two time-zones. Should've taken the train, it's three days(!)

    Cold? It's 24ºC in my bedroom (suburban Sydney) at the moment.

    This makes me laugh. Sometimes we're lucky here if it gets to 20C in the height of summer :tearsofjoy: It'll be 18C and men are out sunbathing with no tops on. I'm terrible with hot weather, but even when it's hot in the night I'm still wrapped up in my duvet...and then I wake up drenched.

    I hear you.

    It is good here. There's too many people everywhere but it easy to go somewhere quiet here.

    For now anyway.

    Are you Australian?

    What B vitamins are you deficient in?

    I have genetic B12 problem (mtrr), and pyroluria so low b6.

    I also need potassium, but not sure why yet.

    I buy from iherb very fast and cheap.

    I get major fatigue from drinking water if I don't keep my potassium high enough.

    Also palpitations.

    Took me 15 years to figure that out, and no doctor had a clue.

    I also have problems with too much glutamate so can't eat much of those at the moment at least.

    Working on that now.
