    I tried to place this where it might be the most functional.
    Its sort of science... Sort of not?

    I am curious about lots of stuff...
    This post is about peoples body temperature with Autism or Asperger's.
    I was wondering if it might be a trait for us to have a lower temperatures?
    Or is it just one more of my weird quirks?

    My normal body temperature is lower than "normal"
    Its always 96.3 - 96.5.

    One more quirk... I hate hot weather "it sucks the life out of me."

    Not sure about my body temperature overall, but I know my hands and feet are typically cold. But I think this has more to do with my anxiety and tension in my body than anything else. I think being sensitive to temperatures may be common with those with ASD. I cannot sleep when it is too hot either. This is quite common though, I suspect.

    With fever being a symptom of Covid 19, this is something I am wondering about too.
    My wife claims my feet are always "unnaturally" cold, and I am comfortable in low temp environments.
    My body temp also seems to be around 35.6C (96F)
