Are you left-handed? I'm left-handed, so I can see how that would be a problem trying to get a key to turn if it's hurting your wrist. I certainly have a lot more pain when it's cold. People wonder why I keep my apartment so warm, and really it's because it brings my pain level down to almost nothing. And the heat bill costs a lot less than prescription pain medicine, and it's better on my liver too! Besides, am I the only one who can usually breathe warmer air better than colder air? People think I'm weird because of that.
Oh nuts, the mice are back. Looks like I've got work to do. Why does this happen when I'm sick? Oh. Maybe I get sick because
this happens! I want an electromagnetic field that surrounds my house and detects whenever a mouse crosses a certain boundary, then zaps it with a directed discharge.
You mentioned me having pain in my left wrist. The funny thing is, I don't have any pain -- just weakness. I thought I might have some mild arthritis, but since I'm not having any pain, it makes me wonder what else it could be.
You're just like me. Call me strange, but I have the thermostat in my apartment set to 70 degrees. My sister hates this and complains about how hot my apartment is every time she visits because she's the kind of person who likes it cold. Not me -- I like to be warm and cozy.
I know what you mean about breathing cold air. I don't have asthma or respiratory allergies (although I have year round allergies to pollen, dust and mold), but I do have difficulty breathing in cold temperatures. For whatever reason, it makes me cough as if I have a bad cold. To get around this problem, I carry a pack of Halls with me whenever I travel outdoors during the winter months.
And yes, I'm a "lefty."
