Coupled with the high heat, makes for atrocious weather, and leaves me little chance of writing anything of worth.

By the time it cools enough to safely run the pc, I’m either wiped out from the humidity/heat combination, or have a killer heat headache that makes my eyes water. Either way it largely cuts into my writing time.

I can’t wait for summer to end! Even lugging wood to burn for heat is better then having my energy sapped on a daily basis.

Unfortunately even the inspirational quotes aren’t helping.  I feel draggy and more often than not, completely exhausted before evening. Afternoon napping isn’t an option either, since it’s too humid and hot to sleep.

I just don’t get it. I grew up on the beaches in Texas and California for crying out loud, and the heat and humidity never bothered me. So why now? It’s like ever since I had my second child I cannot stand the humidity and heat combos.  Did my system change that much? Or is it the increased weather changes?

I’m constantly drinking water. Seriously I have a cup that stays by me and is always refilled. I’ve been dehydrated before and I make certain not to let that happen ever again. I’m not diabetic, I’m not ill. But it’s as if I’m constantly bordering on heat exhaustion anymore.  Why is this happening?

As if the hot flashes and night sweats weren’t bad enough already, now I have to deal with this? I’ll turn 34 this year and have been through this for at least ten years now. but this year it’s really acting up.

What do you think?  Have any of you mothers out there noticed similar changes after giving birth, or is it just me?
