i hear you summer is hell for me too now especially nowadays i feel summer is hotter than ever or maybe i never paid attention before when i was younger/before diagnosis but honestly, this year sees brutal and causes so much sadness that i can't do what i used to be able to do.

@slowdog you are not alone in this feeling. There are many others who can empathize with you. While, I am not in a wheelchair, I am very sensitive to heat. My family says my house is "cold" but for me it is perfect.
The heat can cause me to flare up in symptoms. Some years ago, when I would still maintain active, I had to monitor because even an increase in body temperature from exercise, I could feel the exacerbation in my neurologic symptoms.
I used to enjoy hot showers.

@slowdog Same here. I can rarely stand the heat most days and tend to stay inside now because of it, which causes me to miss out on a lot and that itself is sad since I am a mom of two wonderful children. I miss out on so much with them during the summer.
Ms has definetly changed my life.

I used to love summer and going to the beach. I hate it now. It has been so hot this summer I dont go outside unless I have to. How can staying in the house and out if the heat still make me feel so bad? This heat makes me feel like I’m dieing a slow death!

yeah we're all on the same boat with summers, although i don't recall summers being this hot! i stay indoors as much as i can get away with in the summer. or will just host gatherings in my backyard where i can go in and out as Iplease :)
