When I wake up feeling terribly overheated its a lot like I woke up in a sizzling box yoga class. There are basically 2 questions that cross my mind: am I dying or is my temperature control dying? Overheating constantly makes me feel uncomfortably close to death’s door–I do not deal well with it at all. It always makes me nauseous & drained, kind of like I’ve developed a case of the flu with no symptoms before hand. These at least usually clue me in to take vitamins & kill it before it totally takes hold of me. I entirely cannot usually tell heat exhaustion from terrible illness. I constantly have to pull myself out of bed, & since I live by myself there’s no roommate to text to check the temperature control for me. This is easily also why the temperature control dies often, because I have nobody else to remind me to change it & take care of it before it entirely goes out on me again. See, programmable temperature controls are entirely cool, until you realize you need to change the batteries. But before I get into that, I have to take care of me first. So I take my anti-nausea meds & have a cool shower–occasionally I even take the pills in the shower when I’m feeling dead, and as soon as I’m in my comfiest workout clothes, I get up & pull myself to the junk drawer for the new batteries. Then go in the residing room to the temperature control. Sure enough, the screen is pretty much always blank, which means the temperature control is once again offline. It’s not even broke, it’s just the cheap batteries I get have died. It doesn’t take long to change them & get the Heating & A/C machine back online again. I swear, I don’t know really if I should get higher quality batteries, or a better programmable temperature control.
