Yes it is!  I love the cooler weather seasons.  I don't tolerate heat well.  Even my mother who's moved to a warmer climate laments not experiencing the change of seasons and the cool crisp air here in the Northeast.

cassie. Beware, you will be called a Liberal. ;D

Oh, I've been called plenty worse.


Isn’t it great that we all love different weather? And there is a place for us all on earth where we thrive. :)

You know, I'm totally willing to endure the 100+ summers for those fantastic winters that are in the 70s. Match that with the sea breeze rolling in, and I love it here.

Fortunately, we seldom see snow around here. But, it does get cold enough. And I know when the cold is on it's way. Getting old has given me a painful barometer called rhuematism. Warning for the younger generations: it's genetic. If your parents or grandparents got it, so will you.

It can sometimes be a pain getting cold weather gear. Most places only sell parkas, hats, and gloves as if Texas is part of Hawaii. Global climate change has not made it that warm in the winters yet.

My parent likes to keep it at 68 degrees at home. I'd prefer 70, but most of the time I'm ok with a few degrees below that. I like the cold more than the heat. I can at least layer up if I'm too cold, but in the heat...there's no escape. I'm actually numb to temperature half the time. In most places like restaurants or malls, I don't notice it unless it's at either extremes.

I want a pair of fleece lined tights.
I'm a man. I like being a man. I also love wearing women's clothing. It's my way to show honor, respect and solidarity with them.

I moved from NW Wisconsin to SW Florida.  My goal was to never ever have cold feet again.  It was 88 today, no cold feet for me!

I mentioned this to my Endo last week and there's actually a medical diagnoses code for this, as he diagnosed me with this after I mentioned him that I can't stand the cold as I used to do. Being on E hormones and having feminine T levels , welcome to womanhood

At work my coworkers still run the AC, even though its around and tonight below freezing. I get in at work and turn on the heat to 72F. (22C) At  home my heat is set to about 80F. (26C)

PS.

What is ICD 10 code for postmenopausal?

Menopausal and female climacteric states N95.1 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. The 2018 edition of ICD-10-CM N95.1 became effective on October 1, 2017.

I think HRT does change the ability to take the cold.  I am shivering cold even with the thermostat cranked up.  Glad we had a dog who is a 4 legged heater.   Probably should be spending more time snuggled up with my spouse...
