can i ask how people are coping in this heat and are there any tips on how to get cool im not coping very well right now i dont think ive slept for days
Hi mojoxjojo. I've just replied to your other post. On this one I can only say we don't. Shut your curtains/blinds during the day to prevent the heat build-up. We bought a fan but it only seems to push round hot air! I frequently wrap a soaked cold tea towels around my wrists but basically I sit in the garden under a tree for most of the day at the moment.
You probably haven't slept either due to what's going through your mind at the moment. This time last year I hadn't yet been diagnosed but once I was I lay staring at the ceiling with hubby snoring away beside me!
Good thing is the Perseids meteor shower start again about 10/12 August so go meteor watching!

I haven't used them myself, but I have bought cooling scarves and bandanas from Amazon. The bandanas come with a gel filling that soaks up water and releases coolness for several years. There are also cooling towels that do something similar.
Worth a try.
I do have small USB desk fans that I use around the house - one on my desk, one on the bedside. I find them pretty good.
