Heat Addiction

Is it possible to be addicted to heat? I'm serious. I just broke out "our warmie" (the Presto Heat Dish from Costco) for the first time this winter, and I cannot get enough. I don't want to even get up to go to the bathroom, b/c I'll have to leave my heat & get cold. I'm like this year-round: I turn on my mom's heated seats in her car the second I get in & sit down - even in July. When my van is overheated, I sit in it for several minutes before turning on any air. I dream of saunas & hot tubs, and my favorite pastime is basking in the sun. I cannot stand for fans or air to blow on me where I can feel it. I always want a blanket or cover up. From around October through April, I usually don't take off my coat to sit down & eat in restaurants. I think I officially have heat addiction...

  1. I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to having a space heater blowing on me lol. However, I really should stop... Like, it's right under my desk and blows directly onto my feet/shins and I actually have burn marks on my right foot and shin now :(. Also, I just realized that this post was like 6 years old, but after writing this much already...

  2. It's OK! We live in Texas now (frigid Chicago when I wrote this) where it's 80° today...but I still have that heat dish in front of my place on the couch, and if it's in the 50's at night, I'm turning on the space heater beside my bed, too. :-D Being back home in the South hasn't lessened my addiction one bit!

  3. OMG I thought I was the only one addicted to a space heater, i love the sounds it makes and the heat sensation on my skin so relaxing, I even had the space heater on when I lived in Florida with the central AC on blast for my roommates lol

  4. I also have this problem it's almost as if the cold hurts I sleep with my hair dryer. I saw that on tv and I totally understood. I LOVE space heaters and I go tanning for the warmth. Also I take A LOT of baths. I thought it was an iron deficiency. We should start a cult. I'll bring the heated blankets. (I actually used mine too much so it broke)

  5. I also once thought it could be an iron deficiency, but every time I’ve had blood work, I do not come back anemic at all. I really think I am just hyper sensitive to the cold. It seems to be a genetic trait among some people in my family, so I’m going with that. :-) Heat club meetings in the steam room at the gym! :-D

  6. I'm glad I am not the only one that is feeling this. I am from Louisiana moved to Missouri. There are actually seasons here and it's fucking painfully cold. I am trying to adjust to their spring but it's just too cold for me. I will almost boil my skin off in the tub, or cook it in front of a space heater. I don't know what to do!
