I despise heat and humidity. My friends always talk about moving to Florida or somewhere tropical and I could not stand for that.
On the topic of water, I can detect the differences of tap water between towns. Filtered water just tastes better because it filtered out the magnesium and chlorine or whatever they put in water these days.

I am the opposite. I love heat, but I'm extra sensitive to cold. Even with extra warm jumpers and coats I start shivering before anyone else. I don't really notice humidity at all, it's confusing when people complain about it, because I don't understand what they're talking about. I do notice when people are blasting out the air con and it is cold and dry and that's really uncomfortable for me.
I'm also variably sensitive to flavours, texture is much more important to me. I think that's why I don't really enjoy drinking that much- water, cola or even alcohol. I much prefer smoothies or thick milkshakes because then it actually feels like I'm getting something. Drinking is more of a chore for me- something I do because I have to.

I have sensory issues with water. :lol:


I love the heat (though struggle A LOT with humidity), and like Goth Fairy I'm extremely sensitive to cold. If a room is 'warm enough' for me to be comfortable, it's far too hot for everyone else.

yeah if you drink water it helps balance your temperature dehydrated if you don't drink water

You'll both love the fact that I'm also in the UK and still wearing just a t-shirt! Everyone else in the office are wearing jumpers and hoodies and I'm still too hot :)

As for water? I love it. It's my drink of choice throughout the day.

Well the heat here is pretty extreme but you get sort of use to it, I don't leave the house without water but that just seems like a smart thing to do in such an unforgiving desert. It's nice this time of year but it gets really cold at night, something about this cold really chills you to the bone for some reason, I shiver like one of those little chihuahuas its so cold. :oops:

Yeah I have a real problem with my internal thermostat , I overheat when it's too warm , I'm pretty sure it was caused by antipsychotics ( cant prove it ). I know drinking water is very beneficial but I can't do it , I don't like the taste of water and sometimes force myself to drink it when I'm ill.

Wow, this went quickly from a "water" conversation to a "temperature" conversation.

As for water, it's the only beverage I'll drink. It's the cheapest and healthiest. I'm on a well, so the water tastes great.

On the temperature side of things, I'm fairly tolerant to low temperature, but I can't stand a humidex over 30. This isn't to do with sensory processing issues, but more to do with not sweating. I don't sweat anywhere other than my hands and feet. As a result high temperatures aren't just uncomfortable, they're potentially dangerous. This could become especially problematic in a warming climate...

Waterwise-I'm very picky. I won't drink it unless its very cold, or from a waterbottle.
Temperaturewise-I hate heat. I love the cold, and it takes a lot to make me cold.

Not really, it makes me feel better than the days when all I drank was soda, I try to go through 1.5 litres a day of hydration. I suppose there's something in that because liquids and solids can be absolutely loaded with crap that affects your brain balance negatively and induce bodily processes which can contribute to meltdowning.

I also hate hot weather, especially hot, humid weather. I have had the opportunity to go south to Florida for the winter for many years now, with my snow bird parents, who have a summer home up here, and a winter home in Florida. I will never go there, because even in the winter, most of the time Florida is too warm and humid for me. I'd rather stay up here and freeze in my trailer. Actually I do okay. I have a new furnace to replace the clunker that never worked right, and then didn't work at all. I have room heaters to allow me to keep the room I am in warmer, while turning down the furnace heat for the whole trailer. I have plenty of blankets, and warm clothes, including a lovely blanket that has fake lambswool on one side, and extremely soft, plushy velour on the other side. It's basically two blankets that were stitched together, so it is more layers. It's twice as big as I need, size wise, so I double it up, which makes it even warmer. I also have a nice comforter that I double up too, so I am warm enough when sleeping. I also have a Queen size down duvet comforter stored in a closet, that had belonged to my mother. After she died, this is one of the things of hers that I got. If I have a serious power failure that lasts for days, I can go stay at a relatives home, who have a wood burning stove, & a generator, but I would rather stay here & run the gas stove burners, like I did when the old furnace died. My place is somewhat drafty, so that's not a serious hazard for me. I might have a problem with the pipes freezing though.

About 11 years ago I lived thru a 5 & a half day power outage caused by a series of snow and ice storms, so I know what that's like, and what to do if it happens again.

Ah! There I go again, getting off topic. Well, I am sensitive to hot humid weather, but then, I don't much like frost bite, either, and I've experienced that, too.
