    I have a little hand held spray that squirts water in your face, it's actually very nice. And in desperation I have been known to sit on the floor in front of the freezer with the door open for a minute, because the heating is on for the 'normal' people who are feeling cold.

    It's not just the heat though, the flush itself feels quite nasty, but my CP told me ME causes an intolerance to pain and discomfort and we feel things far more acutely. I can agree with that.

    Honestly Trees .... if I had suggested a wet flannel to Alicia I would have been well and truly told off and probably received a cyber slap round the face with one :lol:

    A friend of mind described in detail a hot flush and they really do sound unpleasant :yuk:

    This was after I mentioned to her that I wouldn't mind having them cos I always feel cold ...... :erm:

    It's not just feeling hot, Katie, it makes you feel very lightheaded and weird.

    Why would I have slapped you with a wet flannel? I wouldn't've sad

    I know my neighbour swears by a herbal supplement that she sends off for - will try and find out what it is.

    Trouble is, once again, it is a very individual thing sad

    I'll e-mail her now :D

    Isn't it daft e-mailing a next door neighbour :roll:

    I just can't stand and chat these day, or phone for that matter - what a pain everything is :roll:

    Max Dog has a girlfriend, Susie, over the road. I e mail her mum, Cheryl all the time. I only call in if I am passing on Max Dog's walk. That is the way we are nowadays, e mailing is so easy, much easier than a phone call. Can't stand phone calls. :weird:
