Ok, let's be nice to one another. Please remember everyone is different. Not everyone is going to love the summers here in Florida. Just like not everyone is going to hate the winters up north. Let's try to understand our differences.

Big, BAD A-- T-storms in Naples. Not just once today, but TWICE. Dark, thunder, lightening, torrential downpours, and winds!!!!!. Not just purple on the radar, but BROWN. No, I will not post a link to the radar. I love it. My plants love it. The egrets will love it fishing for their dinner tongiht in the lake.

Of course, it cannot possibly be raining. This is Florida! The sun is brightly shining because it IS in Tampa, Clearwater, or Weeki Wachi, etc., etc. Everyone sit by the pool, have your beer, and enjoy the sunshine right now in Naples.

As for other people, complaining only makes you and others around you more miserable. I can go outside and be perfectly fine, then someone says, "sure is hot out here" and then I start thinking about it
Then you need to go back into my older posts about the heat causing me to have acute asthma from the particles in the humid air(doctor tested me in May for it), also skin rashes caused by sweating to death out there.

PEOPLE! Some of us are warm, moist weather people, some of us grew up around and still long for seasons and even the cold, some of us like the dry heat of the desert (NOT ME ANYMORE), some of us long for only sun, some of us need that change that comes with seasons. No one needs to take this sooo personally that we are attacking each other! I prefer warm moist weather so I'm headed down to Florida, that sounds perfect to me but this is not perfect for people like ChrisA70. Everyone needs to just agree to disagree and know that everyone's likes and needs are different.

but my doctor prescribed topical cortisone (higher strength than OTC) for the heat hives. It does help with the spreading next to the original outbreak. It keeps the redness and subsequent crusting down, but I was also told to keep out of the sun when using cortisone. You have to cover up when using it if you are outside n the sun. Going outside in the sun will only increase the redness and it will burn. Been there, done that.

Sorry, to get a little OT, but the OP did talk about skin conditions.

I just try to do outside stuff when I=it is cloudy. Can't escape the heat. I use a cortisone product too for the heat rash. It also makes my neck break out so I usually run home from work throughout the day to get a cold cloth on my neck.

If FL had perfect weather for everyone in the USA it would be overpopulated and sink...

I was told that too. Yeah, I am stressed. Stressed from all the heat and humidity. Stress worrying after the last two October outreaks in Florida, what the current October is going to bring. In that respect, I dread the Fall in some ways even more than the Summer. Last winter, with it's record breaking cold, was wonderful. Not just from a comfort zone, but these hives completely went away for the first winter since living here. They always completely went away in NY in the Fall and the Winter.

I was told I could also take "happy" pills, as my older bipolar daughter calls them, to relieve the stress. Wonderful. I need to take happy pills so I can relieve the stress due to the climate of where I live. What is wrong with this picture? No thank you. It is not worth it. Better to just move to a better climate.

I've always dreamed of Seattle even though I've never been there. It seems that it's never too hot and never too cold and there are all types of nature around (water, mountains, etc). And it rains but definitely not as much as the stereotype and besides, I don't mind the rain at all (as long as it is without lightning).

I've also dreamed of Burlington, Vermont. Even though it gets much colder than in Seattle but I really do not mind the cold at all. In fact it makes me feel alive.

Right on. I've lived in "cold places" and while everyone was whining and complaining during winter, I was out and about enjoying myself and life. It actually made me happy because it showed me that I was definitely in the right place. Now that I am in Florida, it is the opposite, I just feel down and miserable 10 months per year and I realize that I should get out of here as soon as I get a chance because I am certainly not the best I could be while living here.

But don't get me wrong, I think Florida is beautiful BUT to visit. Living in Florida is a completely different thing.

I must have missed that. No wonder you complain about the heat so much . Florida is definitely not the place for you. Good luck on getting back north.
