Any tips on dealing with the heat when you're on lithium?
Here is what I do:
I drink a LOT of water
I douse my head with water
Take air conditioning breaks when I can (another property doesnt have air)
Stay inside on the very hottest days (over about 85 fareignheit)
work in the morning and evening.
I have to wear bug spray much of the time, which puts on a coating of oil and makes me hotter. My vehicle does not have AC and I can't afford a new one until it fails. Sometimes it seems like if I eat something salty it helps? Is there some lithium sodium balance messed up?
Any extra tips would be great! Thanks, all of you!!
Sorry, I'm not good with the suggestions. I completely understand, my meds mess with my internal cooling system. Try taking an ice pack with you or a frozen bottle of water.
Eating some salt might help because it helps your electrolyte balance (like Powerade or Gatorade).
