Hi I’m **Anaamika ** and have hot feet.
No, I know they’re *attractive *. But what I mean is that they are several degrees warmer than the rest of my body. I wear sandals ten months out of the year in Albany, NY, and people are shocked but I am genuinely made uncomfortable by shoes & socks. People don’t understand how quickly my feet heat up walking even short distances. When I sleep at night, I stick my feet out of the blankets. I cannot stand when the sheets are tucked into the mattress. When I was little and my parents tried to put me in jammies with the feet because they thought it was cute I screamed the house down. I will wear socks and shoes, don’t get me wrong, but only for specific occasions:
[li] I’m hiking or jogging or biking or some activity that requires shoes.[/li][li] It’s below 10 degrees in temp.[/li][li] There is snow on the ground that I have to walk through.[/li][/ul]
I’ve only ever met one other person who understood, and that was a person whose husband had the same issue as me. My SO thinks it’s one of my more charming traits but thinks it’s silly.
So there’s gotta be Dopers who have the same issue. Anyone?
