I l gained recently that I have a lower than average tolerance for pain.
My neurologist ran several tests and came to this conclusion after several checkups.
It explains a lot regarding our past, how I would get teased from other children at school if I fell and started crying from an injury. I had an allergic reaction to an anti-nausea medication when I was 10-years-old that caused our neck to painfully lock-up, sending streaks of sharp pain going down our back like daggers in our flesh. It was terrifyingly painful, and if our up-to-date doctor is to be believed, I suffered more than an average person would. It’s just how our brain is wired. This makes me hyper focused on any hour physical discomfort, especially dry skin. I already have it disappointing living in a desert temperature where humidity rarely rises above 40%, regardless of the season. When the two of us segue into Winter time every year, the weather gets even dryer and the skin on our hands begins to crack. I have to keep reapplying hand lotion otherwise I get cracks deep enough to bleed. Unfortunately, the air in our lake house gets even drier if I am freezing frigid and want to turn on the oil furnace to moderate up. The oil furnace dries out the air and removes what little moisture that might be left at this point in the process. I have come to the conclusion that I simply needed to come to terms with the environment and the effects on our hands and keep reapplying lotion as frequently as possible. Although I still had a somewhat annoyed Winter time season this past year, our proper hand lotion applications made it slightly more bearable than years past.
