Raynaud’s disease is an odd affliction that causes a person’s extremities to feel numb and cold in response to cold temperatures and stress.
I mean, everyone’s extremities feel numb and cold in the cold, but this goes above and beyond. And if you suffer from the disease, then these 10 pictures are going to make you feel so seen.
#10. Just watching people “enjoy” the cold makes you shiver.
Seriously, what is wrong with people?
#9. You’re totally used to looking like you’re part zombie.
The discoloration might freak out your friends, though.
#8. Especially when it reaches your toes.
Like, what’s up with that?
#7. You dream of moving to San Diego.
Steady, year-round temperatures are your friend.
#6. You think white fingers are weird?
How about the fun shade of purple they turn when they start to warm up!
#5. Heat sources are like your crack.
Your friends know that if you don’t come back for awhile, you’re in the bathroom holding your hands under the electric hand dryer.
#4. Seriously, you should buy stock in glove companies.
But anything hot between your hands will work.
#3. Your fingers (and toes) don’t just look weird…
It hurts – like pins and needles!
#2. Even too much air conditioning can trigger you.
Everyone else thinks air conditioning is the greatest invention ever, but you know the truth.
#1. And holding a cold beer is a potential hazard.
Koozies are your friends.
It’s rough – buy some extra blankets!
