This has been in the back of my mind for a long time and it's time to try and find some answers!

My problem is that I am always cold.  I think I have been like this for years, since I was a teenager. I live in The Netherlands, I've lived here my whole life. In the summer it gets into the 30°C, but I'm NEVER hot. I keep my apartment thermostat at 20°C and I still wear a sweatshirt and slippers. I have the heat on in my car all the time. I'm just always always cold, no matter what the temerature is. It's very weird.

I went in snow once, skiing with my friends, and I had to sit the whole trip out because even though I had 9 layers of clothes on (no kidding) I was so cold that my face, hands and feet went numb and it was the only time in my life that I seriously thought I might die, I was so cold.

Anyway, now that I've told you my life story :) I'm wondering why I'm ALWAYS cold. Is it just normal for me? I have no medical conditions, I take good care of my health. Any insight into this? Just wondering if there's something I can do or if it's just how I am?
