The Gloves are a part of me; sometimes, I think they were always there.
I have Raynaud’s Syndrome. In Raynaud’s Syndrome, one’s blood vessels narrow when the person gets cold or stressed. This happens in extremities like fingers and toes, causing them to appear white or blue and become cold and eventually numb without feeling. This is not the same as being allergic to the cold.
Living with Raynaud’s is (usually) not the end of the world. The condition acts as a nuisance, just another thing to attend to in this rollercoaster we call life. After two years of hand warmers, toe warmers, and running inside to run my fingers under hot water after being in the cold for 10 minutes, I decided to invest in heated gloves.
Browsing through Amazon’s heated gloves selection, I found the perfect pair. Removable and rechargeable batteries, a cute case, and with The Look™ of an eighteenth-century blacksmith—The Gloves and I were meant to be.
Some of you may have seen us on campus. Some you may have gawked at the appearance of The Gloves in 40º weather. Some of you may even have Raynaud’s Syndrome.
My particular case of Raynaud’s is worse than the average. Most people can survive with normal gloves or incredibly deep pockets. But if you have a particularly frigid case of Raynaud’s, I suggest investing in battery-powered gloves. They make life a little easier.
Now, all we need are battery-powered socks.
