Sick of the cold, sick from the cold

Masha • When I first came to live here full time, in February 2015, we couldn't afford to buy an electric heater for my bedroom. It was a cold winter, going as low as -20°C outside at times. In my room, the temperature was only about 15°C. I was sick all the time. Now I leave the electric heater on all the time, even when I go out. If I don't, it's too cold and takes too long to warm up again when I come back.
