Re: Anybody else get sick from chemicals?
Just glad to find that other people are responding to this thread.
I've been suffering with this condition for over 10 years and it seems to be getting worse. I bought a coat with a fur collar and wore it for a 1 hour ride in a heated car. I started to taste the fur in my mouth and my nose plugged up and my ears started to hurt. I also started a new job as an assembler where there was a lot of chemicals. I started to have problems going into furniture stores and the laundry aisle in the supermarket. It has just been horrible. I even have a problem going into my doctor's office as the rug in the waiting room bothers me. Rugs bother me when they are new, when they have just been cleaned or when they are fully of dirt. I drive my dh crazy because there is always something that I am reacting to. I have problems with perfume, anything that has a petro-chemical base, paint, fabric sheets. I can't wear clothing that is made from wool or acrylic (sp). I am not a happy camper, as I'm sure none of you are. Sorry for the rant but it does help knowing that I'm not alone.
