Cool Re: flourescent lights

Hiya Marsha,

I had a really bad experience yesterday because of these lights in a food store. I felt dizzy and so horrid.

I have found information for you for products/covers for fluorescent lights in the US. We cannot give out web addresses here on the forum. So I will send you a pm with the relevant details.

p.s. Sorry Marsha just discovered that I cannot send you a pm as you have declined to receive them.

Hiya Marsha,

Hopefully this will explain how to do it for you.

At the top left of this page click on My Settings. It will take you to Your Control Panel again on the left hand side. Then go Edit Options and on right hand side main body of page, go to Private Messaging and tick the box allowing you to receive pm's.

Hope this helps.

Re: flourescent lights

I would think Lupus is considered a disability, and if you can verify that flourescent lights somehow affects a lupus patient, your employer would be responsible to make reasonable accomodations under the disability act. I would check to see if there is something in the literature on lupus regarding exposure to flourescent lighting and make the employer do the upgrade for you. Just my 2 cents!
