Pat & Mary,
I appreciate the candor with which you have responded to the individual who is
apparently suffering from the same thing that I am. Did you know that perfume is
one of the non-controlled killing chemicals? So to test your MCS, on days that
you just think your allergies are kicking up, think about what cologne you are
wearing. There was an individual in my life that took great fun in wearing
certain scents that zoned me out. Unfortunately, the poor individual did not
realize that she was suffering the same fate....she always sounded like she had a
cold. She would spritz it on and come into where I was and stand as close as
possible as I started hacking and begged for air. I even talked to her
diplomatically about the situation to no avail.
Anyone who is knowledgeable about RADS; MCS and/or asthma realizes that once you
have been exposed, the damage is already done to the lungs, the healing time is
indefinite because of the constant exposure to pollutants and those that have no
mercy on an individual with this condition. One thing that I cannot tolerate is
ignorance on a subject and an individual responding with "college diploma", fly
by the seat of your pants attitude.
So do not be too rough on the poor soul that is in ALL CAPS, the individual is as
angry as I am....but I know the law of the universe, what goes around comes around
just so the other person realizes and can sympathize with a situation. But if you
want to have "fun", go ahead, it will be at your own expense!
