I’m just plain sick today but, I think that in my headache/nausea induced brain fog I managed to figure out my environment is the cause of my malaise this winter and last.
I’m pretty sure if I had access to any measuring device it would tell me the air quality in this trailer is bad (from my symptoms I suspect formaldehyde). And I quote:
“People who may have concerns about IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) often mention the following symptoms as health concerns:
- dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin,
- shortness of breath,
- hypersensitivity and allergies,
- sinus congestion,
- coughing and sneezing,
- dizziness, and/or
Part of the problem is that the windows freeze shut in the winter. I even tried heating them with the blow dryer for my hair but to no avail. So all I can do is open the screen door window. Thankfully they still work.
The other issue is that the ventilation in here depends on those crazy fans in the bathrooms that shake, rattle, and roll every time you turn on the light. Horrible things and every once in a while I unhook them. Obviously a bad idea.
Add to that the cold weather outside(making a person want to stay inside), lack of cows (I always blame being unhappy on the no-cows syndrome), and cleaning products I’ve been using in abundance lately, it’s no wonder I’ve been feeling like death warmed over. I’m going to fix it one way or another. I have way to much to do to be unproductive.
