It hit me yesterday while I was enjoying a few hours at the yarn store that the ceilings are full of fluorescent lights, and my heart dropped. When I got home I was tired and achey and my cheeks were bright red. Today I don't feel as well as I did yesterday. I wonder if all the time I spend at the shop have been contributing to the little flares I've been having. I had to double up on prednisone this week because of more inflammation in my joints. If this is the case, I couldn't have gotten worse news. The yarn store is my main social outlet and I so look forward to dropping in to knit with my friends and also to the monthly knit-ins we have. Now I wonder how I can continue hanging out there.
I know that fluorescent lighting has the same UV rays that the sun does so does that mean I can wear sunblock and be protected? I need to find an answer to this dilemma. I'm going to research covers for flourescent lights but imagine they are real expensive
