I have a conditon called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I have a sense of smell like a Green Canary. I can't handle any chemicals. They bring on everything from nausea, to migraines, fatigue, pain, to completely unresponsive because I get an ashma like reaction. We use all organic products and still have to watch the scented organic products.
I have been like this since 2004. Haven't been in a mall, grocery store since 2006. I get so ill and just want to go to bed. I have a wealthh of info on this.
In the US 46 states have claimed one week in May as MCS awareness month.
Many people say they think it is in my head. However, it has saved my and my mother's life on more than one occasion. I could smell gas in the house even my mother hasn't been able to smell. The consumers company took 3 hours but finally found three minute leaks. And another time I smelled gas that was caused when a carbon monoxide leak combusted with the furnace coming on. It took four furnace people to finally believe me and found the leak.
While my sense of smell can be annoying at times ( and very isolating) it is blessing to me because it allowsa me to know what is making me ill and get away from it. and it has also saved my life.
