Hello, Everyone...

I have not been feeling too good this past summer. The heat and humidity has killed me. My mother will bleach the bathroom and then, I will really be sick. She cleaned out the kitty Litter box last night and that made me sick as well.

Is there anyway to control this sensitivity?

Sick as in how? I doubt there is anyway to control this sensitivity other then removing yourself from the situation when these triggers occur.

Sick as I was having chest pains and discomfort. Isn't there a medication that will block the triggers or something?

Anahistimines might help you. A filter mask will help when she cleans. Do you have an inhaler? It might be wise to get one.

How about turning on exhaust fans or opening windows? Maybe you could go shopping when she's using chemicals that are toxic to you.

Or - how about replacing the trigger chemicals with ones that don't bother you?? There are lots of disinfectants besides bleach. Vinegar or baking soda clean things, just not together!

Maybe remove spray bottles and have buckets and rags instead to help keep the stuff fropm being aerosolized.
