Eve’s story

“The physical aspects are frightening and debilitating and the social consequences are sad, infuriating and humiliating. So many people just assume you are a complainer or a hypochondriac, when you are just trying to stay alive. I learned to suffer in silence(and further damaged my body) because people would be offended if I suggested something they used was toxic. After a while, I realized that I would just have to piss people off and let them think or say what they want.

I just want to give you a little background: I was always a healthy conscious, actively exercising and well-eating, so I was sensitive to chemicals, and maybe a few years ago, perfumes started bothering me. All of a sudden, in my gym and my workout class, people’s perfumes and fabric softener started bothering me, making me feel so sick, so  that I couldn’t stand to stay in the room anymore. I was left with a headache, disorientation and gasping for breath. Over a short period of time, wherever I went, the chemicals everywhere just bothered me—gave me headaches, made me grouchy, made me spacey, make me tired, hurt my lungs, and just made me feel awful.

If I went to the park and the chlorine from the fountain would hurt my lungs. If I was on the sidewalk, I could smell people’s perfume through the windows. Those little pine tree air fresheners made it impossible to ride in a taxi. I had an asthma attack working out on a polluted day and that was the beginning of my lungs being damaged. Once I was sickened by some  ‘aroma therapy’ (“organic” from China ) so that I could hardly even manage to put a sentence together.”

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
