Fresh air does not smell of fragrance

Frisk luft lukter ikke av parfyme.

Merry Christmas shut out

Happy Holidays?

Fresh-Air-For-All-Guests-Christmas It is this time of year when all families gather together and salubrate the holidays together, first Christmas and then New Years.

Invitations are sent and everyone is expected to come on the invitation like the host want it.

I am visiting in different asthma and allergy, and sensitivity fora online and read page up and page down about relatives inviting their kids, cousins, grandkids, siblings and other relatives to the holidays and everyone want to come, just they can not.

And why?

Family can sometimes be even worse than other friends in life, it seems like they are deaf to life and others needs. They want to be presentable and they want to make a cozy holidays for all and make a happy party – on their terms.

I then wonder why they are not listening to what their family and friends tell them about their asthma and allergies, that they can not be around cats, dogs, birds,, tobacco smoke, vaping, fragrance, air fresheners, incense, scented candles, and can not eat a range of different things. Many allergies are even airborne so if any of the things they are allergic to is there they get sick from breathing.

I read about families who invite to holidays and parties and demand to have the gathering at their home even though they know and have been told many times their friends or family members are sick from their animals, fragrance products, tobacco smoke (second and third hand), vaping and some food, fragrance, aftershave and other things. They are told all year-long and every year at Christmas and New Years that the family member is sick from these things, still it is like the host behave like they are thick in the head. Either they have a hearing problem, or it must be they are either thick in their head and do not grasp for a moment what is the problem, or they just do not care.

But actually it should not have to be explained in detail what happens in the body when a person is exposed to allergens and irritants, it should be enough they are told the person get sick from it, and when told – Could you please come to our place instead? And could you please come fragrance free, smoke free, fur free, and bring no food or what ever the allergy and asthma is against? They should do that without hesitating, all for the cause and best for the person we all love who has allergies and asthma.

Every year it is the same thing, and every year I wonder what is wrong with these people? They say they love their family and friends, but still they seem to not care and go on hurting them.

In the end the person having asthma and allergies end up having a Christmas and New Years being sick, really sick, being on medication and having a bad health. All because some people do not listen.

It should be easy. They could just listen and do as asked of them for the greater good and good health of someone they claim to like and love, and someone they claim they care for.

If you claim these things, that you love and care for a person, please step up and show for real that it is true by showing it with your actions.

Caring about your loved ones should be more important than where and how you salubrate your Christmas and New Years.

Or your loved ones end up sitting alone at the Holidays, or getting really ill just because you do not care.

Read about asthma and allergy by looking through the menu, and links. Also read about testimonials, Go fragrance Free archives, and all the other knowledge. Take your time and be a better family and friend.

Please, let it be a Happy, including and Healthy Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for everyone.

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.

One thought on “Merry Christmas shut out

  1. People like their traditions. Sometimes traditions need to be broken to protect our health. It would be nice if everyone embraced a fragrance free Christmas tradition
