See, since you don't use a lot of scented stuff, you haven't gone "nose blind"
to the smells so you don't use too much cologne.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

I’ve tried to be good with the lotion (especially after a shower), and the gloves, but it is wintertime, and an attack of eczema has come on.

It would anyway, but then handling all of this paperwork, I’m done for, well and truly.

Does anyone get dealt a winning genetic hand of cards?


Hmm,
Ian

Chanel has never been bothersome.

AXE is poison.

Paper is so painful for me to touch in the winter. Ink bothers me horribly, newspapers, magazines, etc.

I know it looks strange to use the dust mop and the vacuum from the rolling

what a work place accomodation looks like I guess.
As long as you're doing your job often people are very understanding. Good for you!

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

Have been given the advice to not date or have romantic or sexual relationships for a year and I intend to follow it. Yet, I have so many opportunities to get laid all of a sudden.

(And in rehab I found out that I have a sex and love addiction.)

But synthetic fragrance...the suffering starts right away. The headaches which are quickly followed by the nausea...ugh.

Women in their natural state smell ******* fantastic.

On my fb mom's forum they recommend Cetaphil a lot. Also Aveeno. Some
recommend plain old coconut oil ... I may be the only person that's allergic to
coconut.

I don't know which ones affect me the most. I've heard some real horror stories
about AXE, reactions a lot like I have to some scents. The doctor told me I have
an allergic reaction which causes a neurological reaction. Weird huh.

The cleaning lady she had before me was unreliable. I've only missed two days
in the 11 years I've worked there. Of course, I only work one day a week
but that's still a pretty good record.

Once when my sister died the night before and once when I broke my upper arm.
I kept going to work with the broken arm, but it took me longer to do the job.

Yeah, it does seem to make a difference for me whether it's natural or artificial scent.

The headaches and nausea is pretty typical for an allergy to scent.

It makes me feel spacey and weak. Last time I was driving home, same highway
I drive every week for 11 years now, and at one point I felt horribly lost.

Got home and checked my blood pressure, so low everyone is amazed I didn't
pass out. Then it bounced clear up to stroke level. At the ER I was given three
benedryl and two corticosteroid pills. That was a handFULL of meds!

Now I don't go anywhere without several benedryl in a case in my pocket.

CeraVe quit on me fast and made it worse. Now I use Vanicream.

This is like a commercial.

Yeah, that's what I thought. But I googled allergies to scents and saw that
changes in blood pressure can be a problem, so I checked mine.

I was so shocked that it was only 77/55 so I called "ask-a-nurse" and she was
so schocked she told me to call for an ambulance ride to the ER. Didn't want
me driving.

I called my daughter and she took me to the ER. By then my BP was 202/104.
They gave me the pills and made me lay there on the exam table until it was
back to normal.

I've felt like that at times before but had no idea my BP was going wonky.

Do you have a BP monitor? Next time you feel like that it might be a good idea
to check your blood pressure.

As long as we don't link any ads for these creams we should be okay.
