Seriously! Three times in the last week I've had to leave my workout because someone showed up and started working out next to me .. wearing COLOGNE! Please! Do we need to wear cologne to the gym? I just got a text message from my sis, Kim, saying she's outside in the hall of her dermatologists office because they had candles in the waiting room.
I realize the ban isn't coming any time soon. Meanwhile the degree to which I react to chemicals is getting worse and worse. I no longer am able to sit in upholstered furniture. I'm guessing the scotch guard they spray on fabric has something awful in it. When someone walks in the room wearing cologne I have to leave. I can't wear jewelry, so I feel like the plainest Jane ever. And then candles, I just love burning candles. Yes I started making my own, but it would be nice to buy the pretty ones.
Anyway the point of this rant is to ask you all: how do you do it? Does anyone have any suggestions on how they live in our toxic chemical world. Honestly this bit is driving me crazy and I would just love it if we could all collaborate about how to live here.
