About meI'm Australian, love animals and gardening. Am designing plans for a house near the ocean. Have had chemical sensitivities for nine years. I'm a student at Victoria University, studying Professional Writing and Editing.
Current health issuesDry eyes, mouth and nose after exposure to many chemicals. Problems with perfumes, solvents, petrochemicals, smoke, traffic fumes and *other things.
After breathing in most VOC's my nose hurts, sometimes for days; this leads to all smells hurting my nose (even cooking) and I also get headaches and sinus pain--and pulsating--throughout my facial region.
I wear a mask everywhere I go.

Hi Miche, sorry to hear you have to wear a mask everywhere due to your chemical sensitivities but great you are designing your own home! Also, I had to wear a mask even in my own bathroom and kitchen for years due to MCS but have now been recovered, or in remission, for 8 years. There's always hope
