Did you ever feel like giving your neighbour a smack?
Da Wife (DW) has Environmental Illness which is essentially allergies to chemicals. Its like people who are allergic to perfume but 100 times worse. Well the guy across the street (actually he is next to the guy across the street) sprayed pesticides on his lawn last night in the dark. We have been trying to educate him over the last couple of years about the dangers because he has a young daughter with respiratory problems. She actually has oxygen in the house. We were hoping he would catch on as pesticides make DW quite sick.
Anyhow . . . DW walked outside last night and got hit with that chemical smell. I walked out and experience it myself. All last night we both had headaches and were quite nauseous. DW was actually quite sick all day . . . pains in chest, difficulty breathing, really tires, headache, etc. I called the poison control hotline in this area and they confirmed pesticide poisoning.
She is feeling a little better now . . . but I feel like going across the street and giving buddy a smack.
