DSM3KIDZ Posted May 14, 2006 Report Share Posted May 14, 2006 My 2 yr old was just in the hospital for 7 days and I was with him for every moment. I actually felt ALOT better in the hospital than I do when I'm at home. I had energy, minimal nausea and no headaches. I walked alot while carrying him and felt fine. I know my energy had to kick in to care for him but I'm at home and he still needs me because he is still really sick and now after being home for a full day I am very nauseated, have a headache and get lightheaded when standing.I know my home didn't cause my illness but there is something here that is exbarating my symptoms. EVERYTIME I leave for a full day I start feeling more manageable.I need to move but we just got a new furnace $4,700, new windows, new garage door, patio door and a deck and I love it. It will help it sell better but our neighborhood is great and I'll be soooo sad to leave expecially if I'm jusy as sick at a new home.I don't know what to do. When my daughter is done with school we are all going to live at my moms for a week and see if I can better care for them there. That will be my final experiment.I wrote about this in the past but does anyone have any suggestions. I DON"T WANT TO MOVE because it will be one more thing this illness has taken from me.Should I see an allergist about environmental allergies?We had our house tested for radon, carbon monoxide, mold (small amount in attic) and we have very little carpet. I don't know what else it could be.Sorry for rambling I am just so sad at the thought of leaving because of this illness. By the way..my home is 15yrs old.Maybe I should get an air exchange system ($2,500) but I don't want to spend anymore if were going to move.Any advise would be greatly appreciatedthanks to all and I missed everyone while I was away at Children's Hospital. I need a good hour to catch up on everyone's posts.Dayna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
