The idea that I can make it out of The Labyrinth of Chemical Sensitivities is a big one. It’s not like I’m going to change who I am or anything, I just want to go to classes, the shops sometimes, my daughter’s school concerts, family bar-b-ques, that type of thing. Living my life without wearing a mask everywhere I go, was a beautiful thing. Being able to breathe in a whole cornucopia of aromas and chemicals without getting affected by most of them, was a beautiful thing. And earning my health back would enable me to do all of those things–and more. And if I did it once, I can do it again.
Chunking. That’s what I need to do. If I can break up this huge task into chunks, changing one thing at a time, then it’s damn well doable!

“when you’re in a spot of bother, and need to make changes, you don’t tend to know what the One Overhaul is that will fix you.
That’s far too big a decision to make. Far better to inch in a general direction, even if the destination is merely “forward”.”
The steps towards fixing my health are clearer now. (And of course I’ll share them with you.) Onwards we go…
