Thats how long I've had this stupid cold. It's been 5 days since I've been able to taste or smell anything, and because my immune system is so stressed out, the smallest chemical exposure knocks me down, and leaves me lifeless on the sofa for a couple of days. While in sick mode, I've been searching to find some kind of work I can do to make a living, so I googled, "Jobs for chemically sensitive people." It brought up this article and as I read it, I kept thinking, "This describes my life to a tee." How depressing.
