The end of September is about the middle of what we at Chemical Injury Information Network call the Silly Season — the same way the 6'6" linebacker might be called Tiny. This is the time of year when due to summer-long exposures to sun, sun screen, pesticides, herbicides, and fires those who are chemically sensitive are at their lowest point. Emotionally hammered, logic impaired, physically beat.
This is the time of year to avid important decision-making, and to work hard to keep relationships on an even keel. Good luck.
