Sick Building Syndrome

March 29, 2006 at 11:15 p03 (General Chatter)

Despite the state i was in, i managed to finish my client report and made it home for dinner with SO. One less angry client tomorrow, i managed a smile as i walked out of the office. As soon as i stepped out of the office, i already felt much much better. My Niagara nose had run its waterfall course. I read somewhere that the poor indoor air quality of office building do affect one’s health. Bad air quality could cause Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). Symptoms like teary eyes, running nose and migraine could be the symptom of SBS.

In fact after dinner, i felt as energetic as a Tiger. When i relate the SBS and my pussy cat condition in the office, SO was quick to retort, “Aiyah! It is just your excuses of not wanting to stay in the office and work!” She may have a point, and i concurred. Now i know ……

I am allergic to work, SBS or not!!

    No kidding! Once I leave my super cold freezer of an office, my nose will clear up! It’s ironic because the office building is brand new.

    beware of formaldyhide poisoning. it comes from glue used in new furniture.

    i have studied similar condition like yours for years and is very familiar with your illness. it is medically termed as DWWS (or what we call the don wan work syndrome). the western continent have coined it WWGLE (when working gives lots of excuses). for treatment, take two bottles of beer and stay away from the office.

    actually, next time bring peppermint teabag to work and make yourself a cuppa to clear your nose 🙂

    whatya hv is Unresolved Sinus Bug dat existed long b4 de SB. 2 resolve the issue, several optns opened : consult a ENT specialist, hook up 2 an oxygen tank c/w mask n mouthpiece (as if scuba divin’); or live with USB permanently. ALL else fails, lease an office space in the gazebo at Botanical Gardens

    I think SO may be right. Psycho-somatic – when mind is fine, body is fine too.

    Achoo! Sniff, sniff. Wipes nose.
