I was beginning to understand my former roommate, and feel bad
I never thought I would be the kind of person to worry about air quality. I used to have a roommate, who was super particular about the indoor air quality of our shared apartment. She suffered from pretty bad allergies, and was constantly sneezing and sniffling. She was constantly checking her UV air purifier, as well as calling to have the air quality tested. Honestly, I kind of thought that she was being overdramatic, and that it wasn’t that bad. After all, I wasn’t being affected at all, so why is she having such a harsh reaction? My conclusion is that she was being overdramatic. Well, we eventually split ways and I moved into an apartment closer to the city. Because this was in the city, it was closer to polluted areas. Not long after moving into my apartment, I noticed I was sniffling and my eyes were scratchy. I developed a cough, and I grew worried that I was ill. I went to my doctor, who told me it was the indoor air quality. I decided that I was going to get an air cleaner, because this constant allergy was miserable. I was beginning to understand my former roommate, and feel bad. Now I wish I had a bit more empathy for her situation. Anyways, I bought my air cleaning system, and it is supposed to be here in the next few days, and it can’t come quick enough. I feel miserable all of the time now, and I can’t wait to feel normal again.
