My dear friend wysgal thought I should read this:
FOR Patty Mulcahy, it began with itchy eyes. They started to water two years ago when renovation began on the Midtown office building where she was working as an assistant at a television network. By the fifth day, after 30,000 square feet of new carpeting had been glued in place, the redness and swelling became unbearable. She ended up in the emergency room.
Over the next three months, she developed a bad cough. Doctors at first suspected pneumonia, but it worsened in spite of antibiotics. When she collapsed at her desk in October 2006, barely able to breathe, she learned she had what doctors call “occupational asthma.”
In other words, she was allergic to work.

I doubt I have this though, because I was still feeling kind of sick this weekend even if I just stayed home to rest. What a bummer. I went boxing yesterday and I couldn't last the whole session - I got really dizzy midway. Augh, what a weakling!
