Thank you for visiting my blog.
If we are at an event, come up and say hello. I love to chat with people.
But…be advised, I have face blindness. On rare instances, I can look at a person and know who they are. Most of the time, I have no clue. So, please…tell me who you are.
If I act like I don’t know you, I’m not being standoffish. It is just that I have no idea if we have met before or not.
I also have a medical condition called “Multiple Chemical Sensivities Syndrome.” Various chemicals can make me very sick. And I have no idea ahead of time which chemicals will make me sick.
So, when you go to hug me, I will pull away as fast as I can. People coat themselves in chemicals (soap, perfume, lotion, aftershave, cologne, shampoo, laundry products, etc). In addition, scented candles, air fresheners, potpourri, cleaning products are all triggers.
So when I pull away from you, or when I leave a room, this is not to be rude. It is to protect my health as best I know how.
Best wishes to you all for peace and happiness and good friends and good health!
