Environmental Illnesses and MCS
Do you know which diagnoses has 33 million people with it in the US alone? Did you know that that’s way more than the population of people in at least a few states? The diagnosis’s are Environmental Illnesses (EI), and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS).
I’m sure many of you’ve heard of autism and autism awareness month which just ended in April. You may know with that diagnosis and other neurological or neorobiological diagnoses with sensory issues, there is very often environmental triggers that are identical to those with MCS. The same is true, comparing some of our symptoms as well. The cure, when possible, sometimes is the same as those who have MCS or EI . Therefore, those with MCS and EI have and will help even more, society, to accept our sensory needs better.
If you do not now what environmental illnesses are or how they can effect those with it. You will soon, if you read my posts, some of what I link you too, and watch atleast 1, if not more, of the videos that I HIghly recommend, and have seen. Thus far, two are free with digital documents read options, and the other is 3$ to rent digitally for a week on amazon. However, all three are able to be purchased as well for non digital copies. EI and MCS have there own awareness month too! It’s in May, this Month! . And many of the sensory issues people have with MCS, need the same or similar accomodation that someone with ASD, Asperger’s, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Lymphoma, Leukemia, and certain other environmental issues would.
Although, many with ASD, Aspergers, dyspraxia and ADHD do have many negative environmental triggers, that cause some of our issues. We do not have an environmental illness. However, someone with any of those non EI diagnosis’s can get an environmental illness from environmental dangerous exposures. And some with any of the above neurological and neurobiological conditions are more susceptible or likely to get MCS as well. However, there are numerous individuals (And they are the only ones shown in the videos) who never had any other diagnoses prior to getting MCS or EI.
There are several environmental illnesses, some are the following, MCS, altimers, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction System, Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Multiple Sclerosis. Buy the way, Leukemia and Lymphoma are cancers, that numerous people all over the world have died from. Some types of Lymphoma, now, have cures. But, you have to survive them, and afford them. Which are a fortune with and without health insurance. Not to mention, not get another cancer, from it’s treatment, later on in life.
I’ll post more about these issues mostly this month.
