I never wanted to be the style of woman who forced other humans to take action. I understand that everyone is autonomous & they should be able to do as they please. With that being said though, there are times when it is necessary to supply people with a gentle push or strong urges in the right direction. Unluckily, it seems to be reaching that point with my good friend when it comes to her recent acquisition of a huge, startling pet. Do not get me wrong, I adore animals. However, an ultimatum is coming her way. It is going to be me or the pet. When she went out to adopt this pet, I was diligent in reminding her that I had horrific indoor air pollen levels sensitivities. If she was going to get a massive, dirty animal then I was going to experience a horrendous time with my indoor flu symptoms. I can hardly breathe when I’m under the same roof as a cat, let alone a large, fluffy pet. The pet hair & dander effectively irritates my lungs & mucous membranes to the point that I cannot see straight or breathe. This is when I begin taking over-the-counter prescription medications, and soon, I’m so preoccupied with the indoor air pollutants that I cannot sleep at night. I warned my good friend about all of these flu symptom concerns & air quality concerns I had, but that didn’t prevent her from adopting this horrible creature. Now, I cannot breathe in my own home & she pollutes my indoor air with her pet dander that follows. At this point, my air purification plan cannot keep up with the air quality issue. I hate to tell my good friend, but it is going to be me or this sizable, fluffy beast.
