Has anyone concluded they are allergic to a place?
I have lived in this house for seven years and have never slept well, waking up with bunged up sinuses and, more recently, feelings of anxiety.
During that time, I have semi-retired (could be a clue there) so my days are not as structured.
In the last few months, I have also been suffering from, of all things, a very itchy throat and neck.
I notice that this all improves/disappears when I am away from this house and this town. The minute I’m back, the sleeplessness, anxiety and the annoying itching start up again.
Can I be allergic to the town, the house, the bedroom, the bed, the mattress, the bedding??? Where to start? Or is the whole thing psychological (much more difficult to fix)?
It may be that when I’m away (e.g. this last week, helping to look after human dynamo of a toddler GS) the tiredness sorts
me out. Trips away tend to be active, too,so perhaps produce the same effect. Or perhaps my brain tells me to relax because there’s no point worrying about things waiting for me at home (none of which are particularly stressful at the moment but always have the potential to be).
It’s a mystery and an increasingly depressing one.
Any ideas before I splash out on a Travelodge mattress?!
