Moving out to the country (or the sticks, as every one of us love to call it) was a major shock to our system. I thought it would be a fine plan for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was our respiratory troubles. I worked from house on our ipad, which i could literally do from anywhere. And seeing as how our husbandry & I didn’t have strong roots in the community, it seemed love a cool plan to up & transfer out to a more rural area. There were no pizza delivery sites out this far, & the nearest Regal Cinema was an minute away. The air quality was fresh & scrub out there, I felt the difference within the first day. My lungs had been weak our whole life, however living in the city with the most horrible air quality, the smog & smoke & pollution, made it worse. The natural ventilation out here, with the breezes coming in off the fields smelling lightly of corn, did wonders for our health. Once Winter came, things changed up, & every one of us had to stay inside running the heating system for a couple of weeks on end. I noticed that while being cooped up inside with the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system running, our lungs started feeling worse. I suspected that this might imply a problem with the ventilation in our Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system, feeding us dirty air, however I wasn’t sure what to do about it. After all, this far out there wasn’t a nearby Heating, Ventilation, & A/C maintenance shop every one of us could call up for a house call.
