voc problem

We started painting, masked about 20 feet, he started paint, 20 minutes later I was outside and have been there for 6 days.  Paint set me back four years, crawling from bed to bathroom. No air.  Used totally NO VOC paint from Allied paint.  I am mad, disheartened, want my life back.  Can't breathe, can't bowl, can't do anything.  What the heck is in this paint that I was so careful about avoiding and ended up like this?
