trust me, I understand all too well. During my pregnancy, I didn't go to any of the work meetings. I went to one a little before I was pregnant, and I almost cried, so I just couldn't bare the embarassment. And at my job, we all sit in quads. Everyone in my quad, pinch their noses, whenever I come in. I've tried to request to move seats, but the HR representitive said she didn't smell anything. I've been to 8 different OB/GYN and 2 dermatologists, and they all say they don't notice anything. It's all starting to get too overwhelming for me. :(
Yeah work is so hard. It's hardest when sitting still around other people and u can see their reactions. Especially in meetings where u r stuck In a crowd. I've turned down jobs based on how seats are arranged.

OMG I know exactly how you feel. I've seen literally 10 doctors and they all can't diagnose me with anything. Next thing you know, I got pregnant. Can you imagine how hard it was dealing with the nasty looks, comments, and bad reactions, all while being pregnant? I was too afraid to commit suicide, but every day I wished that some freak accident would happen and take me away from the unbearable miserable life I had. If it wasn't for my fianc'e I couldn't imagine how I would have done it. We now have a beautiful 3 month old daughter.
The worst part of dealing with PATM is the shame and the guilt. I say shame because I feel so embarrassed about making ppl cough sneeze and itch that it's extremely hard to open up about it and guilt because the feeling you get when someone violently coughs in front you makes me feel terrible. Work places are extremely uncomfortable because It feel like everyone knows you're the source of the reactions. Best advice is open up to the people you're closest with most likely they won't believe you but once you get comfortable breathing around ppl that care about you you'll feel comfortable at the work place. I learned the more relaxed you are the less the reactions are.. But I know it's not easy to relax with PATM because even if we're not getting any reactions we anticipate it.
Good luck God bless
(Continued) of weeks ago I noticed others itching in my presence. I thought I was passing along mites or something but then I noticed it was almost instantaneous. No way mites could transfer that fast. I suspect I itched as toxins in my bloodstream caused me to itch, and as the levels rose my body couldn't keep up and now it is excreting through my skin. I passed the candida spit test with flying colors in a bad way. I am going to detox my body to see if this helps with the condition. I also have tiny white cylinders coming out of my pores. I wonder if this is also an attempt by my body to eliminate toxins?
My face and body started itching a little over a month ago. A cou
I know how you feel. I would quit my job too if I could. Since that's not an option I just try to my best to get through the day and hope I don't get fired. I have never discussed PATM with anybody but people are noticing that I am causing their allergies.
