I was curious, has anyone’s health deteriorated since living in the Philippines? I don’t mean due to age, I mean perhaps do to pollution or stress, or BOTH.
Before I came back here this most recent time in 2010, I was hardly ever sick, not to mention I had no allergies. Now, I have a chronic lung problem where I have to use an inhaler all the time. I wake up 2 times a night to use it, and I have to use a nebulizer about 2 times a month. Moreover I have to take this allergy pill citrizene or something every few days, or I feel like I’m covered int biting ants.
Not only that, I just feel like crap all the time. I work out regularly and I’m a gym goer, but nevertheless, still feel like shit.
So I was just wondering if anyone else has developed weird issues like that. My personal opinion is probably self explanatory and very obvious; which is stress and environment, especially living here in the Manila area. Smog here makes the sky brown in the morning. This whole place reminds me of a world 75 years after a thermonuclear war.
Anyway, if you go to a doctor here they seem more interested in pushing a medication on you and getting you out of the office instead of listening to what your problems are. So many times I have gone into a doctors office thinking they would ask me whats wrong only to do a check up and give me some meds I don’t need.
I hate this place……….Published in
