I’ve been a pretty healthy human being for my entire life. In fact, I’ve never even been in the hospital. I’ve never had a major surgery, I’ve never broken a bone, and I’ve never had weird illnesses that required me to be held up in a medical facility. Thank God I haven’t had to endure all of that stress. Well, I should say I didn’t have to… Until now. out of the blue, the past year has been full of medical mysteries in my world. All of a sudden my body you rebelled against me. The biggest problems are in my chest and head. It feels like every single day I wake up with the worst head cold of my entire life. My sinuses are constantly inflamed, my nose is always running, I’ve been hacking out a long for well over a year now, and frankly I can’t even breathe some days. I’ve been going to doctor after doctor trying to figure out what is going on with my respiratory health, but no one has been helping. Finally I figured out what needed to be done all on my own. I was in the attic poking around one day and happen to jostle the air duct hanging overhead. As the piece of metal swung around dust and debris went flying everywhere… and it shocked me. It seems like all of this dirt and nasty garbage was falling straight out of the air duct as I stared at it. It was in that moment that I realized I had no idea if the air ducts had ever been cleaned before. The prior owners didn’t do a great job caring for the house. Why would I have taken care of the air ducts? I called my HVAC company immediately and had the air ducts scrubbed out within the week. I’m happy to report that I can breathe easily again.
