Day 88 | Barometric Pressure Changes and Mold

June 5, 2017

This morning went pretty well but by the time the afternoon rolled around I started to feel really tired and discouraged. I decided to take a break from laundry and work on my blog but I just couldn’t think very clearly. Then it started raining really hard. We rushed around to get everything under the rain shelter.

Then it started to thunderstorm. Hmm? I wonder if it was the barometric pressure change that caused me to feel worse?

A lot of mold sensitive individuals report feeling worse when the barometric pressure is falling. The theory is that perhaps the pressure change causes molds to release more spores and toxins into the air. We don’t really know for sure but it seems possible since those same individuals don’t usually have a problem with falling barometric pressure in pristine locations.

I really hope it was just a coincidence though since I would hate to find out that this campground isn’t as pristine as I thought it was. I really don’t want to have to move again for at least a little while. I’m really starting enjoy the stability of staying in one place!

Thankfully, I started to feel a little better after a while but I was still exhausted. Luckily, I have a really sweet husband and he offered to make dinner for us. I was so relieved and grateful! Thank you so much Brett!

    Wow! I hope that the air doesn’t change and that you don’t have to move! I can imagine how hard you life must be, like a gypsy almost, moving from place to place. I’ll be praying.

    Ana, now that you mention this barometric pressure thing, I also don’t feel well on days when that changes. I’ve always wondered about it. So I think you may be right. And I know here in Michigan we have this happen alot. So mold spores probably release regularly. That rotten mold. Seems to catch us coming and going!! UGH!

    I totally agree! When barometric pressure drops, I really feel lousy. Chris, I live in Michigan too. Where abouts are you?
