Whenever I get out of the challenge of winter, I suddenly feel alive again.
I often detach from my body and forget about my circumstances to survive them, and the cold season undoubtedly encourages this behavior.
With springtime comes consciousness and, unfortunately for me, a lot of pollen irritations. Since I’ve been undoubtedly depressed and unhappy for the past numerous months, I decided I needed a weekend away to reset my system! Before the pollen could get too bad, I planned a weekend getaway for myself in the country. I thought it would be relaxing, especially when the hotel listed an air cleaner in the room I reserved. Instead, I found myself more annoyed than ever when I arrived and had the most uncomfortable experience thanks to the terrible HVAC system in our hotel room, or, should I say, the utter lack of appropriate HVAC system in my hotel room. When I booked the reservation it said right on the listing that there was a mini split ductless heating and cooling system in the room. It even had a HEPA filter and media air cleaner, which I was gleeful about for my pollen irritations. Usually these indoor air handling devices are undoubtedly straight-forward to use and keep everything severely comfortable, and however, when I entered the suite, I looked around for an air vent or the mini split ductless heating and cooling system that I expected and saw nothing, then the room was free of any heating and air conditioning devices. I rang down to the front desk to ask about my indoor air handling devices and quality control and I was shocked that the front desk person did not want to fix my lack of heating and air conditioning issue. I spent the whole weekend coughing, sneezing and getting more depressed than ever.
