Re: claim #30889197
I was extremely disappointed to receive your reply to my claim and cannot believe that you call yourselves “Workers Compensation” board. You are clearly working for the companies’ benefits.
I did not go to the hospital because #1, I was leaving a toxic environment to get clean and I was not going to go to another toxic environment that would have further hindered my situation. Number #2 is the fact that everyone knows the best place to get sick is in a hospital and I did not need further chemicals, toxins and or pathogens put into my body. Number #3 is that I know for a fact that the hospital would have pushed to have me drink lots of water and flush my eyes and I refuse to ingest town water as it is full of chemicals that I do not need. My body required good clean air, fresh clean water from my well and lots of rest and soothing music to heal my soul. I did go to the health food store for Homeopathic remedies which helped a little with the inflammation of my face and then I decided to double up on my supplements and after a full two weeks I finally had the red, burning, itching, flaking inflamed skin on my face subside. I then started to feel normal again. And you are telling me that this is acceptable???!!!!!
Did you even take the time to ask any of my co-workers what they experienced in that environment? Yes, I may be a little more sensitive than some but that is because I am chemical and toxin free and I should not have to be subjected to needless pathogens and allergens in my life. I thought it was now illegal for companies to use toxic cleaning solutions in public places….and the majority of public places ban the use of perfumes and chemicals because of allergies. I guess government offices are the exception to the rule. Sad……
I know you will probably file this in File #13 but I hope you will read this and think about these types of claims that are going to become more and more numerous in the future.
Sign me very disillusioned and upset,
