I don’t suppose what it is about Summer illnesses, but I guess that they’re far more offensive than Winter sickness ever is, and something about laying in bed, hearing people outdoors having a relaxing time, seeing the sun pouring endlessly through the windows, and being unable to find a comfortable warmth despite the unending heat is pretty frightening to me, I suppose. I’ve observed over the past ten years that I seem to endure at least 1 severe Summer illness every single Summer, however it’s constantly been a true mystery to myself and others how things get so exhausting when the times are so good. It was only recently that I realized an unfortunate truth – the measures that normally keep myself and others comfortable in the Summer also make myself and others seriously ill. I’m speaking, of course, of air conditioning. You see, it became clear that every time I fall sick it’s while in the hottest and most humid week of the Summer. I started to guess that the moist and warm air outdoors was causing these respiratory upsets, until the day that my air conditioning failed, however during those ungodly boiling hours, my illness cleared up and I was able to breathe better than I had in weeks! Suddenly it dawned on myself and others that every time I spend several hours in artificially cool indoor air, my ability to breathe severely decreases. I started to ponder what downside effect air conditioning could possibly have on my breathing quality, and came to the sudden conclusion that dry, cool air really has deleterious effects over time. I did a little research and sure enough, there is a well known connection between abundant A/C and sinus infections. Now I have to decide between indoor comfort and effortless breathing all Summer long.
