The Renegade Who Had It Made

  • Mood:
This is kind of an odd question, but is it possible for your workplace to make you sick? Not in the sense of stress or infected coworkers, but the actual physical environment.

I started a new job about six weeks ago, and ever since I've started, I've just had one thing after another. I have yet to have a week where I'm not sick with something. Stomach viruses, vertigo, sinus infections, almost daily name it, I've had it. Nobody else there is sick, so I'm not catching anything from them. What's even weirder is that this place is spotless and cleaned every day. My old workplace was absolutely filthy, but I never got sick there. Though they don't go away completely, my symptoms seem to dramatically lessen almost immediately when I leave.

What's going on?

I tried to Google this, but everything points towards the stress and infected coworkers, and that's not the case here.
