Does anyone have trouble with fluorescent lighting?
I'm very sensitive to noise and light. I don't like to be, but that's how it is. I share desks at work and I work in a network of open cubicles. After I leave, there's a nightshift that comes in. I have the sets of fluorescent lighting turned off around my desk because of the glare and power of the lights. We recently had a change in the night team. The new people probably think it's just not bright enough. I come to work one day and the light above my desk is on. My boss took out the lights. Next day, the lights are back on and not only that, the other set is on too. This time, my boss doesn't take them out but sends an email somewhere.
I'm now on the 2nd day of this nightmare. I feel like I'm sitting in a stadium with all the flood lights on me....for the entirety of the 8 hrs I'm at work. I'm starting to get a headache. My boss is in an all day meeting. My other boss said he'll see what's up. So far nothing. I'm not sure how long I can hold up.
The bad thing is, no one else seems to have a problem so I seem like 'the one with the low tolerance' and 'complaining and making trouble'. Education is lacking in this country. One of my deskmates did not know that long term exposure to bright lighting will lead to cataracts, headaches, stress, eye fatigue etc. For Pete's sake, there's an entire wiki entry for this. Why does NO ONE seem the least bit concerned and NO ONE is experiencing any health issues except for ME?
