I'm not sure if this is fibro related, or if it's just a peculiarity of mine. I cannot wear synthetic fibers. Rayon, acrylic, 100% polyester, etc, make my skin turn red and I begin to heat up and sweat. I can wear cotton/polyester blends, long as it's mostly cotton, and I can wear rayon skirts, but not tops. Also, and this is truly wierd, knobby silk fabric smells bad to me, like rotten fish. I can smell a rack of them at the store 2 racks away. yuck. Problem is, my niece is getting married New Year's Eve, a big formal wedding, and Aunt Beth is expected to dress up for the occasion. All the pretty dressy things are made of the synthetics I cannot wear. No such thing as a dressy dress in cotton, that I can find, anyway. Silk is ok in small amounts, can't enclose my whole body in it as I feel like I'm cooking. Help??? Any suggestions? I figure I better start looking now! Peace, Beth.
