After years of being on FML, I finally get featured! It started about 2 weeks after we got here and I basically have hives, am very itchy, and have severe allergies. All this has made me very depressed for months I just stay at home with the windows closed and the air cleaner on because it gets worse whenever I go outside. So the Army is letting us apply for "compassionate reassignment" which lets us move to our next army base earlier than we are supposed to. Hopefully it gets approved!

It might be 2 years before your husband get's stationed somewhere else, however you can move earlier. If your health is being affected by the air quality you need to give moving now some serious thoughts.

Just because they technically "can," doesn't mean it's feasible. Example being you CAN stick your hand in lava, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea. Finances, lack of family, living costs, marital strain, risk to mental health, no guarantee they won't be allergic to something wherever they move to... it's not exactly as easy as you make it sound.

Fill your home with air purifiers, its extremely common to have them in Korea. If you are unable to move, you'll also probably need the face masks when you go out. Perhaps find another location an hour or more away from your current? Your husband may have to live on base, but if you're only an hour out near cleaner air, you could always visit evening/weekends. I hope it works out for you. I'm sorry it has caused you to be sick!
