Homesick: Living with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
Imagine your house is making you dangerously sick. Common products like paint, carpeting, new building materials and insecticides are now your worst enemies. Your bones ache, you’re feverish, you suffer from extreme headaches, disabling fatigue, mental confusion, asthma and nausea. The longer you stay in your house, the sicker you get but you can’t imagine how or where you’re going to find a safe home. You are one of the millions suffering from the silent epidemic of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS).
In Homesick, Susan Abod hits the road to learn whether other people with MCS are finding safe housing. On her journey to the Southwestern United States, Susan meets people from all walks of life. Their living quarters range from a house on stilts to tents and a teepee.
Join Susan as she explores a little known world and discovers how people are coping with this growing epidemic.

Thankful that he has stuck with me through this journey. Thank you dear Susan for enlightening so many with your courage and love.
I appreciate the personal stories of the people who were willing to be filmed for the project. The personal stories with Susan's music and singing mixed in make it a very interesting look into the lives of those suffering with MCS.
With current estimates putting the numbers of people affected by MCS at as much as 15%, I would recommend this film to anyone and everyone who is concerned about the environment, their own health and the health of future generations.
The Homesick documentary is a remarkable fabric of stories woven from the lives of the many who deal with it every day and if you watch this documentary, you're likely to make some subtle or not so subtle changes to your own lifestyle. I watched it because I wanted to know more. I didn't expect that it would make a profound change in my perspective about living in a contemporary society where we have real choices about our exposure to chemicals.
