I have developed polycythemia and associated problems through my wife's smoking over 34 years. I tried in vain to get her to give up who was not realizing what secondhand smoke was doing to me.

I allowed a homeless man to stay at my house provided he smoke outside. He is gone but I still feel eye irritation and extreme fatigue. I do have heart disease, allergies and had a mastectomy for a small noninvasive cancer. Also I wonder if third hand marijuana smoke is hazardous.
