Exactly... I do get the headaches and sometimes worse (almost migraine)... At my office, I’ve been fortunate to be able to have almost all the fluorescents off, and they let us bring in incandescents (many of us suffer from the same thing).

My husband and I are all about saving energy — we compost, recycle, use water cisterns, save seeds, all of that. The house came with a couple of fluorescent lights — in the kitchen and AZ Room. That’s fine, I just don’t want them where I read or sit for long.

You're a bit beyond me in conservation, but I detest the overhead fluorescents in my office and do not use them.

Forcing CFLs on people who suffer from them -- maybe this needs to be a court challenge.

The danger of compact fluorescent lighting

Snip: Also new research has come to light that indicates that CFLs emit a high humming sound that is not in our range of hearing but is in the range of hearing of cats and dogs. Can you image hearing a high pitched humming sound all day long. It would be enough to drive you nuts! Many pet owners report that their cats or dogs do not want to be in rooms with CFL bulbs on and will become anxious if they are forced to be.
