OP and her roommate had been talking about getting a small pet for their apartment. OP preferred a bird due to her allergies to small mammals, and her roommate was well aware of OP's allergies and health condition.

OP's roommate adopted a rabbit without prior notice. This led OP to establish some rules regarding the rabbit's presence in their shared living space.
All roommates believe OP's requests are unreasonable, and OP feels the need to explain her allergies
The OP is feeling frustrated because their roommate has chosen to keep a rabbit in the living space they share
OP is wondering whether she are in the wrong and is planning to discuss the matter with her roommates
It's wrong to bring a pet into a shared living situation without obtaining agreement from all the roommates involved.
The only solution for OP is either the rabbit go, or to seeks a resolution that involves her being removed from their lease.
OP with the medical condition is not at fault for not wanting a small mammal around due to health concerns
The OP could consider obtaining an air filter for the room and using a door draft stopper
OP is not being unreasonable for considering breaking their lease
OP needs to talk to her landlord about her health issues
It's concerning that OP's roommate is trying to declare their pet an emotional support animal to gain certain legal rights with landlords.
OP's demands are not unreasonable at all. She has legitimate concerns about her health and well-being due to severe allergies, and these concerns should be respected by her roommate and other housemates.
It's disappointing that her roommate made such a significant decision without considering the consequences it would have on OP's life within their shared. OP should explore her options, including discussing the situation with her realtor and considering whether breaking or terminating the lease is the best course of action for her well-being.
Living in a place where she feels trapped and constantly worried about their health is not a sustainable situation, and she has every right to seek a more suitable living arrangement.
