The place was alive with mold and now I'm sick.

Don’t be an idiot! I would put on my mask. No my Clients would not be in a House that has that level of mold.

You might need to invest in a supplied-air respirator. Be safe.

Roy, it sounds like you have a typical flue.
mine just ran its course.
30 days from end to end.

I mentioned to Nick that I did not want to do the required clean air cert, that I am highly sensitive to mold.
I exhibit signs of pustules in ear pathways, under my eyelids and secrete fluids form facial orifices with a halh mask.
Now I ware full suit and mask. .
I wear a full face mask with full full PPE. I have no exposed skin except for the little on my wrists.
It have reduced the infections by 95 percent.

Best to you and yours buddy.
get well. Everything will pass. The bird flue is making its rounds this year.

Try not to ever take antibiotics. Reserve them for when you really need them. Last week we had a member we all know and love who got a foot infection and had to have his foot amputated a few days ago.

When my kids were little and sick with a cold, I would share their silverware to build up my immune system.

Please note what NICK said extremely important .

I was on cipro for over four years to help get rid of a rare infection. It didn’t work.
However, Now I don’t take them unless I’m near death.
It’s been over a week since I was exposed to that dump and I’ still sick.
But a lots better.

H1N1 like virus has hit Alberta area

That is highly recommended. Only take antibiotics as a last recourse. Beef and chicken are given more antibiotics than a human takes in a life time. we eat the meat and become immune to a degree. Very good point Nick.

We are all here for you buddy.
Just don’t sneeze at the screen, OK.:wink:

Who got their foot amputated?

I picked up H1N1 mid November, I’m still not completely over it, going out and working for half a day seems to set me back a couple days of recovery, but ya know, bills have to be paid.

i gave up 3 hi’s and worked sick only to end up in bed.
I had an expert witness to do. 2 days in before i was called.
In bed for 3 days afetr that.

When I feel my lungs and thoat being hindered by mold, I get out of the house as fast as I can. That stuff can be bad news.

A few years back, I told an inspector I was mentoring that when he walks into a home which has a lot of mold, he needs to go back to his truck and get his respirator. Several months later he was in a moldy house and did not put on his respirator. He got sick and could not work for over a week. Now when he even comes close to mold, his nose starts to bleed. His hope of a big career in mold has ended. Sad but true.

I do not know about you James, John, Nick and colleagues, but 3 years prior, almost four but I had been a member for several months and Roy was mentoring me, before mold became an hot issue, several of the INACHI MEMBERS use to scoff at mold, saying it was fear mongering to create an added inspection industry benefit.

Geese Louise the back and forth that use to erupt with some threads going over the top.
Any one remember?:roll:

Some things I learned early in life: Is that we can all be ignorant about a certain subject, but we can fix that by actually learning the subject fully. Also you cannot fix the stupid, because there is more than ignorance troubling them.

Well put.

The student you mentored maybe fortunate having to reallocate his business plans. An error in dangerous conditions can prove to be life changing.

Things happen for a reason.
When you get lemons, make lemon-aid.:wink:

Best regards Mr. B.

Ain’t that the truth. I’ve learned!
I’m still sick been running a fever for over 10 days at about 100 deg. Not to mention the other symptoms.
Went back to the doc today and he says it is bacterial or fungal that is causing my problem. I’m over two weeks into this.
The chest xrays came back clear. Good!
From now on it is tyvek suit with gloves, top of the line respirator.
One suit per crawl.

Roy, glad to hear the chest X-rays were clear. My wife is a nurse and there are some real horror stories about mold.

We are pulling for you!
