Re: mold question
Hi, new here and just came across this thread. I moved into a house 3 years ago that had damp and mold (although we were the first occupants of the house), i was pregnant at the time and so my immune system was compromised too. Although we complained about the mold, the landlord just painted over the problem. My health started to deteriorate and i went from a normal, healthy individual who never had any asthmatic history or symptoms, to someone who cant even get dressed without experiencing severe breathing difficulties. My "asthma" symptoms became so chronic that i use a strong powder inhaler twice a day, take cortisone tablets daily, take antihistimines and use a gas inhaler about 3 times a day!
Out of desperation, i moved 4 days ago, into a thatch house with NO damp! However, although i am 99.9% convinced that my symptoms are caused from the damp and mold, i have had severe breathing problems in my new home. Could the thatch be causing this as i haven't given my lungs a chance to heal, or could it just be the stress and exertion from the move?
Please help if any of you have a similar history. Thanks.
