This is going to be one long drawn out story, and I am not feeling so well again, so please bear with me. My husband and I decided back in 2012 that we wanted to buy a trailer with some money we had. We bought one in February of 2012. The second we moved in we noticed a roof leak that had just formed after looking at the trailer and was dripping on our couch as we moved our things in. We had to put a bowl under it. Okay no problem this trailer has a Home Depot roof warranty. Only… they take at least a couple of weeks to schedule it. I start thinking about mold. I want this fixed ASAP. They don’t address my concerns. They come out to “fix the leak” but about a week later its leaking again. They take a couple of months to come out and fix it. The head contractor shows me pictures of the previous water damage the trailer had… wow… scary… In June of 2012 I got pregnant with our daughter who is turning 2 this month. Everything was okay for awhile. In January of 2013 I was 8 months pregnant. We had nowhere else to go. My husband starts waking up at night and he can’t breathe… The trailer had had such poor insulation we had the windows about 13 of them covered with long curtains and towels all winter. well my husband gets up unable to breathe and he opens a window. Lo and behold mold… tons and tons. We lift all curtains and towels… mold everywhere. More mold then I have ever heard of/ seen literally EVER… We have someone come look at the mold he says its cladosporium and he says its not toxic, but when we called him back to run a spore count test he never showed back up and there was nobody else in town to do it. We clean up all of the mold and honestly everything seems OK again. We can’t afford to rip out the mold so just what we visibly can see. We don’t wear masks and we extensively air out our house. I get told that my liver enzymes are looking off and I must be malnourished (I was eating great but shrugged it off). I give birth my beautiful daughter who is born blue with the cord wrapped around her neck. She turns out fine. I have so much fun getting to know my new baby. I learn she is amazing. Then when she is 3 months old I start getting thirsty and not just a normal thirsty. Always thirsty. I want to drown my stomach in water 24/7. It won’t go away. It doesn’t matter what I drink or when… it will NOT end. Then one day. I start feeling like I am loosing my consciousness. I am sure I am going to die I remember thinking. I leave the house in the car but I don’t feel better… (more on why later) I stand there thinking about how much I would miss my husband and baby… the beautiful new life we just created. I start blanking out my blood pressure drops like so low I collapse on my knees (I was checking it with a monitor as this happens). I collapse. I sit there. The ambulance is called. I can barely walk I can barely talk I get hauled away. The dr. calls me a liar he says I am fine and there is no way I can be experiencing what I am indeed experiencing. My parents agree to let us stay 3 days my dad rather begrudgingly. I feel better … much much better… wow the difference. I pack up some things and we leave. We stay around in a weekly place and even rented a room from a family for awhile. We wind up having to stay with my husbands family its now August 2013 by the way. They give us a month. We are able to find a low income one bedroom apartment that seems clean enough to stay. We still had to put many plants and countless amounts of hours airing it out. Its okay. Wow no more mold. Still feeling sick though just not as bad. I forgot to mention about the absolutely horrible reflux and chest pains I am having during this time as well as visual disturbances and the “Stuffed rag in your head feeling” at certain times. I become addicted to detoxing saunas coffee enemas chlorella… you name it I have probably tried it or am maybe even doing it consistently. My never ending thirst went away some time ago but also comes back too. Lung pains too….I feel better sometimes and worse others. Its so hard to figure out why. I read about multiple chemical sensitivity. I realize I am allergic to everything. Meanwhile my husband is feeling a lot of these same things too. He gets jobs but has to quit them shortly because he is so sick from them. We have very little income of any kind. We want to provide for our family but what do we do? We realize our daughter acts weird when she is exposed to things too. We get sicker and sicker the more we try to work and provide for our family. I get glasses and so does my husband which takes care of the visual problems I/ him now have. I would randomly go blind headaches focusing problems etc. I get pregnant again (BIG oops given our situation but am totally in love now) That is January 2014. There has not been one job that him or I could keep yet due to trace mold or sometimes more of trace or more chemicals. At this point my husband and I both realize we are allergic to wheat. Going gluten free alleviates many body pains terrible reflux and chest pains for me. Its amazing. At this point I feel pretty good if I stay home and regularly detox then I am 90% my regular self and truthfully believe with the damage done its just not getting better than that. I was only 22 years old when I got sick and fully believe I almost died and I am 24 now and struggling terribly with 2 daughters my 4 month old and about to turn 2 year old. We try to work somewhere we get loopy we get sleepy we hallucinate we trip over ourselves. We are about to quit at yet another place because its becoming unsafe (we work opposite hours at the same place currently). We SEEM lazy but we are SCARED! Absolutely terrified that we won’t be able to pay our rent and will loose our 2 children that we love dearly. This poisoning is HELL on EARTH!!! My husband even had a job as a bus driver at one point making pretty good money but he had to leave so we never get ahead. These apartments are offering us a 3 bedroom as we speak but we can’t afford and are worried over the extra $150/month to give our children a decent home. We haven’t been able to find a mold doctor who accepts medicaid yet. Very few doctors know about what I am experiencing. My family thinks I am a loony bin. I am completely isolated and alone. This is the worst illness I could ever imagine and no matter how much you fight it does NOT go away! Please I beg you to take mold seriously and do not let this happen to you. My oldest daughter is delayed also and we do not yet know the full extent of her condition but so far she speaks very little. I also forgot to mention about how we discovered our car had mold under its hood just from being in front of that trailer and we had to clean the hell out of it but it still wasn’t good and we finally a few months ago got rid of it. We have lots of debt we can never pay. Does anyone have any advice for me? Does anyone know of mold doctors who help you out and or take medicaid? Possibly some legal advice. Like should I try and sue home depot or how I would go about getting disability or anything to help me? I don’t even know if I want to sue… I would probably rather get disability. I don’t even know how to go about this. Also section 8 is no longer accepting applicants where I live.
