    Post: Fiberglass Boat builder/1973-2000

    Posted by Deborah Lindquist on 9/19/09

    I built boats off/on for a lot of years,at least 10
    different companys.I worked at good & bad ones.If you were
    good, they would pay more. It was a competition trip. I
    worked with some of the same people at different
    company's,in Wa.St. I am going to take a trip to Spokane,
    to look up a few of these people this weekend. I,m very
    curious about their health,& a couple of them saw me drink
    the TOLUENE that day. Sure, I had all kinds of exposures
    through those years, but I never filed a claim with L&I
    until a few weeks after the fact,& they rejected it.I
    thought they were there to help,not screw me over, like
    they did. They had no experience about exposures,or I
    wouldn't be in the predicament I'm in.They could have
    helped me out, but seeing that I had not hired an attorney,
    they probably figured I was just stupid.I had major brain
    damage,but I never knew that until I had MRI'S done in
    2001.But the TOLUENE started destroying me within 2 wks.
    after ingesting it.Conjuntivitis(eyes),central nervous
    system damage,peripheral
    neuropathies,tendonitus,bursitis,carpel tunnel,rotator cuff
    gical disorders,polyneuropathies,nerve
    disorders,bowel,bladder,kidneys,immune disorders,tingling&
    numbness of hands,fingers,feet,toes,circularatory
    strength,pnuemonitis,inflamation of lungs,confusion,slurred
    speach,unsteady balance,irregular heartbeat,& more. But
    every time I went to a Dr., I'd get a new claim no. & a new
    occupational injury,& allways denying exposures,which I
    kept telling them it was. Even after a visit from ecology
    dept., in 1988 &1990 & them seeing we had no protection
    gear, no wash stations, no labels on chemicals & using a
    storm drain in the blding which drained into the river for
    our toxic chemical dumpsite, they got a $2,500 fine &
    Ecology didn't go back there until 2003. I know they can
    check at least every 2 years. Somebody should have kept an
    eye on them. How did this happen,& why is that river the
    6th most endangered in the world,& all those years
    polluting the river, which goes into the Columbia river &
    it,s waterways,which go into Idaho, Oregon,Pacific ocean, &
    British Columbia.If they used that drain when they started
    the company in 1980,they drained all kinds of toxic waste
    for 23 years.Checkout a Columbia river map,
    ( What do you think? I
    think its horrifying & it could have been prevented.Now,
    there's no going back. That isn't all that man got away
    with, either.He needs to step up & take resposibilities for
    his actions, but he will deny any wrong doings,cause a
    person like that couldn't have a consious!!! Just call me
    Toxic mama...
