Post: SUICIDE WHILE EXPOSED TO TOXIC MOLD
Posted by Karen on 6/23/03
I have always been a very strong, independant and capable
woman who could basically do anything I set my mind to do.
I was very outgoing, I loved people and I loved to laugh
and play, I worked out at the gym at least 4 times a week,
roller bladed, danced, took karate lession, yoga, etc.
Within a year of purchasing my condo all of this stopped.
I became a total recluse, severely depressed and had
suicidal thoughts frequently. I couldn't understand what
was going on with me. There was nothing going on in my
life for me not to want to live anymore. My fatigue became
so bad that everything I did became monumental. I had joint
and muscle pain, severe memory loss and confusion, I lost
my jog becasue I couldn't function at work, I had boils on
my face, night sweats, insomnia, digestive problems, chest
pains, panic attacks, and the list goes on. My family and
friends watched this transition and couldn't believe it.
My whole personality changed in front of their eyes. To
make a long story short, I took an overdose of pills to
kill myself. Thank God I was not successful. I have read
about others who had also attempted suicide or experienced
suicidal thoughts while exposed to toxic mold. In fact,
several months ago I read a post on the toxic chat board
that a mother and daughter had committed suicide while
living in a mold environment and their family was crying
out for help and information. They wanted to know if mold
could have caused this. Well, I am convinced that it can
and does! If you have had this same experience of know of
anyone else who has had suicidal thoughts or attempts,
please email me, I'd love to hear from you.
