Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 50 People

    At My Wits End...

    When I was about 13 I was living in a house that had mold in it. Of course I was unaware of this..so I suffered with sinus problems for years before I knew what was going on. I was on countless allergy meds but nothing worked. My doctor ordered a cat scan and it ended up...
