So, the 1950's house that I am renovating with my husband may be killing us. I think we have been exposed to asbestos!!!! The kitchen floor was made of some material that we could not determine, so my stepfather decided to burn it and said it wasn't asbestos since it burned. Well, stupid us went ahead and stripped the floor and the black "glue"-like adhesive. Now I am terrified that it was indeed asbestos! I know that asbestos is not something to mess with. Now FMS doesn't seem so bad since we will likely develop asbestosis or lung cancer from inhaling the asbestos fibers!!! I can't sleep, I can't eat, I can't think of anything else. I am devastated that we didn't get a professional in there to look at this before we too action. I think all of us are now going to develop a horrible illness all because of a kitchen floor! I feel so guilty. I wish FMS was all I had to worry about now. How do I move forward without this consuming my thoughts? I mean, if you knew you were a ticking time bomb waiting for cancer to develop, how would you move on with life?
