We have stachybotrys chartarum in our duplex.
Our landlord has been kind of dumb about it.
And by kind of dumb I mean "you have negative energies and are probably causing the mold yourself" dumb. Yeah. She told me my 'negative attachments' are causing the black mold.

I'm just like

In awe

Of my situation right now.
See, we did all the right steps. We contacted the city inspector, we contacted a lawyer, we asked for prorated rent for the decreased value of our home.
We took a mold test and sent it in, paying for express testing so we'd get the results right away. We've been documenting everything.

But you know

When I start having panic attacks for 1.5 hours and have literally never had one that bad before?
When I go to the ER and they take chest x-rays and EKGs and blood tests and prescribe me HUGE DOSES of steroids to get rid of 'small specks' in my lungs?? TO A TYPE 1 DIABETIC?

Yeah I'm gonna be god damn pissed.

I'm just f*cking so mad

Yes

So like

I dunno

We just found more mold in a petri dish that WE DIDNT EVEN SWAB OR LEAVE OPEN

Like we prepared the solution and just put the lid back on to let it cure and I was gonna just swab it later, but never did.

IT GREW SO MUCH MOLD

"Small specks in the lungs" sounds really scary.

I look up the reviews on the apartments we live in from time to time and more than one has reported instances of black mold. I personally have never encountered it. We have lived here like two and a half years now. There are four separate buildings, though.

I hope you never have to deal with it.

My fiance has had bronchitis for over 3 weeks now

And yeah they didn't test the small lung specks because I went in for a drating panic attack over the mold in the first place, they probably didn't want to traumatize me any more than I already was

Holy poo, that is 50 shades of drated up. Your landlord is an asshole.

bronchitis is ghastly and I am sending recovery wishes

Yeah, I remember my bronchitis which caused me to strain my rib so much it felt broken. That was very painful. I thought I would never stop coughing.

So what happens now? Is it going to be hard to break the lease?

I hope your landlord electrocutes herself on bad energy.

I think mold was growing on my shower curtain.

Do I have to buy a new one?

Okay so like she said she would pay for a motel for us to stay at during the next few days
We decided to ask her to stay on the other side of the duplex (because it's empty) so that we wouldn't have to deal with paying for the room and then also to see if we found any other issues on the other side

We found. Over. 125. DEAD flies on the other side all over the floor.
The air was thick.
It was drating disgusting
And freaked us the drat out.

We gotta get out of here I s2g

Isn't there a Tenant something you can complain to?
1 month ago - Thursday 10/10/19 - 3:17:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
No laws against it there i take it?

Here is just illegal to rent out places that got black mold cause of the health hazards

I'd suggest finding a new place to hunker down in

Far out that is sh*t. Sorry mate. How stressful. Good luck

Basically no I mean there aren't any laws in IL about black mold

It's super dumb
I'm gonna call my renter's insurance place and see if they say anything

That's an abusive-ass landlord and I hope you're out of there soon chica
1 month ago - Thursday 10/10/19 - 5:43:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Even if there are no laws regarding black mold specifically, I'm sure the landlord is required to keep the place in a habitable condition.

This is deplorable. I hope you find a safe place to live soon (and a landlord who isn't a psycho).

My company does mold assessments.

I know you said you don't want advice, but I'm here and can talk to an expert, if necessary.

If I'm not around, PM cuck.
