    Mold in my bathroom...

    We had a mold problem for years.... and I wish someone would have taken care of it a lot sooner than they did. Moving away to college in a mold free dorm room, really opened my eyes to when I came back to my house. I would get all stuffy, and it was harder to breathe, and that was just being home for one day. So really urge them to take care of it. Bleach can kill mold, but if it's really bad, it might not do the trick becuase mold likes to come back.

    Mold in my bathroom...

    Two words: NOT OK!

    I had some mold in a house my friends and I rented in college. The minute I found out about the mold I called my doctor at that time, who told me in no uncertain terms that I needed to get OUT. He actually wrote me a letter and I brought it to the house's owner so my friends and I could break the lease without penalty. I initially thought maybe he would just have me avoid the room with the mold or something, but there was NO WAY he was going to let me stay in that house.

    More recently (as in last week), my apartment in NYC suffered a minor flood because of a fire in my building that triggered the sprinklers. Now my current doctor is insisting that I stay in a hotel nearby until the entire apartment is evaluated for mold and any potential new growth areas cleaned and properly sealed.

    I have another CF friend who goes to a different clinic and has always had great lung function. A couple of years ago she suddenly kept coming down with exacerbations and no one could figure it out. After 4 courses of IVs in 6 months, she finally had a total evaluation of her house and found mold growing in the walls of a bathroom. She and her husband moved, and she returned to normal. That's not to scare you, because she did recover all her lung function and is still doing great, but it does illustrate a situation where mold was undeniably causing immediate issues.

    Bottom line in my opinion: you don't play around with mold and fungus.
