Heres what happened. I am a 22 year old female.
I have had a sore throat since tuesday morning. I now have strep throat, or what feels like strep throat/the flu. I am weak, always tired, and my throat hurts. Ive been lazing around home and bed since tuesday.
On tuesday afternoon I actually didnt feel too bad. I just had a sore throat a little bit.
My boyfriends house has been so hot and so he went in the attic and realized the insulation was not installed properly, and it needed to be pulled back to allow ventilation. So he asked if I could help him and I did. We were up there for approx ten mins and couldnt stand the heat anymore and the dust. We didnt have masks on while we were up there.
He started looking at the binder he got when he bought the house and there was a panflet about abspestos. and some of the insulation up there looked a lot like what the picture showed.
Now I am really really scared. My dad said it causes cancer and can make you very sick, We were up there for 10 mins but he said it doesnt matter. I was coughing up there a lot from the dust.
My boyfriend on the other hand says it takes a lot of exposure to get sick from it.
What should I do? I am really scared and I dont know if its all in the head but my chest did feel a little tight and my breathing a little different.
