    So I have two very time intensive classes this term (4 in total). I have 3 essays due in the next 24 hours and about 300 pages to read. So I felt it the perfect time to get a debilitating fever/head cold. I can't really even focus on the readings, let alone write coherently.

    But enough of that madness. Now I am helping my wife rip up all the carpet, padding, and bottom 2 feet of the walls because it has a slow leak down there and we found mold. Grr.

    I just want some nyquil and a nap. Grr

    Edit: it's our basement. Forgot to mention it. Sorry I'm sick.

    Sucks, but better to get it done, I know how bad the mold can be in the long term

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Damn. Sounds like me, though I don't have as good an excuse! Get well soon!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Man... I'm so glad I'm out of school. I hated multiple heavy load classes in the same term. Sounds like you need a pipe. If you're like me though, there's no pipes when being sick. Good luck with the classes, and good luck with the mold removal.

    Praying for you, wyfbane. In those kinds of situations I always tell myself that it will pass.... eventually.

    Your situation is a perfect example of Kelly's Law. Murphy's Law says "if it can go wrong, it will". Kelly's Law says "Murphy was an optimist". Persevere.

    Maybe the mold was making you sick. Now you're getting rid of it. That's what I'd tell myself, anyway.

    Thank you everyone! We have most of the bad stuff out. Need to wait til I am well to dig new drainage on the end of house. At least now we can instantly deal with any water that comes in.

    You guys are the greatest!

    Wyfbane, hang in there. I remember when I was in school and face that evil known as papers, reading, longer papers and even more reading. You will make it, and someday you may even look back at this time and be glad that you were able to overcome such difficulties. Keep taking those steps forward.

    My sympathies! We had a slow leak in a first floor closet some years back. Ended up gutting it out to the studs and building it out into a bathroom. Always wear a respirator when doing stuff like that.

    Yup, did the mold thing last year in the basement after the ice on the roof took out a vent stack seal.
    I didn't think of it at the time and didn't wear any respirator, got a lung infection for being stupid.

    Classes, mold, carpeting, fever, essays,,,,my sympathies.
