From January 2015 until a few months ago, I ran a Facebook group called Mold Avoiders. It eventually became one of the largest mold groups on Facebook, with more than 9000 members.

Although the group was in some respects a success in that many people stated that it was helpful to them, it also took up a very large amount of my time. Toward the end, I was spending more than 40 hours a week answering questions in the group and dealing with administrative issues.

By early 2007, I had been sick with the disease now officially called “ME/CFS” for more than a decade. I was in bed and comatose almost all of the time and seemed to be getting sicker and sicker by the minute.

It was at this time that I first listened to the soundtrack for the Broadway musical “Grey Gardens.” The show is based on the famous documentary movie of the same name, and depicts two impoverished but formerly upper-crust relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who lived reclusively from the 1950’s to the 1970’s in a falling-apart mansion in the exclusive vacation community of East Hampton, NY.

Recognition of the issue of mold-related illness has gone much more mainstream over the past year, and many new practitioners have begun focusing on the illness.

This is not an easy condition to treat, however, and knowledge about the most effective therapies and approaches is still being developed.

During their first four years of marriage, Almanzo Wilder and Laura Ingalls Wilder had far more than their fair share of difficulties.

Several years’ worth of their crops were destroyed by hail or hot dry winds, in most cases just a few days before harvest. They both became sick with diptheria that kept them close to death in bed for weeks, with lingering symptoms for a long time afterwards. Almanzo acquired partial paralysis that periodically interfered with his ability to walk or use his hands. Their only son died of spasms a few weeks after his birth. Their very nice house dramatically went up in flames and burned to the ground.
