Default Chlorine and Neuropathy

About 6 years ago I had a swimming pool company and was exposed to all kinds of chemicals especially chlorine. I did not think much about it at the time but looking back on it now I probably passed out 20 times starting with a coughing fit. Very scary stuff, I had to get stitches 3 times. My MD said it was due to a mucous plug ,and I didn't know any better. Since I quit working on pools and spas I have not had 1 single pass out episode. Just wondering what you guys think about this?

Sounds scary to me...

Here is an interesting read:

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.

Chlorine and other pool chemicals are definitely bad news. Chlorine in particular is really awful, and I've heard terrible stories similar to yours.
