    I was exposed to 2.5 cans of brake cleaner aerosol at my work. 3 of us became ill, 2 of us hospitalized. I would like to know what the heck I can do to make my employer pay for this. I have been off work since Oct. 18th 2008 to present.
    I have no taste buds off an on since this. My body feels like I have been dipped in a vat of aneseptic from head to toe. I have burning in my feet. Pain in my arms and legs and my skin looks all wrinkled like a woman in her 70 or 80s. I am 50. I have trouble concentrating. My internal thermostat is all wacky like I am below my normal 98.6. With the amount of exposure in the hospital I had to get insulin shots and also vitamin D. I am not diabetic. Received oxygen and nebulizer treatments for 6 days.

    Fabreze- BEWARE-I changed out a plug-in fragrance and got a little on my arm. I ended up with a third degree burn on my skin (2″ long). That night I ended up in the ER with an irregular heart beat. I’m a healthy 50 year old (no drugs or medication) yet the doctor asked me several times if I do drugs. BEWARE!

    I contacted your office back in 1991. Found your letter. I was exposed to carbon disulfide back then spilled it on my legs while working. I did not have a good attorney and did not receive a good comp settlement. I did appeal however my illness caused me not to understand what they were doing to me. Now I have been diangnosed with autonomic neuropathy and cancer in one of my legs that I had the spill on. No one will help me I have tried so much to get help everyone just says too old of a case. I have written a report of my situation over the years are you interested in reading it? Thank you Dorothy KOnrad
