Two weeks ago we pulled Jason out of school for the next 3 months. His school moved to another building because they are replacing the windows and roof on the town hall where they usually meet. After one week in the other building we noticed his behavior had turned uncontrollable and he was tired all the time. On the norm he is a difficult child, but when he gets around black mold he becomes completely unbearable!
So I says to Caleb that I bet there is mold in that new building (which is, in fact, a very old building). Caleb checked it out and sure enough, the room was covered in black mold. The walls actually looked like they had been sponge painted black. So gross!!!
I don't know how long it will be before he is back to normal. The last episode took about a month before all was well again.
I don't know exactly how we are going to deal with this problem for the rest of our lives. We live in a country where mold and mildew grow abundantly.
I don't know how to help him when he is "under the influence". I can't help but think how it's making our parenting job extremely difficult/impossible.
I don't know what internal damage this is causing in his little body.
I do know one thing...
We are in a pickle and God is the only one who can fix it.
Oh, and we have mold in our bathroom again.
