Your nose can usually detect the smell of the wet spot (bacillus?) even when the jars are closed fairly tight. It has a very distinct, nasty, rotten apple smell. There is a difference between noticing that a room or box has a rotten smell to it and sticking your nose in an open jar of unknown fungus/bacteria and taking a "big whiff". My friend uses smell as her last check upon birthing a jar. If a jar looks healthy, but has any smell other than that soft earthy oder when opened, it is tossed in the trash. An unhealthy looking jar never gets opened... my friend autoclaves the "ugly" jars at 28psi for 1hr then tosses them.

bacteria fumes in a jar can knock you off your feet sometimes. I think that generally, though, it is not really that dangerous to take a quick whiff of your jar to see if it was contaminated...just dont huff that shit. and if you get a really bad whiff, gargle with mouthwash or peroxide.

Well i have another problem. After they gave me the IV and injected me with all those medications i started to fell better. That was last night at like 1:00 am. Its now 10:30 pm and the same things are happening to me again. Neck is becoming soar again, throat is drying out, and my ears wont stop ringing. I belive that the antiboitics didnt take care of everything. I think its comming back again!

I think you better get your ass back to the ER!!!!

You better tell them the truth or something close to the truth.
That you breathed some contams at least...like mold or bacteria.
You had this jar that had this nasty green or whatever colored mold.
And that you breathed it in.
That you think this is causing you problems.
I'm not your Dad.....I'm probably old enough to be your Dad though.
Please get some help....I'd hate to see anyone have the pain and suffering that you are having.
Hope to hear how you are doing tomorrow.
Take care.

i was going to post a thread like this to see if maybe this is
why i haven't had a solid shit in a week.. guess i know now.
luckily my case isn't as bad as yours... try to get the doc to
prescribe Prednisone.. but be careful with it, it's habit forming
and will cause "roid rage".. small price to pay for keeping your
throat open though. also, when you take antibiotics it's very
important not to skip a dose or cut it short because you're
feeling better. that is asking for the resistant cultures to make
their come back.. making you sicker than before and longer.

Smell the jars like they teach you in Chem. Lab:

Hold the jar away from your nose (12inches at least) and use your hand to waft the smell to your nose.

Prednisone is a very powerful steroid with significant side effects. Do not lie to the doctor, and do not assume that you know what will cure you. They should have done a blood test to look for nasties by now. Remember, this could be bacterial, fungal, or something completely unrelated that just happened around the same time you opened the jar.

it's also very possible that you could have been very allergic to the mold or bacteria that may have been in your jars causing you to react differently then some other people may.

At the risk of sounding like everyone's father:

When we sterilize substrate and make conditions perfect for the proliferation of mycelium, it's also perfect for concentrated growth of any other opportunistic organism--like unwanted bacteria, mold and fungus.

You're not dealing with a singular pathogenic spore or cell. You are dealing with a STOCKPILE!! You have mass produced the shit.

IT CAN KILL YOU EASILY!

The shit that makes us sick exists in nature in parts per million. This is a scant amount. And as a result, we don't get sick too often.

Our sterilized jars of substrate, if innoculated with the WRONG organism becomes a lethal dose. This isn't a stray spore entering our lungs. THIS IS A HIT OF CONCENTRATED POISON!

We unwittingly create a potent biological time bomb. The amount of bacteria that we can grow in a jar is present in numbers higher than the population of people on this planet.

An analogy for those unconvinced, breathing off the top of a contaminated jar is about as intelligent as licking a petri-culture of HIV virus.

Read the teks and use common sense!! If a jar becomes contaminated DON'T open it up. PRESSURE COOK IT, and dispose of the contents as soon as it comes out. Use a pot holder. Either down your in sinkerator, or outside to the dumpster.

If you even THINK a jar MIGHT be contaminated, don't gamble with your life. You should almost be able to smell it through the metal lid. And DEFINITELY through the innoculation holes we drill in the lid if the tape is removed.

IF YOU'RE GONNA SMELL IT, HOLD THE JAR A FOOT FROM YOUR FACE AND G E N T L Y WAFT A WHIFF TOWARDS YOUR NOSE.

These contaminated jars are like the product of a biological weapons company. Only difference is we make it by accident.

Jaybin, you're fuckin' lucky to be alive. If you suspect contams, ditch it.

I'm amazed by how some people ask if a known contaminated mushroom MIGHT be safe to consume. And they're encouraged by responses of those who have done so, and lived.

WHY BE STUPID AND RISK IT?

Ditch it. That way you'll be alive.
