Stay safe


I am unsure why, or when it’s going to happen. But I just have this strong feeling that I’m going to die at a very young age (I'm not talking about the viruse).
I started doing home chemistry 3 years ago. I was so careful at first I thought hydrochloric acid is the most dangerous chemical in the world and freaked out Everytime when using sodium hydroxide in a synthesis. But now I don't wear gloves anymore i got this lead-acid battery for my birthday and I wish I didn't. reducing lead oxide in the kitchen without wearing a respirator is a bad idea. there's arsenic in small amounts and I inhaled some of powder it probably. PLEASE IF YOU'RE AN AMATEUR CHEMIST DON'T DO THIS TO YOURSELF there's awesome less toxic chemicals out there and I was an idiot. Lead is a neurotoxin that accumulates in soft tissues and bones that's why I think working with cyanide (which is far more toxic) is better (DON'T) cuz if you were poisoned you'll die immediately the compound acts as a non-cumulative poison.
also DON'T TRY EXTRACTING SAFE METALS e.g. zinc, manganese, lithium, silver cuz some additives like CADMIUM, ARSENIC, THALLIUM might be there. even when using 0% Mercury/cadmium battery I always think there's traces of cadmium and thallium in it (I overreact sometimes) BUT DON'T RISK YOURSELF.
now I don't really care if I die That's almost the saddest part. I'm not suicidal. I would never do anything to harm myself or end my life. But I do nothing to prevent my end either. Right now my heart hurts when I laugh sometimes i had to break all my beakers and disposed everything properly )my father's friend is chemical engineer)
I posted this cuz I don't want anyone to struggle.

Understatement of the year. My eyes can not roll back further.
