A guide to carbon monoxide...

Carbon monoxide poisoning years ago
I seem to be ok: Could it have affected me more than I realize?

Carbon monoxide poisoning affects people differently. There is no way to know or predict what will occur in the years following poisoning.

Some survivors become aware of their after effects almost immediately after their poisoning. For other survivors the effects may be subtle and it may take a long time to understand that they have been impacted. Other survivors may never "connect the dots" and realize they have been living in the shadow of carbon monoxide poisoning. There are also a good number of survivors that do not seem to be affected at all.

The problem is, carbon monoxide statistics are unreliable, so there is no real way to know what percentage actually fall into each of the four groups.

It is well known that poisoning can damage the brain, nervous system, endocrine system, heart, and other cells. If the functioning of any system in the body or brain is impacted, even in a subtle way, it can have an impact on the health and life experience of a suvivor.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can impact the life of a survivor in many subtle yet significant ways. If a survivor knows what to look for they may be able to look back on their life and come to understand that they have in fact been influenced by the their poisoning.
