    You might have been exposed to sweet gas/petroleum gas/LELs -- they're different from H2S but they can also be deadly. People are exposed when they open the thief hatch on an oil or water tank, like in this video.

    I'm a reporter for Inside Energy, a non-profit journalism organization, and I wrote a story about chemical exposures in the oilfield. You can read the story here: http://bit.ly/WorkerInfo

    I'm hoping to talk to more workers who have been exposed -- if you want to talk, email eguerin@insideenergy.org or text "safety" to 701-354-4414.

    I don't recall! Could memory loss have been caused by brain damage? I have felt dizzy and light headed when I jumped out of bed in a hurry. Is there a class action lawsuit I can sign into against the mattress company. It is surly caused by them!
