I know black mold can cause respiratory problems, but how about mood swings/depression?

A family living in a subdivision behind us has been dealing with black mold in their attic for about 2 years. The contractor did not vent the attic correctly, not at all really, and now they are dealing with a lawyer who has advised them not to do anything until a lawsuit they have filed is decided. (The contractor finally came back and vented the attic correctly, but the mold is still there.)

She is in her mid to late 30s and lately has shown signs of very serious mood swings. I know she is worried about this problem, but I am wondering if there is any possibility that the continuous mold problem might be increasing these reactions.

She is beginning to have numerous quarrels with other neighbors who were good friends. They are not sure what is happening and are quite worried about her. I know many would say move out until something is done, but I don't think that is one of their options.

If everything has already been filed and the house has been checked out by the inspectors, would they risk losing the lawsuit if they fixed it and got rid of the mold? I don't think I would risk my physical or mental health by continuing to live in the house the way it is. What would you do?

For the sake of their health, they should move, but sometimes the solutions are not that simple depending on their circumstances.

I think I would move out untill sorted, but she sounds very poorly and maybe has depression that is changing her moods, she needs to see the doctor pronto.

i think everyone gets mood swings and depression at some point in their life. whether or not mold could be the cause, i don't know. i have mold and no money to get it removed or inspected. i wish it were legal to just live outside with your children without getting in trouble with the state. then i wouldn't have to worry about mold but misquitos instead

I do not know enough to comment on this except the woman needs to make sure she has eliminated other causes for he illness.

I honestly don't know if mould can cause these types of issues, perhaps she has something else going on in her life that may not be helping?

I would think the mood swings are from all the frustration of the situation. Yeah I think I would just get it fixed as soon as possible.

I would document everything in writing and with lots of photographs. I would make sure the lawyer is there at the time to sign as a witness. I would also have other unbiased witnesses to sign everything. Then I would have that mold removed!
