the train was travelling and because its underground and i know that the underground is very old and read that there is asbestos in the underground. I used to smoke
Dr. David what do you think the dust that filled the train was? And based on what i have told you that the underground is filled with asbestos as it was built long time ago. Im worried.
when you say drain do you mean train?
i don't understand what you said sorry you think the dust was from the train itself. Because it looked like it came from outside not in the train its as if the train traveled through a load of dust?
i understand what you are saying but when i experienced the dust exposure it was while the train was moving. And i have read that asbestos is everywere on the underground including the tunnels were the trains are travelling through i don't know what to do.
thanks for the advice doctor, but i just would like to know what you think that dust could of been as asbestos is present in the underground including tunnels.
i understand doctor but i have read that asbestos is in the underground including tunnels?
copied and pasted this from the website
Asbestos is "all over the place" on London Underground and the east end of the Central line is "in a bad way", a Tube worker has told International Business Times UK.
Alan Jenkins, a Tube signal worker and RMT union activist, said: "[The east end of the Central line] is in a bad way. [The asbestos] is above and beyond anywhere else on the whole of the Underground system."
Jenkins said the asbestos runs all the way along the tunnel walls from Mile End station to the east end of the line.
"They have painted it with encapsulating paint. The concern we have got is that paint could easily chip off and expose the asbestos.
Do you think that it was asbestos?
whats your reason for thinking it wasn't asbestos
what do you mean in one particular stop?
the train stopping? IM sorry i still don't understand. The train was travelling when the dust came in.
i have made a note doctor of what you have said and its just because i have read articles that there is asbestos on the underground and i came across a cloud of dust that filled the train it got me worried that it could be asbestos. Is this not a normal reaction
i am not on any treatment for anxiety, i have been offered before by a doctor but did not like the sound of the side affects. If there was asbestos in the dust then that won't be good
Yes you are right doctor, but i don't know if im being paranoid or not....what do you think honestly
i understand my anxiety but is this nothing to be concerned about? Because just the thought of being exposed to asbestos scares me.
so you don't think this cloud of dust that entered the train while it was travelling underground was asbestos?
Im sorry dr.david im just really scared that i got exposed to asbestos. Despite what i have told you about asbestos in the underground and tunnels you still think it is unlikely there was asbestos in that cloud of dust that filled the train.
yes, I think it is unlikely you have been exposed to asbestos
