Well you don't see to many retired electricians especially those that worked in the construction sector. Many die far to young. Exposure to things like asbestos, dust, chemicals, etc with the then unknown dangers associated with those things and other things that are still emerging has taken it's toll. I've lost some great friends over the years, personally I don't worry to much if I am contaminated in any way as I can't do anything about it now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck.

It only gets worse, but if you can handle it, it is worth it in the long run.

It will be the best move you have forcibly made.

Thats how i started:)

And yes, you are young, so get on with it and be a man!!:D:D:D
