Hello there, i’m Tyrone and welcome to my site. I am from the beautiful Bahama islands, where I grew up fishing and diving. As I matured, I ventured into numerous work fields but always had a passion for landscaping, dealing with all sorts of different plants, grass, soils and sometimes fertilizers.
To me, planting, maintaining and creating a beautiful landscape was always a wonderful and challenging task. It can also be very risky not having the right protection. I’ve learned that the hard way about 3 years ago working as a caretaker for a private homeowner.
The job included painting, pressure cleaning, mowing, tree trimming and grass planting, which led me to dealing with imported soil as well. I recalled using gloves about once when I planted the grass which was a huge mistake. About 4 days after I was finished, I started itching constantly around my fingers day and night, it was so irritating my nights became restless.
The next few days it seemed infected and I became paranoid because nothing that I used seemed to work. Not having a clue of what it was I went to a clinic, where I was told that it was some kind of fungi infection.
Even though,not all fungi cause diseases, i remembered removing many stinkhorns and puffballs that grew around the yard, especially in summer. I never even had a clue of what these strange looking things were, also, nobody i asked had an answer.
My hands and fingernails were a mess, which i hid for the most of the time. One doctor said that she never saw nothing as bad as my hands before,medications and pills that I was given, only slowed it but never killed it, It came to a point where I was unable to work. From that time to this I was searching and learning about fungi and its dangers, uses, habitat, etc.
Why I want to help people
My personal experience with fungus was a total nightmare, I’ve felt and seen the damage that it can do. It causes pain, discomfort and takes away ones ability to work. If not treated it will get worst and spread, taking over the whole body. Anyone can catch a fungous infection which can lead to some serious illnesses.A fungi infection isn’t a pretty sight to see and the less we know about it, i think the more our families are at risk.
I remember when I was ashamed to show my hands to anyone and couldn’t work. It was only because my conditions was getting worst at that time. Like many others, I’ve wasted money on cremes, even some things prescribed that didn’t work, it was very frustrating. Today i’m free from that old fungi infection with some old simple solutions, it was unbelievable.
The reason for this site
This site was created to assist people having questions about fungi, reproduction, uses, diseases. To give them simple clear knowledge about what fungi really is. Since I didn’t lost both hands to fungus but was able to heal, and to simply share some knowledge about certain things that can cause serious harm to one’s health to me is a joy and very important.
All the best
