I was sick as a dog. I had to evacuate my studio during the firing, it
damaged my lungs, ruined my kiln shelves. I was sick with respiratory
problems for three months, had to go on oxygen. Yep. you guessed

Don't do it!

posted. Hope you are feeling better now! What an awful way to discover this
lethal problem.
