Splashed gasoline and it got on my skin and clothes(will it hurt liver?)

Hi everybody.  I was pumping gas today and leaning against my car while I was doing it.  The gas splashed out and got on my butt (I was was wearing shorts -  :)  )   It was really strong smelling.  When I got home, I through the shorts and my underpants into the washer.  And changed into clean clothes.  The gas smell was so strong that after I washed this stuff, it still stunk like gas.  So, I had to wash it again.  Will being exposed to gasoline hurt your liver?

I doubt that it would hurt your liver. Just be glad no one lit a match or you would have given a whole new meaning 'to theres a chick with one hot butt':) Take care and be careful

Susan,
I don't think the gas will hurt your liver.

Can-Do-Man,
Thanks for your words of wisdom earlier today.  The worrying eased off some today.  I hope you are having a good holiday. I went to the pool with my daughter and husband. I don't know what I would do without you all on this board.  It helps to keep me sane.  Maybe that was what was wrong earlier.  I hadn't been on since last Wed.  I felt alone.

Hi Lilmoma,
How are you this evening? Earlier today I posted because for the past couple of days, I've felt scared...actually more to the point of terrified.  I couldn't make my mind stop.  I haven't slept well either.  I hope you are having a good weekend

Change your shorts immediately.  Do not expose yourself to harmful vapors including heavy cleaners like Bleach, Liquid Plumber, or gas.  Those vapors are bad for your liver.

I think you be all right only one time. gas is a solvent.It would take a lot of exposier over a period of time to find it's way to the liver

Don't think one time is going to hurt you although as stated, stay away from fumes over a long term such as cleaners and soforth.  My Rog pumps my gas for me and does the cleaning that requires any comet or mildew remover.

Sorry I had to cancel the pool party today....weather is atrocious!  Flooding, raining, lighting, thundering, dark and just plain UGLY! Surprised I still have internet service!  Guess I'll head to the bed, good day for it....

Happy memorial day.

P.S. Won't be fisherless after next week, we are gonna go ahead and GET THE BOAT!  WOOHOO!

I am done giving hubby shots (sigh)
He does his last shot this friday (I am sooooo jealous!)
I only gave him his procrit shots, and he's done with that.
Yeah,....I have all his left-over procrits!!!!
My doc told me my numbers looked so good that he wanted to take me off procrit,....but ya know,....do I, should I, ..have to go through all that again? I mean why take a chance having my hgb go back into the toilet, and it takes so long before the procrit starts working, ya know, not to mention the pure misery of what a person goes through.
So, I just have been calling it in anyway, and they deliver it, so I am getting a nice stash in case I need some.
I got some warming up on the counter now, I am doing it every other week, so far, so good.
If I have left over when Im done,...then maybe somebody here at the forum will need a helping hand one day,....it wont be wasted, and that is why I pay such huge premiums every months anyway right?

Hi there. I finally got the gas smell out after the second washing, without exploding my washer or dryer.  I had tried to rinse out as much as I could before I put it in the washer, but it had still smelled like gas after running through the 1st cycle.  I don't know why the gas splashes back like that when the nozzle is still in the car.  

Well, I hope everybody has a good Memorial Day today.  I'm just doing my usual, resting.

"Authorities said the man had apparently scaled an 8-foot tall fence while naked and covered in nacho cheese and was seen running toward a Jeep in which officers found clothing and an open bottle of vodka."

See. i told you..  that bottle of vodka doesn't fit your MO...but the cheese thing. hmmm.

personally i try to avoid open flames when naked so the kitchen doesn't appeal to me that much. but cheese can be exported to other parts of the house...

Tracy, I saw it to on the news and was wondering who that was.  The news said it was someone crossing the border, near the desert and he was trying to blend in with the sand.  Had know idea it was can do man.   Heard the minute men are hot on his trail.

Now i might be 'nuts' but i'll be durn if i'm gonna risk them climbing a fence.

Only beagle dogs chasing silly wabbits would do that.

Hey to both of you!!

Doglover: I do understand that "panicky feeling" I think alot of people (including doc) thought I needed something for depression, which really was not the case. It was depression in the true sense of the word, it was a "on edge, jump out of my skin, I hate everybody, dont stand so close to me, feeling.
Gosh I guess that could be called depression, but doc tried me on zoloft and that was too "out there" I am very medication sensitive, even cold tablets will get me acting like a kook!!
So doc changed me over to klonipin (klonopin),...and hey they work great, they are used for panic attacks as well.
Now that is not to say that sometimes I feel a normal depression due to "whats going on" but doc sai to try this, and if it didnt do the job, then maybe some valium, (I dont like the way valium makes me feel, (real spacey-like)

Can-do: My Man!!!!!!
:) :) ;)

You have always been so good to me, really a better friend than I prolly deserve right now, but I sure do appreciate you always noticing my posts, and always putting a smile on mu face.
You are one of those rare people,...I suspect you prolly hear that from your wife too, or anybody that really knows you.
your friend, lilmoma

Sorry about thae gasoline spill on your clothes, gosh that is annoying. Did you talk to the manager of the store.
That is an issue with the pump, and they should gladly pay for your dry cleaning, or replacement of clothing.

I hope you are feeling well these days  :)

On the Procrit, I take a 1/2 a vial on each day.  It's a normal dose, but split in two.  I was having too many extra sides from the full dose of Procrit all at once, so Dr. had me split it. Most people don't get many sides from Procrit, but I managed to.
Oh well, that's life in the big city!
