Where can I find firewood for our fireplace?

I would avoid pine, it will muck up that nice newly cleaned chimney right quick. Hardwoods will burn cleaner and longer. I would suggest you check with the tree trimming companies in your area. Craigslist seems to have many people offering firewood in my area as well. You can check with your local park service. Here in VA you can get a permit to go take up to I think 2 cords of dead wood out of the national forest. If you want to pay exorbitant prices and do little to no work, I have seen shrink wrapped barely a nights worth firewood for sale at Lowes, Home Depot and even Kroger for I'm guessing around 4 to 7 dollars. I usually call up then number on CraigsList or on a truck parked with firewood and a number on it. Around here its about 70 for a Pickup truck with 3 foot bed extensions, or 300 for a dump truck load.

Any number of things could be causing your symptoms, even just poor sleep. How long has it been going on? No, it does not sound like carbon monoxide poisoning (CO).

CO needs to have a source. CO comes from fumes of incomplete combustion. This is commonly from old gas furnaces in the home, car exhaust, or other combustion fumes including smoke from fire. If you have an old wall furnace in your home it could be putting off CO whenever it's on (from incomplete combustion of the natural gas), but everyone in the home would probably be similarly affected. If this is the case the fire department should have a gas detector that can tell you if there's CO in your home, but don't call them if you don't have a reason to believe that there is CO. If you have fires in a fireplace make sure smoke is not backing up in the house. Consider having your chimney cleaned. If you're worried about CO from your car you can take it to a muffler shop to check for exhaust leaks. Just keep in mind to ask other people that might have been affected by the same source if they have been having symptoms. High-dose CO exposure quickly leads to complete unconsciousness, and eventually death. Symptoms of CO exposure gradually resolve after being removed from the source, and not be constant everywhere you go.

In any case, it's probably something else entirely causing your symptoms. The common recommendations for these kinds of symptoms are:

-Get plenty of sleep.

-Eat a healthy diet, including plenty of water.

-Keep caffeine intake low. A single cup of coffee a day has been found to be fine and possibly good, but more than that is bad. Tea is better.

-Keep alcohol intake low. A glass of wine a couple times a week is fine, but six beers every night is very bad.

-Don't use other drugs.

-Exercise, even just a little.

If you don't think your symptoms are a result of lifestyle, then you should go ask your doctor. They can order simple blood tests for things like anemia, diabetes, and thyroid problems. The symptoms could also be side effects of medications you're taking. I hope this all helps.

Be safe, and be well,
