6 month update(1 post)
I am finally free and clear enough that I have relaxed and taken my things out of the individual ziplock bags. My partner has finally been invited back to my apartment (which is great since he lives at home).
Life is finally started to move on.
I will always I think still double check mattress's wherever I am staying (including my family and friends house). My friends are adjusting to how jumpy I am at things. But minus a little awareness life had returned to almost normal.
I had three treatments. And thank goodness they stuck.
The only problem is my family. My sister is homeless. She stays in shelters and buys a lot of second hand clothing. She also buys her daughter (who my parents have custody of) a lot of used soft toys. Every time I talk to her about prevention tips she shuts down and ignores me because the sheer thought is too much for her.
My parents listen and if they are home at the time will wash or dryer everything or stick it in their deep freeze for a long period of time.
But the biggest problem is my sister will show up while they are gone and leave entire bags of used clothing just sitting around...
I still double check my mattress even though I have an allerzip system in place now and haven't had a bite for six months. So when I go home I flip everything.
