Do you have skype?
I would also suggest checking with all adjoining neighbours as potential sources.
Bed Bugs Limited
I am so sorry you are going through this. Most of us know what it's like to have bed bugs. Many here have also suffered from depression and can understand that. No one on the website is qualified to counsel someone who is depressed and potentially suicidal, however.
If you are prone to depression, then bed bugs can make things worse.
If you are thinking of harming yourself, it is essential that you seek help from a medical or psychological professional right away. You can call a doctor or therapist you already have a relationship with, or if you don't have one or they're not available, go to the Emergency Room. Depression is treatable, so please do get help.
It's the policy of the site to close threads where people are talking about suicide. It's essential that you get good professional help with such a problem. I really hope you will do that. I am going to send this message to your email also (as the site admin, I can do that).
However, though I am closing this thread, please feel free to come back and start a new thread when you want to discuss the bed bug issue. We are here for you if you want support with the stress of bed bugs, or practical suggestions.
Also, I want to let you know that I deleted your email address in the post above because it's really not a good idea to post one (or a Facebook link) here. It opens you up to all kinds of problems including spam. In your situation, it also exposes you to more people who prey on those who are having a rough time.
You can receive private messages and send them to anyone here when you're logged in (see my note on your post above). It sounds like David Cain (an expert on bed bugs) may be offering to talk with you on Skype.
I really hope you will seek professional help with the depression ASAP so you can start feeling better. You can get through this. Please come back and let us know how you're doing.
