Help me please!(2 posts)
I've had three treatments, although I don't think they were very good. I've washed, pdried, packtited and bagged every tiem of clothing, every shoe, every book in my place. I've inspected every piece of furniture. I've encased mattress/ boxspring, isolated the bed, vaselined the legs,continually dusted and treated and inspected my couch--and after 5 days bug-free, I felt an itch on my back last night (while sitting on the couch) and when I went to look, also saw 3 huge new welts on my back which itch like a mother. I finally slept due to sheer exhaustion and woke up this morning to see a live one at the foot of my bed. (Second time I got one in the same place on my bed, and both times it was, ick, unfed--probably because I get up at 5 am when they're just starting after me.) Now I find out there's def. an issue in my building and I raised holy hel with the LL today and need to give them a little more time to resolve the issue. But WHY am I still getting bites in the meantime? Where are they coming from? I have a metal bed frame--there's just not much room to hide! But I haven't slept in a week and it's affecting my job. What can be happening here?
The name bed bugs is a misnomer.They can harbor just about anywhere.
There's a lot of information on this website. This will help you. We also know what you're going through, and that should help you feel a little better.
Everybody's experience is different. Some of us - like me - are incredibly unlucky and there is just no getting rid of them. We have to learn to live with them.
You're in the thick of it right now, and it seems incredibly overwhelming, but you may be one the success stories. It does take time.
I have theories about why it's so hard to get rid of them, but rather than post a polemic, I'll just say that we don't have enough up-to-date and correct information to get ahead of the curve.
Be brave, anneski, be brave.
