i want to give up, i dont know what to do(3 posts)
its been a few months that ive been getting bumps ALL OVER my body. arms, legs, stomach, back and even my face. no one took me seriously because i couldnt find anything. after about a month, i couldnt take it anymore and decided to see a doctor. who told "these are not bug bites" and step tested me. i knew he was crazy, i knew i did not have strep for TWO MONTHS.
for about a week i didnt notice any bites after i washed my covers and sheets and vaccumed my bed.
low and behold, 2 months and 1 week later after i started getting bit, i see a bed bug, in broad daylight, walking over my stomach over my comforter. i freaked out and flushed it. i went to work. cried on my breaks.
i am not an organized person. i leave clothes on my floor and stuff, and we had recently moved in so nothing is put away. my roomate doesnt have them, and she is grossed out now. that night when i got back from work, i found 5 more. one on my wall. 4 more in my bed. i took my cat and left at 2am to go stay at my moms (dont worry, i made sure i was bug free) and i have no idea where to go from here. we wanted out of our lease anyways because nothing in our apartment works and they never fix anything. i dont know what my rights are. but i am miserable. i cant sleep. im doing bad at work.
HELP!!! just tell me im not alone!!!
You know that you are not alone...
you've got to KEEP any future bb you see.
Then you're going to get that alleged bb positively identified.
In the meantime you should be organizing your belongings and purging them of things you really don't need and want.
also check your local rules - many states have enacted legislation requiring land lords to respond quickly and assist tenants in fixing the issue. If you take some of the steps list on the website it helps - trust me - im in your same position.
