    I realized I had bedbugs in October, immediately called my landlord.

    I dried all of my clothes and put them in the hallway. I have been living with most of my stuff packed away since October, and have had 5 treatments since then. The guys seem competent though at times they've given me different information.

    I'm having dreams about them, I can't do renovations until they've gone, everything feels unclean and I'm just constantly doing laundry. They're making my life hell.

    I'm doing everything I can, but the room is so small that i think it's hard for them to get into the whole space. However, the guy said he thought we were close and certainly I haven't seen one for a while.

    But this morning one of my roommates texted me to say that she found one for sure and then the other one now thinks she found one in her luggage (she's in CA). I feel so disheartened given how hard I've worked to keep this contained. They're not blaming me but I wouldn't blame them if they did. Even if it's not a cleanliness thing, I could have done more, I could have sealed this bag or whatever. I feel like I'm doing as much as possible but given that I've been doing this for 10 weeks, so it’s totally possible that I’ve made a slip up. I’m just so so frustrated and disheartened and I want to scream.

    I don't know what to do, or where to put my stuff. I feel like everywhere in unsafe.
