    Hi. These don't look bed bug related to me.

    I also saw your other posts. I have a friend who also developed a very strong anxiety around bed bugs despite not having any signs. She was very, very afraid, like you are right now, but in the end, it turned out she did not have any bed bugs at all.

    I think you are in the same situation she was in, where your anxiety is sky high and causing you to live in extreme fear of bed bugs that you don't have.

    Close your eyes, take deep breaths. When you feel your mind try to say 'what if I have bed bugs?!' - just know that it is a part of you that is trying to protect you from what it thinks is a threat, but it is actually not helping you right now. I know it is very easy to feel scared and paranoid, but so far, you don't have any signs of bed bugs and many of the people on this forum are very familiar with what they are like by now.

    If you think you have bites, I would instead go to your doctor and have them look at them. The bites you have could be from many, many other things - a doctor could be able to help you figure out what it really is since it is not bed bugs.

    If it jumped, it is a flea. Your cat probably has fleas and that is what is biting you. Make sure to put flea medicine on your cat. Vacuum your carpets and floor every day if you can and wash your clothes often. Fleas are easier to kill than bed bugs.

    Pictures are a little dark, but there's no bed bug.
