    Hi guys! I'm a freelance journalist and current bedbug sufferer looking for people who would be willing to be interviewed about their bedbug experience, particularly the psychological aspects, for a piece I'm writing.

    In my experience, the worst part about this whole nightmare is that it makes you feel disgusting, isolated, paranoid, etc.., and I think that's something that many people, even those who know about and fear bedbugs, don't understand. Most of us just want to hide and pretend this never happened, which means most people have no idea what it's like.

    Even if you'd prefer that your full name not be used in an article, and especially if you feel like you can't talk to any non-bug people about this, I'd love to meet up with you and interview you in what I imagine would be both a very interesting and a somewhat therapeutic discussion. Anyone interested in sharing their story can email me at golachargers [at] gmail [dot] com and we can try to set up a time to talk.

    Thanks for your time, and best of luck to all of you!

    "Head bugs" tend to be much more insidious than bed bugs.
    This is definitely a topic that's on peoples' minds, post a link when it's published.
