Has anyone dealt with bedbugs? will you share your story with me?
For MONTHS I have been getting bit by a mysterious insect. I've been chalking it off as fleas since I work with dogs but recently it's been getting worse & worse. Last night, I went to bed and my boyfriend came to join me at 3am. He accidentally woke me up & I got up to get a glass of water and I saw a tick (or so I thought) on the wall. The minute I saw another "tick" I knew we had a problem. When we started searching for bed bugs we found a few underneath our mattress box and then...we pulled a poster of the wall.
You guys I think I am seriously experiencing emotional distress. It was the grossest thing I had ever seen. A huge black mound (as big as my head) with bed bugs scurrying around. I was appalled that we hadn't noticed this before (our apartment is very clean but you don't often think to check behind wall hangings) and we found more of these "mounds" (aka shit) behind other posters, ect.
I got no sleep last night and went to our apartment office, as we rent, and brought a few bugs with them. The exterminator was called and he told me my apartment on a scale of 1-10 was an 8!!! HOW DID WE NOT NOTICE THIS?!?! I am so disgusting, horrified and feel traumatized. I have court in the morning and yet I'm here worrying about our bed bug problem instead!
Reading about it on the internet freaks me out even more. People say it's literally hell to go through and they are extremely hard to get rid of.
Has anyone gone through this?
I seriously don't think I will ever NOT be checking for bed bugs for the rest of my life.
