I think I may have a problem. Ever since the whole Head Lice fiasco, I can not stop looking at my own scalp or the kids. I spend at least a 1-1.5 hrs throughout the whole day trying to see if I see any bugs or nits. I've done something each week to hoard them off if I did have any. RID twice, alcohol and mouthwash the next, then I dyed my hair a week after that, now this week I still feel like I need to do something else. I might dye my hair again since I bought 2. I plan to buy tree tea oil and put a bunch of drops in my shampoo so we can use that as a daily preventative.
This morning my daughter told me that the teacher said to put their coats back on the rack so she stuck her coat in her bag and then on the rack. She does NOT want to go through it all over. She had enough the first and hopefully last time. Then today when I picked up my son from school because I had a meeting to get to, they had all the kids coats in a pile at lunch because after they eat they get their coats on and get on the bus. I about killed over. I felt heavy chested, completely panicked, and snatched it off the pile as soon as I saw they had a pile in the corner.
Anyways, I'm not sure what to do about the whole helpless feeling that we all have headlice and it's still around. Everytime I itch my head I run to the mirror for 15-20 minutes. I am so screwed up from this whole thing. I keep thinking "oh tomorrow I won't feel bug contaminated" but then I feel an itch and run to the bathroom. I feel like no one is itching their head but me but then if I see someone itch....I run over and start searching their head. I need help.
