Sandra is a grandma. She spoke of her grandson all the time.<quoted text>
SKF is the woman who wrote the thread about Arm & Hammer.
SK = is Sweet Kitten = she is the grandma who wrote the thread Albendazole is Curing Me.
She is cured. They are both cured. But SKF (sandra) has Lyme Disease.
SK = Sweet Kitten does not have Lyme Disease. She took Doxy for a good six weeks following her Albendazole month then at least two more months of maintenance. She is well and happy and has helped many people.
With regard to how long mites live off the host, it depends which mite species it is. Bird mites have been proven to live off the host for 9 months. There are some weird different bird mite species. I do not know about other mites. As some mites live off skin cells I guess it depends how often the environment is cleaned off skin cells and debris.
I lose it on a regular basis lately, but a good ol' yummy and a cup of tea does it for me. Also swearing in the car with the windows wound up. Works wonders for built up stress. Try it at the top of your lungs :) Never have been one for illegal substances or alcohol. But would well understand if this nightmare drives a soul to whatever gets them through the day.:) It's more that a body should have to bear and can bring shame, isolation and horror. Life changing stuff.
We will all be wiser for sure after this is over and have learned so much about what works with handling stress, ill health, financial loss, employment loss and family concerns. I sure hope it is the only serious life lessons we all are forced to face. It's enough already!
You won't hear me say a thing about "Sweetkitten."
And, no, bird mites don't live 9 months off the host, either. No mite can live that long without a host. They are parasites. They are too small. They dry up and die after a few days. It depends on the humidity in the environment.. Yeah, they can eat dead skin cells.... but, live for 9 months off the host. nope.
Sweetkitten is an alias. She is an account one of you guys made up here. Shondatime (Laquisha I call her) is another alias account, too. Most of the accounts on here are aliases.
But, from what you said that you were in bed for a month and couldn't get up, and from what you typed here to someone, it looked like you were losing it. That is when the hard hitters come in. Driving in a car with the windows up and shouting is not going to do it.
When you can't get out of bed in the morning for days on end, you need to see a psych.
Try to play it off that a cookie and a cup of tea straightens you out, that's bs and you know it.
