Thank you for your kind replies and concern Charlie and Shelley... I have just stayed in this apartment for a year and a half ... the complex have lots of trees, I live at the second level and the apartment is situated in front of two huge trees which has a lot of birds, bees and other insects flying around...( the first few months I have stayed in this place, I even had a hornet's nest removed, I was a nature- lover so I did not mind... but I do mind now!!!) When I first moved in I noticed a feather at the upper side of the wall of the closet by my patio... I did not know anything about bird mites and springtails at that time... I removed the feather and I stored all my christmas and halloween decorations in that closet... when I took them out to decorate my apartment this last Christmas( especially the tall plastic christmas tree..), that was when I started getting the insect bites, needle prick and crawling sensations which was described here and other blogs for mite infestation...I hired a pest-controller ( on my own) which was experienced in bird mites control... so far they have sprayed and fumigated the apartment twice but I still have the bites at nights especially when I am in front of the television and computer, that is when I decided maybe they are springtails or a combination... but really not identified them ( I'am not interested at this time to even know...) I have been eating healthy, trying to keep my ph level alkaline before these unfortunate thing happened...<quoted text>
You are way too kind...:) I only posted my experience to try and help anyone else who was in the same boat, and I truly hope it helps you in some way. It was a very frightening experience... I'm so sorry you're going through this right now. I do believe that they are attracted to us for some reason, but I'm not convinced that Lyme disease or Morgellons is the cause of that for everyone. My daughter and I were actually tested for Lyme disease through our doctors and we were negative. We didn't get tested through Igenex, but I do feel confident that we are Lyme free. Focus on what you can right now... Eliminating bugs... Take a good vitamin (Source of Life Gold is pretty good) and try to detox and eat healthy. Cut out the sugar... Take a good probiotic... Give it some time, too. Try to get some sleep, however possible. There are natural sleep aids that do help.. Valerian root is one. Praying for you!
Thank you so much again for all your concerns... I will definitely update here on my progress...It is such a relief to be able to talk to you Shelley... God Bless!
