Oh, my!! I thought everyone was kidding with the worm stories. You guys really got worms??? Where from??? Never heard that stuff before. Where I grew up, there was only the occasional kid that got pin worms, and the moms knew because the kid itched in a certain place. Pin worms came out only at night, so moms would tape over a certain place and then examine the removed tape. But there were never worms in poop that you could see with the naked eye. OOOOOOhhhhh. I'm getting the creepy crawlies.
I bet we all have worms! LOL There are some who have new natural health remedies that are advertised. There is one woman...can't think of her name, she was on tv a lot talking about it. That was just a couple years ago when I saw her. Let me look it up...

Good morning everybody!:)

Country folk quite often got intestinal parasites or worms mainly from untreated drinking water and were more prevalent in children. Pin worms are visible in bowel movements and generally only came out at night when the child is less active, but that is/was not always the case. The tape on the hiney was simply a removal, but not a cure.
For more info you may Google pin worms or tape worms. There was a little purple pill with an extremely bad taste similar to the "Walko" tablets they added to the chicken water. But those cost money and home remedies of turpentine, kerosene (coal oil), moonshine, and whiskey were used and added to sugar or sorghum molasses to make it more tasty. No kidding.
I learn something every day. It's no wonder that the children didn't get sick from the "cure." The tape on the hiney was only a diagnostic method used by moms before stool specimens were sent to the doctor for analysis. After the pin worms were discovered, there was a medicine that the children took (certainly not shine or white lightenin) as we called it back in the day.

Don't hear much about moonshine these days. There was a girl I went to school with, whose father had a still. The feds were tipped off and several black sedans with stereotyped "government guys" surrounded the house and smashed the still. That poor girl never lived that one down, and she was such a sweet young lady.

LOL! WKG, that sounds like an advertisement for the "ORIGINAL" little blue pill. AKA, Valium. Back in the early 1950's Valium, hehe!!

Except for the last 2 of 6 children, we were all born at home and I never even saw a doctor until I went into the military at age 20 so the home remedies must have worked. LOL

The sun came out and Dog and I just got back from a 1 1/2 mile hike, now time for our nap. Good day.

I put on weight too fast to have parasites nibbling at the food I eat. When I was sick, I lost so much weight...and kept losing, fearing that I would die from lack of nutrition. The little bit of food that I was able to eat was not enough to sustain me. I no longer have that problem. I regained the weight and got used to calorie dense food (when I needed it). Now I crave that food, and if I continue eating like I do now, I will have major weight problems. I have to nip it in the bud right now. No happy mediums. Now I am back to the perpetual dieting.

I knew a lady that did 10 years for cooking mash. She was a sweet lady.

From what I have read intestinal worms can cause either weight loss or weight gain. In weight gain they eat up the nutritional part of what you ate then you keep on eating because you're hungry and pack on the calories and weight-something like that.
I know what you mean, I have to just not have certain things in the house!

Got to do some housework and go pay a couple bills. You all have a great day!:)...anybody want to do some dishes? My mom always said it is good for your hands, make them soft and smooth! LOL

I am on EST and have had my nap already. UP until about 1958, Country Folk never went to a doctor except for surgeries. I have to retract the statement that I never saw a doctor until age 20. I had forgotten that I had my tonsils removed at age 10. I am pretty sure that is the first time I ever had ice cream in the summer. We did have snow cream made with snow and vanilla extract and cream from the old cow.

County Health nurses used to come to the country schools for "shots day". I did not mind the shots, but I surely did not care for the odor. I recall the Health Nurse holding up a pocket watch and asking the kids if they could hear? Naturally, everyone said "yes" just because their friends did.

@ Abeliever:
You asked me yesterday about the reality of gun confiscation and proof with a video or news artice.
I did not say gun confiscation is imminent, but that is the slippery slope down which we slide.

Please google gun confiscation after Katrina. Google victims of this loss of rights. Take a peek at the video of the poor, frail, elderly lady that was manhandled during this process. When martial law is enforced, we will all see what happens if the shtf. Lala

Abeliever, I had trouble cutting and pasting the video, but you can find it on www.military.com .
See what happened to the elderly lady, Patty Konie. There are other examples on that video, plus numerous articles.
