Well, mostly. Other than something on my cheek that could be either an atypical bite or a bad zit, there hasn’t been anything to report over the last 4 days. Cue jinx.
Today marks two full months since this started, and I feel like I’ve moved into a sense of normalcy. Well, a New Normal. The routines of laundry, ziplocs, bite inspections and DE dusting now punctuate my days, but I’m no longer anxious, paranoid, furious, or overwhelmed. Instead, I basically feel like I did before, but with these additional steps in my day and a bedbug-tinted view of other people and places. Such a relief!
I know it’s not over yet–I’m still wary of believing it ever will be–so I look forward to the next Spray Day (the 23rd) and carry on. It’s at least no longer in the WAY of everything, now, which is what I’ve been working toward.
