It's been a LONG time since I've been on this board. I had been managing my anxiety really well, even to the point where I went off my meds a few months back.
Well my daughter had a horrible lice infestation (she's never had it, nor I, so I had no idea what to look for) and I even had it. We got both of us treated professionally and she's been clear since because I check her thoroughly every day. I assumed I was too as my husband was checking my hair and he said I was.
But the itching still relented and I did a comb through last night and pulled out 4 nits. Now my husband thinks they are dead from the treatment we had a month ago, but my mind is now reeling. In this month's time I had absolutely lost it. I went back on meds - tried something new - Zoloft. Plus lorazepam, but hydroxyzine which is supposed to stop the itching.
But again, I'm now back in crazy mode because of finding those nits. They could very well be left over and dead, but I'm a shaking mess.
I feel like I have PTSD with it and wonder if I'll ever be able to move on?
