Hi everyone. I really dont know where to start but here goes. i'll try to keep it short and simple. first off, i am a dog groomer for about 12 years. I had my own shop for 7 years and also provided doggy daycare. so to contract worms/parasites, with as much poop that i picked up on adaily basis, it wouldnt surprise me if i havent had these things for a very long time. don't get me wrong, i am a hand washing freak. but probably somewhere down the line the right poop aat the right time got me. or who knows, i walk barefoot all the time and couldve got something from mulch or the grass or somthing. however it happened. i shouldve known earlier because im 44 and have been sttrong and healthy the past 25 years. then about a year and a half ago ive been in and out of hospital with pnemonia bronchitis anxiety., you name it. i have brain fog, im exhausted and in pain from these things biting me constantly. ive been through 6 doctors, urgent care, infectious disease dr, and er's. 5 ovi(?) tests, cat scan, blood test, pee tests, vitiman d tests, drug test, you name it tests. the only thing it shows is im lacking vit d i have cloudy pee and elevated white blood count. but the doctors said im fine except i have delusional parasitosis. i need to seek help and put me on zoloft. yeah!!!! i almost had to believe them because i was the only one seeing these things in my poo, out of my throat in ,my eyes but in their defense i have been through divorce, losing house, moving twice with my children(my oldest goiungoff to college which broke my heart and made me proud all at the same time)and i had to close my shop down. i couldnt work cuz' i couldnt focus onthe business, or anything for that fact. my brain is mush. cant remember what i did 5 minutes ago. i worked so hard at making that business a success and to have to let it go crushed me. but im tough. everyone that knows me, knows tht i dont crumble. well, when they told me i had delusional parasitosis i felt i finally broke. my brain was on overload and so then i just focused on getting mentally better. it worked for about a month and a half and now the things are back with a vengence. i know im not crazy. but im not going back to the doctors. i lost my family who was my support system for so long, lost my business and not working. trying to keep it together for my boys, who have now seen crazy mommy walking around the house saying"its not real" and whincing in pain all the time. by the way, urgent care doctor did give me a dose of invermectin and then i went and got some from thelocal feed store and took another dose which prob gave me the month & half relief. they nevef truly went completely away. intestinal worms were always there. i just didnt tell anyone trying to hold on to what sanity i have. so to sum it up, doctors suck, worms suck and everyone that thinks we all are crazy suck. i will get through this, i just havent figured out how yet. so everyone here, thank you for your posts and this website. i cant do this withhout you!!!!
