Eventually, psychological nits must be treated in the same way as the real thing

Micah has had head lice. We share a brush, sometimes a towel and often a pillow, so I thought I didn't have a chance of missing out on an infestation.

After a week of paranoid scratching and fruitless conditioner and fine-tooth combing, I have succumb and given myself a harsh chemical treatment. There was no other way to get rid of this psychological case of nits.

After treatment, I am no longer itchy!


  1. Oh yes, nothing like the mention of the word "nits" to get that itchy feeling!

    Glad the treatment worked.

  2. I came home from work and re-read this post and am feeling itchy again...
