Disposable Sheets

September 10, 2013 By: kajay Category: Kajay's Best, Ordering, Tips

To find these wonderful inventions online, click this link and scan the results for the 58″ x 102″ size:

https://www.google.com/search?q=disposable+sheets+twin+tissue+poly+58%22+x+102%22+-medexsupply.com&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

I suggest avoiding links to medexsupply.com. Here’s why:

1. Fast shipping–but at outragous prices, with no free ship or value option.

2. Good prices but see item 1.

3. Coupons available, but they failed to honor my last one, a good coupon that allowed me to increase my quantity ordered, and then they charged me full price, which I could not afford and had not planned for.

They spent a great deal of time telling me what they were not willing to do and offering me near worthless alternative discounts. This, by the way, is how I began my relationship with Medex Supply back when they were the only source for disposable sheets.

But you know what? They no longer are. Click this link to find disposable sheets:

Now, dear ones, sleep tight, and don’t let the bedbugs bite!

Latest F-Zyme Formula – Ingredients List

July 12, 2012 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, F-Zymes

Enzpire Capsules

These are working great for me when I can stand to take two daily. Have to alternate with days when I only take one as a side effect is diarrhea! I am glad I opted to follow a friend of mine and experiment with taking the enzymes orally. Now I no longer have to fill my own capsules, plus Gordon has developed a specific formula for them, and here it is:

Ingredients:

  • Cellulase
  • Protease
  • Amylase
  • Serrapeptidasem
  • Disodium salt

Enzpire Spray Powder

The Enzpire loose powder has the same ingredients except instead of Disodium Salt, it substitutes Sodium Carbonate.

WARNING

Powders have their own chemical properties that make them anything from relatively harmless to deadly, however, even powders with neutral or beneficial properties should not be inhaled, as the small crystalline (sharp edged) particles are not good for lung tissue and can cause breathing problems.

Mom Hopeful Rife will Help Son Beat Lyme

May 30, 2012 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, Rife, Supplements

One mother of a very sick son writes–

“I just purchased the DP100 Rife Machine, and it will arrive in about 2 weeks. My name is Mimi and my son, Mark (13) has

  • Lyme
  • Major gut dysfunctionality with every malabsorption, overgrowth, intolerance, and sensitivity problem that exists
  • Dead bone lesions in his ankles
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Horrible acne that started when we started killing Lyme

He’s been sick for years, but he is getting better. For some time he couldn’t tolerate even vitamins and minerals without a reaction. It took a year to slowly build up nutrients, but now he can tolerate many. What we’ve been doing is…

Colloidal Silver and Sinusitis

May 27, 2012 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, Colloidal Silver

One poster today reported replacing saline solution in nasal spray bottle with colloidal silver.

Hey. Could be worth a shot.

Note: One respondent reported this irritates her sinuses, so this isn’t for everyone.

Enzpire Capsules

March 08, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes

Dear Friends,
Good News! I’ve been wrong all along. I thought I could control M. symptoms through a topical spray that made its way through the skin barrier. I was wrong. It wasn’t enough to attack the pathogen sufficiently to put it out of commission. That is why I have developed Enzpire capsules do a more complete job of eliminating the disease on the inside of our bodies. Early reports have been extremely positive.
Users are reporting a “clearing” of their symptoms beginning after just two weeks of taking the capsules. These reports include reduction of itching and crawling sensations, reduction in size of lesions with a drying out and healing over. Also a definite reduction in visible sightings of fibers and other unwanted pathogenic material. The reasons for these dramatic changes becomes evident when placed under the objective scrutiny of the microscope.
Volunteer samples show a dramatic reduction in biofilm. The pathogen cannot survive outside of its environment of biofilm. The other important observation is the death of 90% of the fibers. This is due to an extraction method by which the metallic substances of the disease are pulled out of the pathogen, causing instant death. The fibers simply appear as dried, flattened and shriveled!
This is a big step in my research and hopefully will lead to the entire eradication of Morgellons from the human body. If you decide to give this a try, remember to continue with the spray. While Morgellons is definitely a systemic disease, the fibers have an affinity for skin and hair. A one month’s supply of capsules is $50.00. I am working to have my website upgraded to include this new product, but if you can’t find it you can always call me and I will be happy to help you with your needs over the phone.

Note:   Gordon has reduced his recommended dosage to two capsules daily based on user reports.

I am a 50 year old female German resident.

The horror started in July 2009 with a bird’s nest on top of the flat roof of my office building. After the birds fled the nest, the mites started getting in through the windows, crawling up my legs and biting my thighs. In 2010, an entomologist at the University in Dusseldorf diagnosed me with a blood-sucking mite.

Ivermectin

February 12, 2012 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, Herx, Ivermectin

The following information is culled from advice and reports from a friend who has benefitted from taking Ivermectin and claims to be free of parasites. I have just started with Durvet (mentioned below) and will provide my own results as I observe them. As always, this information is NOT medical advice. It is a first- and second-hand report of actions and apparent effects. Unlike the person who sent me this, I am also using F-6. Please see my separate reports on that. Here is what my friend said about Ivermectin:

APPARENT EFFECTS – My friend says the Ivermectin evidently killed her parasites in place rather than causing a herx/purge.

METHOD – She tried Ivermectin pills first, found horse paste gel more effective. She said Durvet apple-flavored gel tastes better and is easy to push up in the syringe and swallow the gel like a pill. This is how I have also been using it. We both take the Ivermectin by pushing the paste/gel out onto a finger, then swallowing it with some water, like a pill. That way, we don’t have to taste it.

Chin Up/Down Tools

February 11, 2012 By: kajay Category: Baths, Best Practices, F-Zymes, Skin, Tools

Parasites – is it just me, or do they naturally gravitate to the warmest, friendliest place in their world: MY HEAD.

Early on I was still shampooing in the shower, and dodging nasty bites as I washed them out of my hair. My first trick was lathering up top-down, then rinsing top-down, turning around under the water till the lather was off, and then hopping out of the shower. I’ve learned a thing or two since then. What do I recommend that you might not find on the internet (or you might)?

I have saved myself from much worse contamination by using the kitchen sink for everything from the neck up, covering my hair, and THEN showering the rest of me. Once I am done with my hair, it remains covered until it is time to get ready for work the next morning. Failure to follow this simple rule has cost me many miserable hours. So, in extreme detail, here is my nightly routine.

Note: My procedure has varied little over the years, only the chemicals have changed.

Pathogenic Agrobacterium

February 10, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Research

Although generally seen as an infection in plants, Agrobacterium can infect humans. One study suggested that Agrobacterium attaches to and genetically transforms several types of human cells by integrating its T-DNA into the human cell genome. The study (1) was conducted using cultured human tissue and did not draw any conclusions regarding related biological activity in nature. The idea that a fungal parasite could cause disease in humans is not new.

Neon Starfish

February 06, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Research

I use 60x magnification all the time. 100x is too big, 30x too small. 4x only helps for some of the monsters I’m getting out of me since I started MMS a couple or three months ago.

I have one of these VERY cheap portable lighted microscopes in every room, and an inexpensive Digivision digital next to my computer. The Digivision fits my hand, but I hate using the Digivision’s little red button to snap the shots–too much motion. So I use the scanning software built into Photoshop Elements 2.0, which came free with my Canon Lide50 scanner. It lets me hold the scope in one hand and click ENTER on my keyboard with the other.

Update 6/2011: I cannot make any of the drivers that have worked with my Digivision in the past work now. I guess until I can afford another camera (right now the F-5 is my priority), I am out of the digital microcam business.

Sadly not only do I not SEE as clearly through the digital, but the supposedly sharp 480×640 images are even worse. Thus a lot of things I have watched unfold through one or the other microscope I cannot prove, so I report what I saw, but as in the story below, I never try to claim anything as a valid conclusion, and I allow for the fact that if I saw it but I cannot show it to you, I have to be prepared for the fact that you may not believe me. It doesn’t change my own mind about what I saw, LOL!

Such as the still incredible to ME even story of “blue boy,” the globular baby blue fiber critter whom I was originally observing on my lint roller (I leave them on the roller, that way I have a handle and can turn them), which is when I saw that rascal spin around, all of his little black legs still stuck to the sticky sheet, flatten his body out to become a smaller target, or just because twisting only his body compressed his body, hadn’t thought of that before, like twisting a hot water bottle flattens it, forcing the water out…and thrust the end with two black dots on it toward me (the other end I had already observed had a black C or anus). Little rascal thought he could take me!!! Still funny to me.

Also there was the day I was idly looking at the lesion on my arm that won’t go away. It changes shape but is hard, intact, like a permanent fixture. It is not raw and red or cratered like the other kind of lesions we get. Anyway, I was watching it change its overall shape and decided I’d get my digital microscope and get some stills, save them as JPGs, then pop them into Windows movie maker and save them as a video (much smaller file than actual video).

However, when I turned off the microscope and started processing the photos, I saw something weird that I didn’t notice through the microscope. So I used CTRL+F6 which allows you to toggle through all open files in most any program in the order they were opened or scanned, and did it fast so I could see any motion. What I saw was two parallel bars, not sharp edged, but rounded like neon bulbs appear when lit, both glowing a reddish pink, like a red neon light, at the same time, then fading, then both glowing, and fading, over and over. They were pulsating! I chose not to brighten or enhance the photos in any way, and it is VERY difficult to see what I even want to show, but here is the video.

Neem Oil, Lesions, and Nosy Coworkers

February 05, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Supplements

Update: Like seabuckthorn berry oil, the neem oil ceased, after a while, to control my lesions.

The seabuckthorn mostly controlled them my lesions, but stained everything it touched an intense orange. That was a bit hard to explain to my coworkers and friends, in addition to the odd oily odor.

I have found that I am NOT allergic to neem oil as I thought. The neem oil not only does not break me out as I remembered, but it turns out it has a complex nutty FRAGRANCE that I find very appealing. It also is less staining, though, obviously, still oily.

My routine is this, and it is gradually resolving my lesions. That is, it seems to prevent the formation of new ones, and it makes the old ones get crusty and flake off. Morning, lunch, after work, and bedtime:

  1. Apply neem oil to skin WELL beyond the affected area, starting with the unaffected area and ending with the contaminated area, to reduce likelihood of spreading.
  2. Rub it in, which causes a lot of the sand in the sandpaper skin around the lesions to “rub up.”
  3. Once a lot of them are loosened up, wash the same area again a couple more times.
  4. Pat dry with clean paper towels, again working from uncontaminated to contaminated areas.
  5. Coat liberally with more neem oil.
  6. If no gloves were worn during previous application, wash palms and apply fresh neem oil to them.

For me, once the moisture has dried through the oil, I put on vinyl gloves. Especially when I am tired, this helps prevent me from carelessly contaminating my eyes or face.

The neem oil is of course not a silver bullet. I do not know of any immediate cures. But it is extremely helpful. Right now when I look at my arms, I see fading lesions, smaller than the ones that preceded them. Until I began using the neem, I was once again desperate as the seabuckthorn oil had ceased to prevent new lesions.

All this said, I am taking five seabuckthorn oil capsules morning and night. I am not sure yet what their role is in the healing process, but I am afraid to stop to find out if they are helping!

So that I can continue this routine away from home, I bought a dropper bottle of neem oil, which I refill and keep in my purse. At lunchtime and after work I go into our large ladies room and remove my suit jacket, then proceed with my routine. People walk in on me regularly and of course are curious. I act as though it is natural and make them ask me what I am doing or what I am using :-)

The answer I have devised is the most effective one I have stumbled upon:

I tell them that I am taking a supplement. This is a word that often produces a glazed expression, which is my cue to create a diversion or, for them, an out. I’ve found that an upbeat comment like “I am LOVING this crisp cold weather!” or “Do you know who did those adorable holiday decorations in the lounge?” works best.

Most nod with relief and go away. For those that do not, I lead the conversation to babies, weddings, or holiday decorations. For women, any of these topics usually clinches my victory, and my coworker goes away happy, having forgotten that I am up to my elbows in the sink in the ladies room.

Framed

February 04, 2012 By: kajay Category: Ammonia, F-Zymes, Indoors, Menthol crystals, Mixed Surfaces, Morgellons

If you have some type of infectious microorganism in your home, you probably already know you have to clean everything in your home that you want to keep.

Framed mirrors and pictures are no exception. I like to use lemon oil on wood, and of course ammonia is wonderful for cleaning the glass on framed pictures. Menthol crystals are another tool for protecting items that have a cavity or other place where you could sprinkle them.

Bypass Denial

January 30, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons

These things exist in accordance with the same behavioral mandate that drives all humans:

Above all – SURVIVE.

I am always, as are most people, reluctant to move away from “This can’t be happening” (denial). On the other hand, I fight the temptation to believe too easily. In addition, I try to avoid belief based on emotion, especially, in this case, the emotion of fear. I am a data seeker. I want, NEED, facts. But what facts do I have from which to hypothesize? to draw conclusions? I have plenty. They might mean something only to me, because they fall outside of what I think most people want to believe, outside what my doctor, pest control operator, and dermatologist know and, in some cases, want to believe or can find in their premier trade publications and encyclopedias.

These “things” have made me question my sanity, and also question the prescription in my reading glasses! They are so beautiful, so remarkable, that it is hard to hate them until they bite me again, often but not always without breaking my skin. Only when they break the skin and a dot of fresh blood appears on the surface do those with me believe, and then they only believe the bite, because only a sufferer knows the whole story.

Watching the critters through the lens of a microscope confirms to me their power as opponents. That they respond – often so quickly – to stimuli explains why they adapt to our many protocols, why we must keep changing what we do in order to maintain momentum in our battle against them.

History – and Hope

January 24, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Psychological Effects, Skin

I’m a turkey hunter. One day in May, in the late 80’s, I carried the cooling carcass of a large gobbler from the woods while its parasitic populace happily hopped onto me. After that, I just thought my house had developed an awful flea problem, so I bombed it, and bombed it. I didn’t know it was all about me.

In the late 90’s, a temp moved into my workspace for a month of training. She hinted about a nightmarish condition that had ruined her life. When she left the department, she also left me with a new parasite. I thought I had brought the “fleas” to work. After I requested a second pesticide treatment in my office, a longtime coworker discreetly told me what I had not realized before: I was the only person being bitten. That was difficult to process but explained everything. An email buddy suggested scabies and, as horrifying as that was, I was grateful to have a start point for my research.

I bought a portable microscope, found some great online resources (see links), upgraded to a digital microscope, started

  • A defunct website called livingwithcritters.com.
  • This blog.

Like many others, I went through the emotional phases that follow trauma, and for some time considered suicide.

My area docs responded about like everyone else’s. It turns out that a little article called Delusory Parasitosis, by Nancy Hinkle, is published in three key professional trade encyclopedias: medical, entomological, and pest control – just in case you wondered why they acted like that and said all those mean things.

Through frantic trial and error, I found products and protocols that made life bearable for me while I continued to seek a solution.

I adapted enough to continue working, learned to prevent transmission, averted brain fog (so far), and ducked lesions until 2010.  The Morgellons, or whatever this is, began really accelerating my aging in the past couple of years and I knew that though I had won many battles, I was losing the war.

Before F-5

January 22, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons

I have had various parasitic pathogens since I was infested after a turkey hunt in the late 80’s. I did not know the problem was inside of my body. I thought my house had a really bad flea problem, so I bombed and bombed. For the next decade, the internal infestation grew to a profound level.

One of the most significant effects was that my body became a more attractive habitat for other pathogens, and in the late 90’s, a woman who briefly shared my workspace infested it – and me – with an additional pathogen. That one brought its own, and they made it known from the beginning that they were inside me, that they had invaded me to a highly intimate and terrifying degree.

I tried everything I read anywhere, I bought every lotion, cream, treatment, pesticide, that I could find.

Within three years, the direct and indirect costs had risen to six figures. I joined internet groups, published websites of my own, and made a few very good friends within the community. As a group, we experienced ostracism and rejection, and found no help in the medical, entomological, or pest control industries. Those who were lucky had the support of their families. My husband, who does not have it, and never caught it, is wonderful. Other than that, my online support group was all I had, since the rest of my family and most of the docs I visited did not believe me and could not help me.

That the medical community refused to recognize whatever it is I have meant no insurance coverage – not that that would have paid for all the laundering, the power used for all the extra drying, the dry cleaning for those who could afford it, help cleaning the house, all the chemicals for the house, all the products bought that did not work but that we could not return (75 percent of the costs in my case). It also meant that when I had a very bad day due to crawling (no sleep) or a fresh lesion (whose bleeding I could not stop completely) or nausea (when I was using MMS improperly) and a dozen other things that caused me to call in sick or go in late, I had to “clean up” my excuses. No one wanted the truth, it was too scary. When I did talk about it, even though I had figured out how to prevent transmission through prevention, the assumption was that I presented a danger to others, when in fact, because of my protocols, I did not. So secrecy and lack of validation was bad – and good.

And then one of my good friends called me and told me about F-5. I ordered it at once. From the day after the night when I first sprayed the liquid mixture on myself after my shower, I have not had a single big lesion. I have had 1/8″ spots that almost immediately turned brownish but they do not bleed. It was 95 today and I wore a cap sleeved shirt. My arms are clear. Only one stubborn spot hasn’t cleared up, but it will. That will be a big day.

Safely Social, Part 1

January 11, 2012 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, F-Zymes, Indoors, Morgellons, Psychological Effects, Safely Social

How do I avoid transmitting this disease to others without giving up a social life? Obviously compromises are in order. Here are the ones I have made, and they seem to be working for me because I have been sick with this disease for a while with no known transmission to others:

Social Life

There is no reason to forego a social life. What I do is graciously accept invitations to people’s homes (but never invite them to mine no matter how many times I have to change the subject) and then simply do not go. That is easier than declining while everyone is looking at me. Right! Instead, I meet people in public places that I know are vacuumed or mopped daily or more often in some cases.

I did stop attending a bible study because everyone hugged, all the time. Had I at the outset indicated that I preferred not to be hugged, it would have been accepted, but I did not want to explain why I was suddenly saying that after hugging freely for a couple of years. Simply simpler. I miss that group, they were wonderful, and of course I miss the hugs, but I am not short of friends or social life, I just have to have it on slightly different terms.

I did also choose to stop attending a church with upholstered bench seats. Fortunately it was not a church I had attended long and I realize that choice would be much more difficult for many of you. Instead, I found a small church with folding metal chairs. I can dash in discreetly after the service and swipe the one I used with a disinfecting cloth and no one is the wiser. If someone comes in, I’m there to pray, right?

Check back tomorrow for more on protecting others through simple preventive measures.

Old Timers

January 10, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Psychological Effects

So why should you listen to the old-timers?
If they really wanted to get well they would BE well
after all this time, right?

Right. They got this and their first thought was,
“I’ve been waiting all my life for this demonic plague.
I think I’ll go swing in my hammock
while they EAT ME!!!”

Yeah.

If an old timer takes the time to share with you, chances are you need to listen. They may not be well, but they have obviously got the biggest barrel of what NOT to do of anyone. Plus, they are not just victims, they are SURVIVORS. Every soldier needs to know how to live through the battle, and that is where they can help you.

Warm and Fuzzy

January 09, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Indoors, Morgellons

Your unwanted pets love to wait for you in the fibers of your carpet, curtains, and upholstered furniture. Make sure you treat all of these thoroughly with a combination borate and insect growth regulator. Use an organic knockdown of your choosing to prevent biting while you treat your favorite recliner (you might want to get something comfy but easier to clean!), those wonderful sound-absorbing, insulating draperies in your bedroom, or you might just want to ditch it all and save yourself the maintenance.

Selfishly Guarded

January 05, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Research

Some things should never be shared:

  • Clothes, unless dry cleaned or boiled
  • Towels and bedding, unless boiled
  • Wood furniture, unless sterilized, including joints, crevices, feet
  • Keyboards, probably never
  • Upholstered furniture
  • Pets, unless cleared by a vet

C’mon, post a comment. Tell us what you no longer share – at least not until this plague leaves your body…

River, Egypt

January 04, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Psychological Effects, Research

In case you don’t know this quote, it goes like this: “Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.”

If you have this disease, in any of its many forms, “This can’t be happening” serves only the parasites. Anger is about as useless. The best place to turn that energy is in learning about the disease and finding out the various things that have worked for some of us. You are here, which shows that you are already searching. Don’t quit.

Do you have any clue what you have? If you don’t, go on ebay and search for a “pocket lighted microscope 60-100x.” You can always upgrade to a real microscope or a cheap digital one later. For now, you just want to know what’s “eating” you, right?

It is easy to say, this can’t be happening, but it is, so what do I do now? The answer is, research. No one has all the answers, but there are a lot of answers out there, especially on the internet. Some of them may help you. There are no guarantees. What works for someone else may not work for you. Think before you spend and then know you may find you have wasted your money. Unfortunately, this is more often the case than not.

Only you can decide what you can afford or have time to try, or what your body and family can take. Just remember, speed is of the essence. You must do whatever it takes to learn as much as you can, as fast as you can. Focus on those who have beaten it, but do not ignore the wisdom of those still battling.

Just Do It – Now, Please

January 03, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Psychological Effects, Research

When you catch yourself feeling sorry for yourself, like your life is over, reread this post.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

You have one life. You are sick. Lots of people are sicker. Your odds of getting well are far better, say, than those of someone who is about to be hit by a garbage truck. Find SOMETHING to be thankful for. (I know, it feels like your whole life was hit by a truck.)

Things to focus on: the faster you accept that this is your situation right now, the faster you can start fighting it effectively. Crying and yelling are only band-aids. They don’t really help.

YEAH YEAH

It is going to sound crazier than you feel right now, but look for things that are beautiful ANYway. Think of things you can be grateful for. Above all, LAUGH – laugh at the freaking absurdity of the situation. What the heck else can we do?

DO’S AND DON’TS

DON’T share your desperate plight with those who do not have this. It will not help. It will hurt. You will become, to them, any or all of these: crazy, dangerous, unemployable, unloveable, untouchable, and much more. DON’T SHARE. Not with them, anyway.

DO find the various communities of parasite sufferers online. That is the only smart and appropriate place to dump all your feelings out without real-life negative consequences. That said, you are not paying them. They do not work for you. They do not OWE you a reply to your post. They too are going broke, losing their jobs (because they talked to the wrong people), getting no sleep, clawing at their skin, railing against their unfair plight. Be patient when your posts go unanswered. Busy groups have so many posts daily that the new ones are quickly buried by the newer ones. So repost your questions until someone sees and answers them.

DO find and read the posts on this blog about preventing others from catching this from you. Some simple precautions can ensure that you can continue to function in society as a whole, keep your job, live in the same house with a non-sufferer. The precautions are not a guarantee, at least by me. Each situation is different. However, ve have vays of keeping others safe so we can live among them till we are again one of them.

GROUP ETIQUETTE

Never yell at your new support network, or use all caps (the same as yelling). Do not waste your time or theirs picking apart their posts. JUST LISTEN. Okay, I’m shouting. BE KIND. Even when others do not know to put their anger aside when they post–it is not about you! They just want their life back, too. Like you, they had other plans.

Keyboards

January 02, 2012 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, F-Zymes, Morgellons

It is important to keep your hands and face scrubbed and to wash them as often as possible. Use of a heavy hand cream or lotion often reduces activity.

Keyboards can be cleaned various ways. The most effective is to vacuum them with the dusting attachment of a vacuum cleaner. You can run your vac’s accessories in the dishwasher (I wouldn’t run them with the dishes :-)

You can also run a disinfectant wipe between the keys with a steak knife, or you can cut up a lint roller sheet and use the pieces to clean between the keys.

However, the best way to avoid contaminating and becoming contaminated from a keyboard is to wear disposable vinyl gloves. Why vinyl? Because latex gloves stretch, which makes typing difficult, and they fall apart quickly. Vinyl gloves are thus more economical (last longer) and sterile (broken gloves allow contaminant transfer).

Saving Memories

January 01, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Mixed Surfaces, Morgellons

This is a war. We didn’t ask for it, but we got it. It will take a minute to win it, and we can win it faster if we identify ways to reduce habitat and time-consuming maintenance for you. We can also save money, as those cleaning supplies add up quickly.

It is understandable if we are determined to keep our books and china and our collections of country quilts and on and on. But for the moment, we might want to store those books in boxes packed with menthol crystals, wash our china in an ammonia-based cleaner and pack them with bubbles and more menthol or diatomaceous earth or some other method of keeping critters out, get them as sterile as we can, rent a storage space if we can afford it, and get them out of the war zone. Many people throw these things away, but if we can set aside our anger and desperation in favor of methodically and thoroughly sterilizing these things prior to removing them from our home, we might be able to salvage them.

I hope.

And if when I unpack my things they contaminate us, then we will have to make the final, hard choice.
