When the Bed Bugs Bite

I developed this really nasty case of bed bug bites - and I don't even have a bed to begin with. How unfair is that?

For the past couple of months I have been sleeping on the floor, on the mattress carried over from my dorm days. And the past couple of weeks random appendages just started swelling up - first the fingers on my left hand and then my entire right arm. I was the office freak again - people would approach me and ask if they can take a look at my freak fingers. The last time this happened was when I had subconjunctival hemorrhage, but that didn't hurt so it was cool.

So anyway, I figured it's time I get a real bed. So last weekend I went ahead and bought one. I had no idea it would be so expensive - the bed, the mattress, the pillows, and the new pretty sheets (I got a little carried away). They delivery truck came by today, and after a lot of moving and hammering and cleaning up, I moved into this tiny tiny room with a brand new bed with brand new pillows and brand new sheets. And I have been spraying the entire room like crazy, so I seriously hope the bed bugs stay away this time.
