Soooo I have creepy crawly skin thanks to my nerve endings firing off random signals Sometimes this means I'm having a CFS flareup, sometimes it means my meds are doing something weird, and sometimes it's anxiety. But whatever it is, right now I'm just all crawly from head to foot. And some units in our apartment building have sprayed for ants recently, so they've been retreating into surrounding areas. Which means now I have ants. Not a whole lot of ants! But they're here! Which means that for the past few days I've had phantom ants crawling all over me and also sometimes real ones. They both feel exactly the same. It is hellish. Spoiler: bug talk ygghhhh Which, as far as house guests go, ants aren't terrible--compared to some of the other pests i've had to deal with while living here, they are dainty little harmless walking punctuation marks. If they didn't do the creepy hivemind crawl-up-the-wall-in-a-line thing I could probably tolerate it better. In nature, that's neat! In my apartment it squicks me right out, I don't know why. I see them and I instantly get queasy. It's this creeping horror, like, I'm tidy and careful about food, but I never know what might be overlooked and oh god, did I leave something that attracted them, what did i doooo? I peeked under the microwave at one point and found a bit of toast they were having a little party around. Ygghhhhh. I have since searched everywhere else i could possibly think of and so far things are ok. I also put down traps, which I absolutely hate doing, but I can't stand them being here. Not with my skin crawling like this. I wish I could just poof them somewhere nice where they could do their thing far away from me.
