* (Pre Malassezia) – Diary *
* Photos of Innocent Times Entries *
* In the Beginning … It was Not!… *
According to the Blogger Statistics Records I created my First Blog
sometime in May 2009 under the Alias ‘Sonatas Story’
The story though had really started somewhere middle February
but there were Neither a Diary nor any Entries of any sort
because i believed i had caught Fleas at the Local Pool
from the School kids – being hot during that time of year-
and was sure i could get rid of them within a couple of days.
As the case got progressively worse and utterly mystifying
forcing me into complex … ‘creative solutions’
and need to record progress – while still retaining an optimistic outlook
i judged a little Book would be good enough for recording it all
innocently thinking ‘It will do! … won’t be for long anyway…’
Here is the Little Book, up and until something Bigger was needed!
These Entries have never been Published before
and i intend to present them ‘Raw’ and unmodified
exactly as they were entered at the time just for my own view
but the Readers can gain some insight and have Fun too 🙂
They are the proverbial ‘Photos Worth a Thousand Words’
in showing the stages of Innocent Ignorance,
Plunging form Optimism to Utter Despair, Frustration,
Temporary Disillusionment and often Explosive Anger
in Alternating Rounds in the Mercy of Unfolding Circumstances.
Why am i doing So?…
Because i believe it will help Illustrate the Lengths gone through,
the Emotional Roller-Coasters and Instil some Hope into any Souls
that might be Fighting -or worse- Sinking into Depths of Despair …
I will Skip any Boring Repetitive Pages
or take Photos of some ‘Interesting’ Parts in a Page
So here it goes!

No!… they are not Lice
… they must be Scabies!…
A Sample of initial Natural ‘Home-made Remedies’
You are Allowed to Laugh Out… Loud! 🙂
I Laugh too seeing it but i really want to cry.
Surprisingly the Rice one worked!
It Sealed Dry the area and whatever lurking there
met its untimely destiny but was messy, hard to wash off
and like anything else … to this day … more kept coming…
Morning … Noon …. Night….
*Please don’t take notice of any… ‘Mifspellinfs’… i was a desperate girl!

Applied Eucalyptus OIL … did I Say???
And… Applied some More …. Did I?…
( If Only I had known back then!… 😦 )
Hell’s Rotating Wheel…
By that stage i had Noticed a 3-4 1/2 day Operation Cycle of the ‘Creature’
and on Left side of Diary attempting to guess and record the ‘where’ in it
and the level of its activity during Morning, Noon, Evening, Night.
On the far Right Abbreviated Ingredients and Treatments used.
And in the Glorious Middle the Horrors of Cyclical Manifestations
with a Bit – or a Lot of – Hope, Frustration, Desperation …
or -to quote the titles of a series i have never watched- of
downright… ‘Murder She Wrote!’ …
expressed in Indelicate language … ‘For Her Eyes Only’
Of Note: The word ‘Relocation’ was starting to dawn
“I may have Dislodged them from my Ear”
How Very Intuitive… of me!
The word ‘Relocation’ was starting to dawn
but took a long, long time to truly sink in
and its practical implications.
Tormented Sleepless Nights and Feverish Activity
I had given names to what i now know
as stages of development of the same creature.
Runners, Crawlers, Diggers, etc…
The Enforced Sweat and Heat Treatment
I have described in detail the Sweat and Heat treatments
in the *Malassezia Blog* entry “Lethal strategies of the Past”
Morning – Noon – Evening – Night
Actually ‘Bloody Hell Day 1’ is really Day 3 or 4.
Day 1 is now discovered and established as the Quiet one
counting the Blessing of the Temporary Lull
as well as the ticking hours to stages Day 2 – Day 3 … etc
Did it Really???… Why don’t we wait until Evening, hey?…
Would that be the now Known Re-inviting effect of the emollients
in the Scabiecide, combined with the Day 2-3 hell braking loose? …
Some Light at the end of the Tunnel???
… Or Simply a Mirage in an Endless Desert?
