This morning, tuesday, when I was combing my hair I discovered a tick on my head. It must have been sitting there since before I left home yesterday morning or probably I got it from our bed since our cats are sleeping there too. It’s very strange though that I didn’t feel it after taking a shower before I left home. There is no way I could get it from my hotel bed at this hospital I am staying now.
Anyway, I tried to get rid of it but I don’t have any instrument to take it off. I asked the reception if they had a tweezers but they didn’t have any, not anyone at the hospital. So I tried to take it off with my long finger nails and finally succeeded after many attempts. I was so afraid because I got it on my head and I am feeling very ill. I really hope this won’t affect me.
To my surprise, I saw the tick was very flat and it didn’t seem to suck any blood at all. If I am right, it had been there in 2 days. It is not even moving, it seemed to be dead. I supposed my blood is also poisonous right now. I have had chemotherapy 6X, the last one last friday. Maybe that’s the reason why it died
