A tick on my head!

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 

This tick sucked up onto my head for about 1 or 2 days before I discovered it. Poor one, it dies of my blood! it had no idea that I too can be toxic, perhaps even more.

I am a swedish citizen with asian origin, lives in Sweden, entrepreneur, accountant, fashion designer, dressmaker, professional interpreter and translator and from year 2014, I also became a local politician with some assignments from the local government. I moved to Sweden after marriage with a Swedish national in 1986. Two years later we got a son followed by a daughter after 21 months. Satisfied with life in fact, I guess I got all I wished for, it feels I have everything. Being married is not just a bed of roses, the roses have thorns also and you can get it at times but we’ve always been doing pretty good. Kinder and better husband I do not think I can get, everyone has their flaws and life becomes easier if you can accept them. I’m not a perfect person either. I became a grandmother quite young, only 45 years old, was a little skeptical at first but then I loved to be one. Now I am already a grandmother of two, a boy and a girl of 20 months between them, such a great feeling, it feels like it was a replay of my life. When I have both of them at home, it feels like I was young again and is the mother of small children. I can not explain but so damn good it is. When I moved to Sweden I knew nothing about the country, but now it feels like I’ve always lived here. I speak Swedish better than my native language, better in Swedish grammar than my husband, it may sound strange but it’s true. I dream even in Swedish. I hang out with many Swedes, have worked and still working in Swedish companies. I go to the Swedish church though I am a Roman Catholic. We believe in the same God anyway. I’ve adapted pretty well in Swedish society. I think I have to adjust to that country I moved to, not the country or its citizens to adapt to me. Sweden has no responsibility whatsoever that I wanted to move here so I could not demand anything else, but now a citizen, I think I have the right as any other native Swedes. I pay taxes and do my duties as a citizen. I think I am a good role model and a loyal citizen and can fight for my new country.
