Once upon a time, in a land far away (or in Downtown Orlando, Florida) to be precise, a woman tried on wedding dresses with her friends, excited for one of the most special days in her life.
She tried on a dress that made her feel like a princess. She fluffed up the gown and fluffed up her hair. But suddenly, she felt something behind her ear, something sharp and small. Confused, the woman pulled that thing out and gasped. It was a lice, wriggling and alive.
Stopping herself from screaming just in time, the woman called in her mother, shaking. The two of them got out of there as quickly as they could. But not before she left her maid of honor in shock that she was getting out because she had lice.
This is how I found out that I had lice a month before my wedding.
You’d think at 24, I would know that lice aren’t dangerous. Of course they’re not. They’re gross, but they’re not dangerous. But the truth is, when an adult gets lice, we sort of freak out because we just don’t expect to get it. But lice don’t see age. They just see a head they can get blood from.
After crying a bit and saying “these lice are going to ruin my wedding, I’ll be the laughing stock of the whole family, what the heck do I do?” my mother calmed me and sat me down so she could look at the extent of the infestation and oh, boy!
Being a teacher in an elementary school, I guess I should have seen that coming. But the lice and nits that my mother found were a bit too much. Apparently I had been so caught up in preparing for the wedding that I hadn’t even noticed my itchy scalp.
My mom’s first suggestion was that she would get those over-the-counter products and get rid of the lice but I knew better. I saw how one kid had an allergic reaction to a lice treatment her father gave her and I needed to steer clear of it.
Instead, I went to the one place I could trust. Having seen them in action at school during inspections and screenings, I knew they would be able to help me. Lice Busters USA in Winter Park was the best choice. They use natural, all-safe treatments so I wasn’t at all worried about any side effects. The experts there were so nice and professional, even though I was probably babbling because of my anxiety.
They told me I had to come to their lice clinic a few times so they could make sure the lice were gone, and I did. Affordable and close-by, I was able to get my louse problem removed, just in time for the big day.
And bonus, my darling partner didn’t even find it, neither did he get lice. I guess sometimes, not having hair at all can be a blessing for some.
While I got lice at a very inopportune moment, if any adult or child has lice, I recommend going to Lice Busters USA straight away. It’s the best and fastest way of getting rid of lice!
