At Let‘s Be P. A. L.S (Pros Against Lice Service) It’s a message we hear a lot. We always try to answer our phone but in the event that all of our lice technicians are out on Head Lice treatment calls a messaging system takes the call and “We have Head Lice – Heeeelp!” is one of the most heard messages we receive.
We listen to the messages with compassion and empathy. There are all kinds of phone personalities but always a hint of anxiety and that’s normal. Head Lice can bring even the strongest person to their knees.
I was combing my hair out after an appointment and thought I saw a louse in the comb and I actually had a little gasp of shock where I lost my breath for a moment. I’ve been combing head lice out of peoples heads for over 10 years and have had cases where 50 or more lice/eggs came out per comb swipe.
Head Lice don’t phase me, I just like to help people get rid of them, but when it was my OWN head well the reaction was instinctively different. The shock factor automatically took over. I went into super charge reaction mode. So not only do I know what it’s like to have a child with head lice and battle it for months, I’ve also experienced (for a very looooonng moment) what it felt like to think I had lice myself.
I can’t really explain why the initial reaction was so shocking, but I know that it was and I can truly understand where Moms are coming from when they are looking for help with head lice.
