I have a constant and deep fear of bedbugs. I've never had them and never want to. I blame my paranoia on the years I lived in New York when I'd hear about stores getting closed down and knew people who suffered from their horribleness. Any bump or itch I get makes me immediately think of bedbugs and I have to send a picture to my obliging friend who will evaluate and then talk me down. You think this is bad? You should see the precautions I take in hotels.
