    someone wants to hire me out to be their nanny. the thing is its in texas and im in colorado. I havent told them this but my apt building has had issues with bedbugs. myself included, half of us had to have heat treatment, im one of them, the rest have had to have their place sprayed. I've had issues finding work where I am and would love to take this job but I dont want to infest someone's home. I've thought of just taking a change of clothes, essencial stuff like meds, toothpaste, etc and important papers and leave the rest behind. I cant be lifting heavy boxes myself so id rather get help, the place has been treated so its not like the bugs can go anywheres. just wondered if i should hire someone to go thru my stuff and either donate it somewheres or trash it. the people that want to hire me seem really nice people. I might do a contract with them so that way it protects me from being thrown out the minute i get there. but what im wondering is how do i do this without bringing bugs with me. I myself am tired of them and its one reason why i want to take the job. Its very rare for someone to be that interested in hiring me so I might never get this opportunity again. and no i did not tell them about the bugs.Im thinking of just bringing almost nothing to avoid problems. anyone else had issues with them and what do you do if you need to move and dont want to bring them with you? any suggestions? I do want the job, just not the bugs. so how do i do this?

    ever since I've had to leave the resort over two hip implants 5 1/2 yrs ago I have not been able to find a job I can keep. It's really hard to get a job where I am, and for some reason people have discriminated and id lose jobs cause of it. Not only cant I find work but where I live I cant find friends to hang out with. I live in an apt and my neighbors wont do nothing with me, they never visit, I rarely get to do anything with anyone not even in church. if i go to church noone except on rare occasions will ask me to do anything with them. I do have a friend from the resorts that lives 45 minutes away but I only see her once a month. most of the time Im isolated from people cause it takes money to get involved with stuff and im out of work. now someone thru this nanny company wants to hire me, theyre in texas, they seem like a nice family and they want to hire me rather than the other people theyve interviewed. its rare for someone to want me. Im nervous cause its all happening so fast but im tired of the isolation and not having friends to do stuff with and also not having a job. yes, they know about my hip implants, and theyre okay with it. I rarely get people interested in me like this if at all. they live in texas so i get rid of snow which i hate. It would be weird living with a family but i hate being alone anyways, dont have one of my own. I have references i can work and theyre willing to do a contract. so is this worth taking?

  • Does anyone know how long it takes for an apt building to get funding for heat treatment for bedbugs?

    My apt building has had issues with bedbugs for months, I was supposed to get heat treatment last wk but they decided to do them all at once within 3 days and now I cant get it till they get permission to fund it. thats been almost 2 wks since they asked for funding.

    My apt building has had issues with bedbugs for months, I was supposed to get heat treatment last wk but they decided to do them all at once within 3 days and now I cant get it till they get permission to fund it. thats been almost 2 wks since they asked for funding. I cant wait anymore and neither can my neighbors. half of us have had issues with bugs, myself included. thanks to the bugs i no longer have a bed to sleep in. not sure if i'll replace it, i might just sleep on the couch like ive been doing, at least theyre not there. I dont want to get another bed right now cause i dont want to give them another home to live in. I dont see them as much right now cause of the bed being gone but i still see them. I think lately they cant go thru the vents cause theyve turned the heat on.I think they die in the vents. I have neighbors that cant get homecare cause they wont come cause of the bugs, the guys with oxygen wont deliver cause of bugs either, so thats ridiculous, not sure why theyre waiting so long. they need to do this fast since those bugs get babies fast. I dont think i will replace my bed right now cause i want them to get it all done and if i do i might get a blow up, i dont want to give them a home to live in. any suggestions other than moving and leaving my stuff behind which ive been tempted to do. any idea of how long this will take? i feel sorry for the people that cant get what they need cause of it, especially aides and oxygen,its wrong.

    I've had them for a while and like a dummy i tried to deal with it myself. I got pest repellers, I sprayed a lot, i got traps, and even a mattress cover, nothing worked except i think the pest repellers mightve kept a lot of them away or id be seeing more of them than i am, i usually will see one or two at a time. I got to the point where nothing was working and went to management in my apt buidling, neighbors have had the same issues, now the pest control guy is going to pay me a visit next wk, I dont have to pay for it cause its hud unless i bring them back once they treat it. I dont know if the guy is going to use his special spray or do heat treatments, i get the feeling it might be the heat stuff cause its been going on for a while. Im kind of nervous about it but im also fed up with having them, theyre mostly around my bed and ive seen them on the couch too before but not as often. just wondered how others dealt with it. the manager told me to use alcohol rub instead of the sprays cause they dont work and ive been seeing less and it keeps them out of my bed that way. at first i didnt know i had them but i was getting bit and didnt know why until i saw them, theyre so gross. just got to the point where i needed help outside myself and decided to ask for it. any suggestions? this is totally driving me crazy. Im nervous about the guy coming next wk too. and i hope i dont get in trouble for waiting too long either. so what do others do in this situation?

    My birthday is coming up and its the same story every yr, except for my twin sister my other siblings will only call me on that day, and then i dont hear from them unless its their birthday or mine, I have tried to contact them in between by emailing or whatever and im lucky if they respond, I have nieces that are teenagers and i feel like theyre strangers, if i try to facebook them or email them its like talking to the walls, they dont live in the same state. same with my brothers, its like talking to the wall too if i contact them in between birthdays, so every yr they call me on my birthday and it makes me feel like theyre doing it out of obligation, not cause they really want to talk to me. I have even told one of my brothers that i wish he would call on other days as well and not wait a yr to call, he said he would but didnt, i have a half sister that calls my twin all the time but wont call me, and that includes birthdays, have no idea what i did, I have cousins that probably will just email me and not call, I heard my aunt and uncle are just going to email, all these relatives i only hear from them on the big day. Im getting tired of all this. I have taken off on my birthday before just to skip on those calls but then some call the next day so that defeats the purpose, I thought of putting my phone off line but then they'll probably email anyways which defeats that purpose, not sure what to do but im resenting the fact that thats the only time they will call.

I do have this friend ive known for yrs before i moved here when i was working in the resorts and i get to see her once in a while but she lives 45 minutes away so shes not in the same town. I go to church and stuff but after a while you get tired of people never inviting you anywheres. im used to visiting people in their homes and going out with them but where i live that seems impossible. I dont have a job so its not like i can see people at work, I thought of something like the big sister program but i think you need to work before they let you do that. thought of visiting people in nursing homes but i heard where i live you cant do that, thought of volunteering where im meeting those kinds of needs and getting my own needs met at the same time. any suggestions? Im tired of living like this to be honest. I live in an apt building and not even my neighbors will ever knock on my door to ask me to go anywheres with them, theyve ignored me on birthdays, christmas, etc., I feel like a loner but not by choice and wondered how i can turn that around. im short so ive wondered if people were discriminating since i lost a job one time when i was handing out samples in stores and this lady came to train me and when she saw how short i was mustve told the company, she was telling me how i couldnt reach stuff, then the company canned me. not even guys will date me. any suggestion

    Ive had issues with them lately and i had a pest repeller that i was using but not specifically for them and it worked for a while, i had to trash, sheets, pillows and blankets, Later I got another one specifically for bedbugs and plugged that one in my bedroom and the other one in the living rm, the ones in the living rm i havent seen in over a wk, while the ones in my bedroom i still see once in a while, one time when i was frustrated i moved the first pest repeller in and plugged it near the other one, i dont know if its true but i read that if you put two pest repellers in the same room they can cancel each other out, but i thought it would work but after seeing some this morning i took one of the out and kept the one in specifically for those bugs. sometimes i might not see them at all for two days and then all of a sudden see them, ive had the new pest repeller in two wks now so why am i still seeing them, Ive sprayed around my bed too. management here wont do anything if youre just seeing one or two at a time, they'll just spray and i can do the same on my own, i cant lift the mattress so if i needed to get rid of it id have to ask someone to get it and get me another one and pay for it which ive thought about doing. my neighbors get them too, they wont do the heat treatment for just a couple of them. so how long once you have a pest repeller before it starts working? im tired of always having to inspect my bed before sleeping in it, any suggestions ?

    I've lived here over 5 yrs and the past 14 months they have torn down the library a block away to make room for this conference center and theyre making this motel and parking lot, since i live down the street from all the noise im honestly fed up with it, i get up earlier than i would like, dont need an alarm when i get woken up by loud beeps, Im listening to it now too, they do this all day, every day, and sometimes on saturday so i can never sleep in. ever. cause i get up earlier sunday cause of church, even if i sleep with a fan and earplugs they wake me up anyways, ive heard this at night too. I was going to school but because of all the demolition noise and the constant beeping and hammering and drilling i could never study at home, couldnt read nothing for school and if id go to the school library people would talk, so i was getting d's in my classes all fall and spring. till i flunked out. last friday someone told me the name of the hotel theyre building so i looked it up online and wrote a message to them explaining how i was having a hard time with the noise and how i lost my only income too, cause of it i cant get grants, and wondered if they could hire me. figured they owe me one. today, the lady i wrote to calls me, she probably got my number from the resumes i sent out to her, she told me about the job fair theyre having on fri and sat all day and how they might hire on the spot, and gave me the address, do you think they'll hire me?

    I've been dealing with this for over 5 yrs, I was working in resorts and had to leave over two hip implants and a knee surgery. I cant get ssi, cant get welfare money cause of being single, I cant go to school, ive tried but i end up with d's and now Im not sure i can stay. I might have some kind of learning disability and i might take that up with ssi, since trying with physical problems didnt work, im thinking of trying the psych stuff like learning disabilities, stuff like that. I dont have a boyfriend around to take care of me, my parents are dead so no help there and my siblings could care less. I have hud and foodstamps and medicaid but you cant buy toilet paper with foodstamps, hud wont let you start your own business so i cant even sell avon, thought of donating plasma since where i live they will pay you for it but once when i tried it they couldnt find a vein. I dont have relatives i can go to for help either. jobs wont hire me and if they do they wont keep me, i think they discriminate against me cause im short, I once went handing out samples in stores and when they came to train me they saw how short i was and i wasnt going to be able to reach stuff so they wouldnt let me work. I cant even so much as find a babysitting job or even walking dogs. any suggestions on what I can do to make money when noone will hire me? Im just out of ideas. I do have a friend that will help me out if i need it but i cant afford to be out of work, i have allergies too.
