Lizards!

- Just the sight of them makes me so nervous...even with small lizards...i don't want the cold skin and sticky body touch me....one lizard falling from the ceiling, will send me scampering...I have requested from John not to have lizards in our home when I get there... he has to ensure that the whole place is free of lizards...i hope it will be a lizard-free home :whistle:

Jo :D

They are disgusting...but I know they are used medically... I found this story... hopefully this will never happen to you. :P

Pam Mitchell knew the maggots were working when her foot started bleeding.

Four years ago, a small cut on Mitchell's left heel turned into an diabetes-related infection two inches wide and down to the bone. Another wound developed in her right foot, owing to dry, cracked skin. Doctors tried everything—creams, antibiotics—but nothing worked.

"My doctor told me to give it up, see a psychologist, and have my foot amputated," she recalls.

Mitchell, now 52, had to make a decision soon because the powerful antibiotic that doctors prescribed for her infection was also wreaking havoc on her bones. Mitchell was preparing to undergo a dangerous bone marrow transplant when a friend remembered watching a TV show about European doctors using maggots to treat wounds like Mitchell's. With nothing to lose, she tried it.

Mitchell found a dermatologist willing to perform the procedure, and soon had 600 live maggots wriggling inside the wound on her left foot, 400 in her right, where they were sealed in gauze and left for two days.

Grudging acceptance

When it came time to remove the maggots, Mitchell's doctor was more than a little repulsed. "He had never dealt with them before and he said it was like watching a Wes Craven movie," Mitchell remembers. He was also impressed, because the maggot treatment seemed to be working.

Over the course of 10 such treatments, wounds that months of expensive procedures could not mend began to heal.

Today, Mitchell walks normally and both wounds are completely healed. She is now a member of the board for the Biotherapeutics Education and Research Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes the medical use of maggots.

"They didn't just save my feet, they saved my life," Mitchell told LiveScience. "They're better than anything man can come up with because I've tried everything."

A growing number of doctors are starting to agree. Maggots are useful because they help remove dead tissue and expose healthy tissue, a process called debridement. Maggot debridement therapy was popular in the early part of the last century but went out of vogue when antibiotic use became widespread.

But maggots are now making a comeback, and they are increasingly being used to treat ulcers, gangrene, skin cancer, and burns. Research also suggests maggots may help decrease the risks of infections after surgery.

I think I'd do it if it meant saving my foot or leg, but just like with needles, I'd turn and look the other way. :P

None of the above...

but wind spooks me.

Woke in the middle of the night to a threat of a tornado inthe area about 9 years ago. My ex and I had a plan... we knew who was responsible for which child. I went to grab my daughter from her bed, bed clothes and all, when a tree landed outside on the porch roof which was right outside her window. Scraped the window and crashed just as I was picking her up. It was the scariest moment of my life and I've never liked wind since.

With all of the creatures mentioned so far, you have some degree of 'control'. You are at the mercy of the wind and whatever it brings during a storm.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

jelly fish :P and squids :P I can't even look at them on television. A woman at work has a jelly fish picture on her desktop, I don't even like that! They're yucky and creepy and freaky. I've had panic attacks when we go to the beach if I see a jelly fish. One time the entire beach was covered in them. I thought I would die.

Squid is very tasty tho breaded and deep fried ;) I can eat it if it no longer looks like a squid, but one time I had a squid lookin' calamari on my plate, and I nearly barfed. bleah.


divorced - April 2010 moved back to Ontario May 2010 and surrendered green card

PLEASE DO NOT PRIVATE MESSAGE ME OR EMAIL ME. I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT CURRENT US IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES!!!!!
