Oh, I forgot, I had head lice when I was 6. That really sucked. My scalp itched soooooo much. Just glad it's over! Make sure, especially if you have long hair, to wash it and brush it often, and you're less likely to go through what I did.

I had lice when I was in 5th grade, it was nearly impossible to get rid of (I have two little sisters so we passed it back and forth)! I didn't really feel too much itchiness but missed a lot of school (plus it is a great topic to tease someone about, took several years for them to drop that one). Too bad one cannot be immunized against lice, that is one I'd like to erradicate!

I just never told anyone...People in my first grade class knew, but I think they couldn't understand it, so I was safe.

My classmates were the ones that teased me, I went to a small school so we all knew each other and not much happened to distract from such things, plus I being the only one that had it at the time it was very obvious I was the one that had them (the class was inspected weekly as I recall until I was cleared). Those were not fun times, never went to the girl that gave them to me's house again after that! I missed a lot of school during that whole thing!

Ah good, I am fine, must have been dust in the air or something, it was windy out (seems to be windy all the time here in Iowa!) maybe that had something to do with it...
