- It took you months to get head lice. Beating it will require an intentional but manageable effort over the next few weeks. Don't burn yourself out, but don't give up. Just remember you are in a marathon, not a sprint. Pace yourself.
- If you found something, it doesn't mean that you have failed. In fact, it means the opposite; it proves the combing is working.
- It also means you are outrunning the lice cycle. Lice hatch and as they grow, you can get them out with your lice comb. With the combing that you are doing every few days, you will still get them out before they can lay their own eggs.
- Just because you found something, it doesn't mean that you are in any way back at square one. A few head lice does not an infestation make. You are still ahead of the game and all of the hard work you have put into this is paying off.
You do have this. Really. If you found another bug, don't think of this as a setback. Think of this as progress. Because you can always manage the head lice as long as you can manage your own emotions and expectations.
