so I was up till 4:30 last night because my female gecko has this horrible parasite called crypto. So I was up all night making her comfortable. Then I had to Clorox everything that was in my big tank... that took two hours. Now come to find out that this stuff is highly contagious and fatal in geckos. So I am probably gong to lose both of my babies... I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO unhappy right now. On top of all that this stuff can be spread to humans!! In some cases it can be fatal to humans as well!!!! JESUS!!!!!!! So now I have to go home and find someway to quarantine my other gecko from everyone else in the world. This is biting arse. Besides the fact that I am so tired I can stand up... my geckos are dying... did I mention I am allergic to Clorox??? So now I have a huge chemical burn up my right arm.......

screw it....
;(

Sorry, ravein, that sounds like a crappy night you had. sad.gif I hope at least the other gecko (and you) remains crypto-free, and I hope the chemical burn heals up soon. Get some sleep when you find a chance, and take care of yourself.

laugh.gif I'm fine... I worked in a hospital mental ward for a time. I am pretty good at quarantine and sterilization smile.gif Either way I am going to my doc today to get checked out. My stomach was rumbling yesterday but I think it was stress and the horrible Asian food I had for lunch. I feel tons better today though.. my female gecko is not any better but my male is not showing any ill signs so that is good news so far. I actually slept last night so I don't feel like I am on the verge of tears today.
Thanks for letting me vent yesterday. I was just about at the point of really losing it at work.

Yay!! biggrin.gif I'm so glad you're feeling better today, rave, and I'll keep my fingers crossed for *both* of your geckos!! Hopefully the male at least remains fully healthy, and here's to hoping your femelle actually gets better and recovers, if that's at all possible. Good luck at the doctor's and with the geckos, and take care of yourself. smile.gif
