Very touching, Pat. I wish I had paid attention to the lesser-known battles of the Civil War when I learned them in grade school and high school. But as I become aware of this battle because of you, Pat, this makes me want to learn more - which is one effect of any good poem should do. Thank you for this and for sharing your work.

Thanks Vicki Olson for explaining the entire . process. I hope everyone who is treated for jiggers, & who have these "holes" also receive closed toe shoes. I am in awe of people who who go into the villages and help the people get treated. I also am humbled by the villagers who are afflicted by these jigger infestations. I realize they struggle with the stigma of what they think jiggers mean. The people who have been treated & will be treated, they are brave to come forward and seek help. Bless them all!

What about using medicinal maggots to eat/remove the dead skin that is left after the jiggers have been removed - for patients who have a lot of dead skin on their feet? The maggots would eat all dead flesh leaving room for new skin to grow.

There is a lot of truth to this article. Why do we waste our time on people we are only somewhat excited about spending time with? 
There’s a grey area in dating many people get hung up on — a grey area where feelings are ambiguous or one person has stronger feelings than the other.

Regular white vinegar is unhealthy for you and helps to promote an acidic state in the body. Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother, however, is very good for you in creating a healthy alkaline state in the body. Just a tbspn of ACV with 8 oz will help create an alkaline & healthy body & decrease fatigue.

A good introduction by Cynthia Stewart, to the Tao, using analogy. And metaphor. If you find it interesting, please share

Jim, in cases like this in which there are multiple scales and dead skin on top of jiggers to use serrated knives/blades to get rid of quantities of the scales and dead skin. I understand that bleeding will be a side effect of this approach. But if you raise the foot up and apply the antiseptic you use, this will cut down on the bleeding immensely. You do not film hardly any follow-ups so I do not know how you get rid of the scales and dead skin to get at the jiggers underneath and let new szkin grow. If you could let us know, then I won't think of ways to do it! 😊 It is mainly these extreme cases (like the person in this video) I worry about.
I know you say it is painful for water to touch these bad cases, yet I also have seen you soak the feet and scrub the jiggered feet to loosen the scales & put lotion on the scales to soften them. Is it possible to do the same with these extreme cases? Is it not better to have this pain and to have guaranteed relief from jiggers than to deal with jiggers for many more nights? I know my nerve pain due to multiple sclerosis is not the same as jigger pain. However, I will be struggling with it for the rest of my life. So, in some way I can relate. I would prefer short-term pain to pain for an unknown period of time.

Thank you Jim, the volunteers, and all the people behind the scenes. You are doing such a valuable job for lovely people and no one else wants to do this work. I am a researcher by trade. I have 2 masters degrees and almost finished my PhD in Counseling Psychology but had to withdraw due to multiple sclerosis (M.S.) and severe nerve pain in my face. I am published and was the assistant director of a research center. If you need help with research or writing letters or something like that, let me know. I currently am a writer. But the project can't be too big because I don't operate well in the heat of the summer due to my M.S.
Thanks, Monique

I'm curious what is the correlation between people with multiple "holes" in the skin as a result of jigger and their eggs removal and reinfestation rate due to jiggers entering previous patients via "holes" that are exposed due to previous treatment. In other words, do you get many reinfestation due to jiggers entering via open holes exposed due to previous jigger treatments glaring

Not only are they removing the jiggers from the skin, at the same time they are cleaning out the houses and throwing out the old jigger infested bedding and replacing it with new mattresses and blankets...throwing out any old rags and clothing that is jigger infested, if it can't be repaired and cleaned and the jiggers killed, and replacing it with new, so reinfestation like what you describe does not happen.   Plus treatments are used to see that no new jiggers dig into the skin.

You have one of the most intense & moving voices I have heard. I bet with additional training you could be on par with Celine Dion. Please continue to foster this amazing gift you have. So far, your voice shines. I believe your voice could be blazing!

Piper Bayard and Jay Holmes are terrific writers of both the serious and the absurd. This time it is a review of "The Interview" with James Franco and Seth Rogen. I want to see the film simply due to all the attention it has gotten. And this post makes even a better argument to see it. Check out both the post then view this film.
By Piper Bayard & Jay Holmes The Interview is a slapstick comedy about an assassination attempt against North Korean despot Kim Jong Un. Given the absurd nature of the Kim family dynasty, any p...

I need help. Does anyone take shots for their MS? Do you take Copaxone? I am back on it again after being on Avonex. On Avonex, I would be sick for a day or 2 with flu-like symptoms. I hardly had any good days, so I wanted to change. On the Copaxone, I get huge hard welts for 4-5 days each time I take a shot. I stopped taking them. I tried heating shot area before hand, and ice-packing afterwards. The shot area was also VERY itchy - I used hydrocortozone. Does anyone have any tips to help me? Please?

I had the same symptoms. Turned out that I had set the auto-injector too shallow. I set it deeper and I haven't had similar problems since.
