Parasite Fast 2022

UPDATE: Yes, of course I kept going! This photo explains why.

I suppose one could have easily predicted it. I’m still going forward with the parasite fast, and I’m now on Day 32. This photo will explain why.

Now, I don’t know why I didn’t think of doing this before, but on Day 30, it finally occurred to me that at some point in the future, I might look back fondly at this moment in time and reminisce about those days BC (Before Clean). I’ll tell folks about it, and they’ll say, “Worm?? Show us proof!”

So, that’s what I’ve done! Fortunately, if it can be called fortunate, after days and days of worm-filled releases, and then days of their apparent “disappearance,” one lone but long worm showed up, and I resolved to preserve it! I searched online, discovered that 70-80% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) would work, so I headed out to get some more appropriately-sized bottles to perform my collection. I found a video online about how to preserve “soft” specimens like bugs and larvae. It explained that a few seconds of “blanching” in nearly boiling water would be necessary in order to “fix” the internal organs and prevent deterioration while immersed in the alcohol. I’ll spare you any more details, but here’s the final result:

CONCLUSION: So, even though I was on Day 30, as long as vermin like “Wendell” here were still in my body, I need to keep going until I am free and clear with some sort of proof (yes, proof of a negative) that there are no others lurking in the tissues, tunnels, crannies and crevices of my biome!
