I feel for you. I think I would have the heebee jeebees all the time. Every little itch would worry me non stop. Aside form psychological harm to you, I would not overly worry. Bed bugs are not fatal.
If you can't fine a friend to hang with for the day then board the kitty and go to a movie or two or twelve. Personally, I'd see if I can go visit grandma for a few days or something. Then I would buy some bug killer from Home Depot (Home Defense 6 or 12 month brand is good). Then I would routinely spray in the back of the bed and the mattress seams, etc.
