Okay, so it was a short stay and we both moved on. My body is still mine (and I am slowly reclaiming my mind), but the worm could be anywhere.

It's a belly button where not much happens these days, but where amazing things used to happen. A worm was living there on and off for a few weeks about two years ago. It didn't bring any furniture or call in advance, it just moved in, possessionless and unannounced. I was, as you can imagine, quite shocked to find it there, wriggling around like it owned the place, or was visiting an old, dear friend. But it didn't require entertaining like a guest would, and inhabited a home that would otherwise only be sheltering lint, so, after the initial shock of the discovery wore off, I really couldn't see any harm in my body's new tenant.
