As if my day weren't bad enough... - Elf M. Sternberg
As if my day weren't bad enough...
I got stung by a yellowjacket this evening, on my foot just below the ankle. I stepped outside barefoot and must have stepped on him in a way that he couldn't quite reach the underside, so when I stepped he got up and decided to fight back. Bouncing Buddha but that hurts. Throbbing with every heartbeat, an excrutiating pain. Not a good or fun pain at all, spreading through my left foot.

Calamine and ice are helping, but ouch... So far, no sign of anaphylactic shock. I was never prone to it anyway.

Current Mood: stressed stressed

Yup, dying of anaphylactic sock is a bugger. I'm allergic to beestings myself - and have to deal with bee nests as part of my job

For future reference, try dabbing it with vinegar. and make sure the stinger is out.
