Darn Spiders

My son, who is now 29, still screams like a girl when he encounters a spider.  For as long as I can remember, though, he would not let me "dispose" of the critter.  I had to take it outside.  Well, I've turned over a new leaf, and if a spider comes into my territory, it gets stepped on.  Unfortunately, the other night, one apparently crawled into my warm cozy bed with me and had a feast.  I have three bites, two of which are infected.  One bit is on the tip of my right pinkie and the red stripe runs to my wrist.
Soooo, I went to the doctor today.

This is one of her exam rooms.

Isn't it amazing?  I think my blood pressure always registers low when I am in this room.

Her other room is an African Savannah.  A high school student painted the rooms in 2003, I believe.  I think it was his senior project.

So anyhow, I'm on antibiotics and in alot of pain and just pooped out.  Even so, I did manage to get my carrots pickled, and I will write about that tomorrow.

That is not good....I hate bugs of all kinds and little creatures. Although I will say, living in Amerika Samoa I had to fend for myself and did quite well...and if I screamed like a girl...no one was around to hear me....HA!!

ICK!! Living in the boonies of New Hampshire we are plagued with spiders and I HATE it!! When we first moved here I got these weird marks on my legs that iched like nothing I'd experienced before, I was miserable! That weekend when I went to change the sheets there I found this HUGE spider as I pulled back the sheets!! I was freaked out!! Took a while before I could really sleep again...one of the drawbacks of the boonies.

Glad you got some meds and I hope it clears up very, very soon! LOVE the doc's office!
