??? used Bug Bite! It's super-effective!

I just got home from the hospital.
This morning I was helping my dad out in the shed, shifting timber and whatnot, and it seems at some point I got bitten by an as-of-yet unknown critter. Now, I've always had a tendency to swell up spectacularly whenever bugs decide my body is an ideal storage facility for their toxins, but never have I reacted as I did today. I don't know what bit me, but it meant business.

I don't think it was a red-back (one of Australias deadliest, and most prolific arachnids) because I didn't even notice it for about 2 hours, but in the 8 or so hours since I noticed the bite, my forearm has grown a good 12cm welt around the bite. I can feel my muscles moving beneath the swelling.

So yeah, I've been prescribed antihistemines, and have scored tomorrow (at least) off work. It's not deadly, bit it sure is impressive.

    Hehe You're telling me...my boss isn't too happy that I'm not going into work today, but he was the one who sent me to hospital over it, so he can't really complain. I just wish I'd taken a photo of it when it was at its peak.

    At least you have an awesome fiancee that is willing to drive out to get you from work and take you to hospital. ;P
