I cross my heart, stick a needle in my eye, promise, this is my last post in where I whine about some physical ailment. At least for this week. (And if you know me and my hatred for needles, you'll know that that is one serious promise.)
Seems I got bit by some sort of bug. Mostly likely a mosquito or flea. Nothing exciting like a spider or wolverine.
But, I seem to swell up more than "normal". A simple bug bite for me, makes my skin react quite severely. A bee sting is horrible. When people ask "Are you allergic to bee stings?" I never know quite how to answer. Yes, I swell up horribly and itch like a dog with mange. No, I don't have problems breathing or with blurry vision. I'm just a wuss when it comes to bug bites.
I don't know if you can tell, in this picture (Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of your own arm? Your right arm? It's harder than you think.) but all that red is rock hard and warm. It itches like crazy. Right in the middle, there's where the nasty little bug bit me.
No, it's not blood poisoning, there's nothing extra funky going on. This is how I react with every. single. bug. bite.
So annoying. And, if I'm not careful and scratch it like I want to, it will leave a scar.
I guess, when you're as sweet as I am, all the bugs just want a taste. ( :
