    Portuguese Man-O-War In Waimanalo, Hawai'I

    I was playing in the ocean when I felt like, suddenly, over a million electric needles had wrapped around my waist, and the sharpest, hottest, most searing and rending pain I have ever felt overwhelmed me. My sister was closest to me and when she heard me scream she picked me up...

    My family was vacationing in Cancun for my brother's graduation, and we decided to go to La Isla de Muerjas. While there my brother and I went canoe-ing and we got tipped over so I just swam to shore. We got back to the hotel when I noticed a red mark across my abdomen and...

    In the Philippines

    My sisters, cousins, and I went to the D'Coral Beach Resort in Currimao. I got a lot of little jellyfish stings on my arms, hands, and legs. They weren't too painful. Just annoyingly itchy. As we were all leaving, we saw one kid who had a massive sting that covered most of this...

    Portuguese Man O' War

    When I was little we lived in Kauai for a while. I went swimming and as I was headed back a baby man o'war got wrapped around my legs. I had scars from it for a pretty long time up until I started high school.

    Holidays In Florida

      I learned about the simple creature known as the jellyfish the hard and most painful way you could. Every other summer my adoptive parents would take us down to FL to spend time with my adoptive mother's family. There would of course be the Christmas part but...

    Multiple Jellyfish, Actually (but All At Once)

    It was August, a few years ago. I was swimming at Jones Beach with my dad. Suddenly there were all these little jelly fish swimming all around us. Right after that there was all of these little stings all around my legs/crotchal area. That was loads of fun. Luckily, none of...

    Plenty of Times.

     Whenever my sister and I would go to visit my grandmother when we were little, we'd always take a trip to the beach. And at the beach, we'd frequently get stung by jellyfish. The stings were never all that bad, from what I remember. At least, they obviously weren't enough...
