Well I just got the marks cleared up from my latest trip to the ER for IV's and think I am home free with all the bruising gone and all. I started looking less like an accident victim and more like a Southern Belle. Well that lasted all of a week maybe.
I was in the woods around my home cleaning up trees I lost during recent storms. I finished removing the last of the brush and by that time could feel something crawling all over me. I headed back to the house to shower. I hop in the shower and realize I have these little red marks on my body with brighter ring around the wound. Further inspection would lead to the discovery of a nasty hole in the center of the wounds. I was thinking these were mosquito bites. I went to bed after rubbing a little after-bite on the wounds.
I wake up the next morning with the red places now being extremely swollen, itchy, burning, and generally not pretty. I was freaked out and called to make an appointment with my doctor. He told me that the marks were actually spider bites. I can't wait until they heal. You can best believe I won't be going into the woods any time soon either. I didn't like spiders before but now I am terrified of them.
