First bee stings of my life. Dr said I got a lot of venom. Burning and stabbing pain. And I have a really high pain tolerance level. I'll be fine.
Of course you do. You are a frequent reader of HF and have not needed painkillers for that, so there you go.
People can be allergic to bees despite not reacting to a sting or two earlier in life. Apparently, most humans are born with a small amount of the antitoxin which protects people from bee stings, so you can get stung once or twice and be OK. The difference is that people who are not allergic to bees continue to produce that antitoxin, while people who ARE allergic do not.
At least that's what I have been told.
Long day, up early to get son to hockey school, ran around getting more paperwork concerning the accident with my daughter's car, then got a call around 7pm telling me it's being totaled. I have not seen the $$$ yet, but I guarantee I will be losing money because it was an older car that was immaculate and had really low mileage.
All this doggie talk is kinda making me sad. I just realized today that I'm having a hard time keeping up with my mini schnauzer. The baby has sort of put herself in the middle of the routine I had with the pup, and I'm really sad about it. He only had two really short walks today, maybe 5 minutes a piece, one morning and one night. I have been trying to give him more attention cuz I know he feels pushed aside by the baby, so I try to make more of an effort to give him belly rubs and such. Part of the reason I have trouble getting him outside is that I get home at 630, and I don't like walking after the sun goes down cuz the bugs are so bad where I live.
I'm just gonna post it here cuz I think I will have an easier time sticking to it, but I want to make more time for my little guy, just like I did before. As for now, well he's snuggling in bed with mom
I got stung by a bee on the lip once because I had apple juice on it. My lip puffed up immediately, but I bit that bees head straight off (I was like 9), so brutal and metal!!
Speaking of metal, I saw Car Bomb and Gojira tonight in Worcester. It was great because it was at the Palladium Upstairs, so there was maybe 150 people there max, and all the bands were super friendly and into the crowd. Some of the people from Gojira were crowd surfing multiple times.
Not a bee, but I got stung in the side of the head right above my ear once as a kid by a yellow jacket. Yellow jackets nest in the ground, and my dad was doing landscaping in the back yard. My brothers and I (we were like 9/10/11) were having dirt clod fights and I guess I disturbed a yellow jacket. I got stung in the head, and I went full-on berserker mode on my brothers thinking one of them beaned me with a rock. My mom looked and saw the entry hole for the stinger, so I calmed down.
Do you get migraines very often? If so, you should check out imitrex or fiorinol. Both would probably be far more helpful than vikes.
I have Imitrex in my desk that I am too scared to take. I've had it twice and both times thought I was dying a slow horrible death. Magically 3 hours later I felt 100% perfect, but I'm not sure if it was worth the side effects.
I have Fioricet (sp?) at home though, which works about the same but doesn't give me tunnel vision and I can still feel my limbs, all 5 of them.
I took the vicodin with the hopes it would just knock me out. I'm a lightweight...it worked.
