Bee Sting

with 3 comments

     Yesterday I was putting my nephew to bed as my sis has late classes on Thursdays.   I got up off the couch as usual to where eitan’s room was.  Somewhere while I was putting on my slippers and heading down the room; I felt this thing hurt my toe and I looked down. There sat a bee on my big toe.
     Not thinking too much, I flung my slippers off to try and get if off me.  It partly worked the bee went flying but it was too late I was stung. 
     Now an anaphalactic shock takes about 2 min and since I can’t remember a time when I’ve been stung before I became really nervous.  I got my epipen ready and then found some tweezers to get the stinger out.  It hurt soooooo much!!! 
     I tried calling my sis but she didn’t pick up the phone. Then I called my mom just in case something happened so then she’d know.  Finally my sis came home and I put some polysporin and ice on it.  My big toe definetely got swollen but happily my breathing wasn’t affected.  Ahhh scary!!!  Well at least I know that I’m not allergic to bee stings.  It’s fantastic given the chances of what I’m allergic too.
