Arachnophobia anyone?

Yes I now have spidey sense. I got bit by a spider. Night before last at like 3:30 am the little devil got me in the bed. It woke me up stinging and burning like a mutha. I was setting on the edge of the bed holding my arm wondering what had happened and I felt something crawl on my other arm. Well the room was pitch dark and I autiomatically started just swatting (read:flailing) at it. I jumped up and ran to the front of the house to look at it and it was a little red and you could see a little center part to it but nothing bad. I put some cortozone cream around it to stop the itching and burning (hey thats what mr computer said to do) by the time I got back to the bedroom and woke JD up (yes he was still asleep he could sleep through somebody coming in and taking me out of the bed) I couldnt find the little satan. So I have no idea what kind of spider it was. You know me I tend to underreact so I did nothing but take some benedryl the next morning because I was a little itchy all over. It was getting a little redder and was a little bigger. By after noon yestersay it was itching pretty badly and still burning and hot and very sore like bad bruise. I drew a line around it so I could tell if it was getting bigger. I showed it to Dr Morse yesterday and then today and he said it has more then doubled in size and I had to go have it looked at. So lovely! I have an appt today at 4. Wish me luck they better not take away my spidey sense or I will be upset. Hmm I wonder what redneck spidey sense would be like. *sigh* never a dull moment.

My government teacher in the 10th grade regailed us with stories of how her father got bit by a spider and did nothing. A month later they had to amputate his arm. I'm very glad you are having it looked at. Keep me posted.
