***Alright, folks, you know the rules. Join us all in humiliating the crap out of yourself every Thursday by sharing some completely tasteless, wholly unclassy, “how many readers can I estrange THIS week??” TMI story about your life. Or hell, about someone else’s!
Anyone wonder where I have been this week? (Thank you to those who sent emails and tweets and text messages, I will get back to you soon, I promise) Feel free to read ahead if you want the gory details.
Last Thursday I was sitting at my computer *shocker* and I felt myself get bit. ON.MY.ASS.
So I jump up and rip my clothes off (and I was fast too!) and start swatting at my butt to get the spider or what I assumed was a spider away from me.
I wasn’t able to find the perpetrator, so I went to the bathroom to inspect my ass the wound. There wasn’t anything that I could see and it didn’t really hurt anymore. Just a little left over sting. So I didn’t think too much else about it and went back to my internet addiction computer.
Friday I woke up and there was a sore. It hurt, but not real bad, so I treated it with some peroxide and went about my day.
It progressively got worse to the point where I couldn’t sit and because it was so close to my tailbone and the nerves that surround your tailbone, even standing was painful.
Monday morning I went to the Urgent Care and they said that it was pretty bad and that they had to clean it out. *GAG*
After 3 shots in my butt and a LOT of cursing, they got me all cleaned up and said that the spider bite had turned into a Staph Infection. And the doctor did point out that there could have been no spider. But DUDE, there was so a spider. So, that’s my story.
He also said that I was lucky because it was REALLY bad and that if I had waited any longer it would have gone into my blood and apparently a Staph Infection can be fatal if left untreated.
So I go home and a few hours later, what fun should happen? Oh… I suddenly had a fever. A 103.3 fever!
Long story short (too late) I end up at the ER with WORTHLESS dr’s and sent home with MORE antibiotics. I am on enough that I shouldn’t be able to catch anything for a least a year. Hopefully I should be better soon.
Not the most exciting blog, sorry. But now you know what happened.
It was a pain in my ass. Bada bum!
