Oh the effin pain!!!!!!

So, today I came home from gym.  I had my towel draped over my shoulder.  I was fumbling with my bags while I was getting my sneakers off in our hallway.  When I bend over I feel a sharp pain in the back of my arm.  I get up and take towel off and see a yellow jacket clinging on to it.  I RUN inside and close the door so the bee doesn't get in the house.  Hubs must have thought I was being chased because I immediately drop all my  bags and yell at him...

Me: "I THINK I GOT STUNG BY A BEE.  LOOK LOOK IS THERE A STING!!!!"

Hubs: "Yeah, something stung you."

Me: "GOOGLE ABOUT BEE STINGS... OH MY GOD THIS HURTS THIS HURTS SO BAD."

At this point, the PAIN FROM HELL sets in.  Now this is my first time getting stung by a bee so I am also freaking out the What If I am Allergic?!?!?!?!  Hubs looks up the info and starts asking me if I am breaking out in hives, can I breathe OK, am I dizzy, etc....  At the point, I was able to say yes I can breathe OK, no hives and I think I am just dizzy from the EFFIN PAIN FROM HELL WHY ON EARTH DOES THIS HURT SO MUCH I JUST WANT TO CRY.

Seriously, worst pain ever.

So, we washed the wound and realized there was no stinger.  The type of bee was a yellow jacket that stung me. I took Motrin right away and slapped an ice pack on the sting so fast so I can go numb quickly.

Here we are about 45 minutes after the incident and it is my pleasure to tell you that I am alive and well.  No running to the ER for an epi shot.  No major swelling besides in the area of the sting.

This shit still hurts so I am going to go for another round of ice pack for 20 minutes.

So, this post is a big F U to yellow jackets... who AFTER THE HUBS TOOK A SHOE TO IT AND SMASHED IT, it was STILL ALIVE and flew away when hubs put it out the window.

WTF is up with yellow jackets and the not dying after being smooshed by a freaking sneaker??!?!?!

Also, I think I won't be leaving my apt for the rest of the day today in case that yellow jacket is just WAITING for me to come out.

F U YELLOW JACKET!

Yellow Jacket road rage. Did you cut him off or something?

FUCK BEES.

This is exactly why I run in the opposite direction when I see one, regardless of type. Except bumble. Bumbles are cool.

I had one of those assholes in my HAIR once. I heard buzzing by my ear and when I moved my hair back, boom, stung. I feel for you.
