Another buzzy attack, this time, ending up in A&E. Poor me!



I am smiling to make this more palatable for everyone. I look like the elephant woman. I've been wearing shades all day so as not to frighten everyone! This time I was stung at 7am, at my folks house this time, feeling like MY HEAD WAS ON FIRE - a pleasant sensation which has slowly been working its way down my forehead, and has now engulfed the upper left side of my face. I look like some botox nightmare! 

A trip to A&E wasn't what I had planned for today!

I am now officially at war with all things that go buzz buzz and fly around.

  2. Thank you, trying not to succumb to self pity but resemble the beast from beauty and the beast :-( Not feeling very happy.

  3. Virtual hugs (and antihistamines!) coming your way - hope you feel better soon and it doesn't put the brakes on enjoying your beautiful garden too much.

  4. I forced myself to go in the garden today. ( Back at home now) And, I stopped myself running to Pete to come to my rescue, when a hornet got trapped in the window. I calmly opened it, and let him or her out. I am trying to empathise with the buzzy things and bring some calm to my traumatised mind!

  7. If I ever posted the photo I took of my daughter when she was stung on the lip by a wasp, people would run screaming from their computers...she looked like a freaky platypus...top lip swollen up to at least 4 times its normal size. Amazing how powerful those stings are, from such a tiny creature, and how powerful our bodies' response! Hope you're feeling better soon. Time to spray that nest with insecticide...hate to be the one to say it. I respect nature until it endangers my children or me...so, bears are welcome to wander the woods around our house but once they traipse into the yard, I call my neighbour, the hunter. Sounds brutal, I know...but hey, I'm Canadian! :)

  8. Hey mama knitty. I hear ya. This occasion I was at my parents, sleeping, with a window open slightly cos it's been so hot. I don't even know where any nests actually are at my place.... since there are a number of sheds, trees, bushes, all kinds of wildly overgrown nooks and crannies. It's such a beautiful garden but next summer we will seriously have to tame this garden and root out all these hidey holes... Bears? Yikes, you're braver than I am !

  9. Poor you indeed! I won't suggest drawing with black marker to monitor the swelling as per my husband's doing when I was got by one of the nasty stingy things.... Hope it heals soon x Citronella candles for the garden? I don't actually know if they work?
