I got stung by a wasp today INSIDE My house! The kitties were looking at something in the corner, underneath a towel. I picked up the towel to show them there was nothing scary underthere, and that they were both bigger than IT. There was nothing there. Suddenly, I felt a sharp STING in my right index finger! I dropped the towel and out crawled a wasp. I covered it back up and squashed it, and he is still in the same place. I don’t know if I’m allergic to wasps or not. I’ve had really, really bad reactions to bug bites before, and unidentified angioedema of my lips and once, when I was about 12, develped stridor while playing soccer.

I have some albuterol from a recent month long bout of bronchitis so I think I’ll take that to bed with me just in case! In any case, I wrapped my hand in a freezer gel pack and an ace wrap for about 10 minutes on, 5 minutes off for a total of 3 times. It seems to have calmed things down, and now my figner mostly just itches, and I can barely see the bite anymore.
