Sometimes, my day just does not go as planned.

I felt the sting and brushed my arm.

Then I looked down….scorpion

Turns out, when you get stung by a scorpion, your arm stings, then burns, the goes into this weird pins and needles things, right before it gets heavy, then goes numb.

Oddly enough, where you were stung does NOT get red and puffy like a regular bite or sting. No, instead it looks like your skin is puckering and blistering under the surface.

Also important to note: twitchy eyeballs, tongue spasms, and nausea.

On the upswing, after a scorpion sting, you get really REALLY good drugs.

How’s your day going?
