That's why I have not blogged!
I was bitten by a (?) spider on my hairline above my forehead, twice...about 10 days ago.
Well, at least that is what some Moms have told me. I looked on line to see pictures of bites, but they were so HORRIBLE that I could not look beyond the first page.
I've been taking ALL the stuff, you know...tons of Vitamin C. activated charcoal. olive leaf, aloe vera, extra B vitamins, gallons of water, cod liver oil, castor oil packs...and for the last 3 day Burdock in capsules. It all has been--and still is--getting better, but not as quickly as I would like. There were a couple of days that I felt as though I had a fever, so I did the 'hoe-downs' from t-tapp, to get my lymph activated. Doing the extra hoe-downs made me feel a whole lot better.
Now I have a sort of scab in the middle of the pea-size red bumps...and it itches a little now, but just every now and then. I have put comfrey, castor oil, Vitamin E, coconut oil, and iodine, one at a time, a couple of times a day.
My right cheek, by the ear, was swollen a little, and also the nodes under my jaw; a few days ago it swelled under my eye, but that lasted a few hours. All the swelling is going away and is hardly visible.
Those tiny creatures pack a lot of toxins! One of my friends said that this is the time of year that the spiders hatch. And my bites looked just like those she had seen. She is a nurse and knows this kind of stuff.
All the things that I'm taking are doing many good things for the rest of me. I suppose that I should take a Tbs of castor oil too. Like Granny Clampett and many Grannies used to give to their little ones in the Spring. Good-for-yah-kinda-stuff.
If any of you has a spider poison/preventer/discourager substance that is effective, please let me know. Tonight we are spraying Home Defense under the bed along the baseboard...which is where I think they may have been nesting. Although vacuuming should have gotten all of them.
I DO HATE SPIDERS, and all those things that devour. I was going to show you a picture of any spider, but changed my mind after I saw them. Click there if you want to know. (Shudder, shudder, shudder!!)
I'll leave you with this:
"And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts." Mal 3:11
"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." Rev 4:11
