been stung twice, big guys, lots of venom, hurt like h--ll the first time but the benydryl helped. drank about half a bottle. the second time, not too much pain but dehydrated myself drooling and frothing at the mouth. my neighbour stopped by with the electic bill just as i was at my wettest, fortunately he knew what it was and didn´freak. in fact, he got the delegado´s wife to come around to check if i wanted to go to the clinic, wanted soup, tortillas,beer, whatever. But the worst thing--the thing no one tells you is that,aside from stiff fingers or arms, there is no visible damage. IT IS NOT FAIR. get hurt skiing--everyone thinks up great lines to write on your cast, get boarded and if your bruises aren´t dramatic enough you can touch them up with green eyeshadow. Scorpion bites leave you with nothing--THERE IS NO GLORY AT ALL. UNFAIR.
