So Sunday I got stung by a bee, and the stinger slid all the way under my skin and I couldn't get it out. Monday the skin was tight and red and itchy. Tuesday it was more swollen and hot, so I called the doctor. She didn't have any openings, so she sent me to the Urgent Care clinic, which meant a $50 copay and more than two hours waiting, even though nothing much was going on. It continues to be the case that whenever I am waiting to be taken back to undergo a medical procedure, the soft-rock playing in the waiting room will include "Hotel California".

The provider numbed my thumb, sliced it open, removed the stinger, and prescribed cephalexin. I haven't filled the prescription, since it feels so much better now; I will if it gets worse again. I wanted to ask if I could keep the disposable scalpel for the next time this happens to me, but I chickened out.

At the taking-your-vitals stage, the nurse asked for the date of my last period. Started May 15, is still going strong.

Fucking bodies.
