Two of the bites I got on Sunday may be infected. They hurt like hell. But I can't drive to the doctor because I've a cold and am stoned on Benadryl and can't drive. >:(

Good suggestion! I'm going to tough it out a couple more days. The doctor is a little over 20 miles away. Certainly doable with a taxi, but I just don't want to drop the bucks.

There could be cheaper alternatives, such as Uber or Cabify. You would have to download the app to your phone though, if you haven't already, and if those services are indeed available where you live.

If you can lay hands on any try tea tree oil. I thought it was crazy when someone suggested it for a badly infected cut on my finger, but it worked.

Or slice an aloe vera leaf and rub the juice on it . . . Or an onion . . . Garlic?

Tea tree oil is a recognised anti septic.  Very effective.  It is the oil of Melaleuca alternifolia, native to south-east Queensland and the north-east coast of New South Wales.  Yet another Australian gift to the world!   :grin:

I has me a bruised muscle, secondary to a deadly-infectious case of bronchitis, and it SUCKS.  :(

The Asmo, he's practically falling apart these days.  >:(

The Asmo is not alone, broken blood glucose control, broken kidneys, broken hemoglobin levels, broken blood pressure.  Getting old has only one thing going for it -  it's better than the alternative.

Yeah, growing old ain't for sissies.  :)

One of my neighbors is a sing maker. I saw this gem one day-

At this point, if I woke up and nothing hurt, that would be my first thought. I keep a bottle of lidocaine lotion next to my bed for those times that some hurty part wakes me up. Pain that once upon a time would have had me heading to the doctor, now only wakes me up long enough to apply some topical pain ointment. Yeah, growing old isn't for weenies.

Crap! Who knew getting a room ready for new furniture was so much work! Apparently I have not been cleaning under the bed as well as I thought. There was enough cat hair under there to make at least two more cats! And some furline puked under the bed!  :grrr:

Yuck. My current house, when we went to move in, we discovered bloody hairballs where the previous owner's bed was, in the master bedroom.  :-[

Now you've piqued my interest. Please tell more about your new furniture.
