I did that this morning, no luck...

I sometimes see really heavily pregnant women standing up and ppl don't offer them a seat... but then sometimes you can't tell if they are pregnant or not!

that reminds me, last year i was talking to these couple that were in the supermarket in frankfurt asking for Pork chops but obviously they didnt have it, so i decided to stop them to ask where they were from and to congratulate her with her baby, her hubby was so peed off because noone in london on busses and trains would let her have a seat, she is very slim so you could purely see she was pregnant.

Reminds me of earlier this year - I was not pregnant, but I had been pretty sick in hospital for a while and I had undergone a fairly large operation. I had not been moving much for quite a while before the operation, or directly after it and so all my muscles were wasted away.

I had to take a buss back to the hospital for a checkup and I kind of had this bent over hobble walk, trying to cradle my long incision on my chest/tummy. Add to that my severe weakness - it was almost impossible to stand on the buss as it stops and starts and goes around corners. I cant count the number of times I landed in someones lap, or flung into the bars because I just didnt have the strength to stay upright. Do you think anyone offered their seat - NO WAY. Whenever anyone got up to leave the seat was scored by an older person who seemed to ignore the fact that I could hardly stand when the buss was stationary!!

To make matters even nastier, the next time, I managed to score a seat, the last one on the buss, and this older woman who got on behind me started giving me the filthiest looks. She was only about 55 - and she seemed very strong - she certainly didnt fall all over the place with every shift of the buss like I did. Anyway, I was in no postition to offer her my seat. People really need to think before they judge.

Ok Fran, the pictures do not do the foot the justice it deserves!

But, here's lefty and righty - even my little toe and the toe next to it are swollen!:

But, I think the swelling has gone down this evening from this morning thankfully!

Seeing how red it is, I definately think you need to go to the Doctor again. Something like that could lead to blood poisoning

Were your nails polished before you were bitten? They are looking good.
I hope that the swelling is down tomorrow. Let us know.

The swelling went down a bit last night, but this morning I woke up in a lot of pain and now the swelling is on the other side of my foot! It hurts more today than yesterday so I hope it's just a case of the nasty stuff being zapped. Oh and I had to stand 9 stops on the tube this morning so I am sure the extra pressure didn't help....

If it's still bad tomorrow night, I will get an appointment for Thursday. I might take a pic of me feet to show you all tonight! hahaha

Bugs can be bad.. About a year and a half ago when my BF and Landlord were replacing our broken water heater, my BF was bitten or stung by something! He thought nothing of it, thinking it was a bee or something. After a few months he started getting these marks on his hands, feet and legs. If he got a cut it turned into this mark. He finally found out after about a year that he has lichen planus. It looks gross but isn't contagious, unfortunatly it isn't curable.. They don't know what exactly causes it but knows that trauma sometimes causes it. I hope you start to feel better soon and keep us informed!!!!

Well, the good news this morning is that it's not red anymore It still hurts but the swelling has gone down a tiny bit! I think that antibiotics have kicked in now

But, I will keep an eye on it just in case!

Ouch! Gilly It looks so inflamed as well?!

Love the polish though!
post #46 of 48
Ouchie Gilly that looks bad!

Are you definately sure it's from the bug bite?
It reminds me of the celulitis I had. I thought I had gotten bit on the ear (that's were it started) but my ear lobe swelled up so bad I though it would pop! Also the redness spread quickly to the side of my face. It was extremely painful!
post #47 of 48
Oh Gilly that looks terrible and I am glad you got it under a Dr's care. It definitely looks like cellulitis and if the swelling doesnt go down soon have them change the antibotics. .
post #48 of 48
I am glad it is getting better. Take care of it and do what the Doc. says.
