Fire Ants are the Devil!

           Yes, the Devil! I've been down and out the last few days because of them. It happened so fast. I took my daughter for a walk while I flew my new drone. I stepped in the grass for literally just 2 mins and noticed something painful on my lower leg. I shrugged it off as a mosquito, but then I felt another another sting, then another and another. I looked down at my ankle and there were 10-15 ants crawling on me! 

            I swiped them off but a couple were stuck. Yes, stuck on my skin! Then I felt it. It felt like my entire ankle was on fire. The pain was intense. I pulled them off, grabbed my daughter and ran for the car. I got to my apartment and jumped in the shower, which totally didn't work. I tried ice, anti itch cream, rubbing alcohol, everything! Nothing worked! The pain was so intense. 

            It's Day 5 now and the pain had finally subsided but the itch is still there. It's fading, but not is it intense. I don't wish this on anyone. It truly sucks. Don't be like me. Watch where your stepping and be aware of your surroundings. Pay very close attention to where your kids are as well. The bites could send them to the emergency room. Pray for me y'all.
