I’m renaming this article to The Diary of My Snake Bite
Snake news for the day
Warning: foot selfie posted of snake bite 🔺🐍family member suggested that I call animal control about the snake 🐍 in my yard that bit me. I spoke with animal control and they explained snake bites in East Texas. kes only insert the amount of venom they feel is protective for them at that moment mal control will search the yard if I want them to nk goodness they can not today ‘t deal with this now y said a copperhead can leave a 1 inch mark and so can our rattle snake opperhead is not deadly but a rattlesnake can be opperhead doesn’t leave neurological damage and a rattlesnake does; however, a copperhead’s worse symptoms are between day 10–30… d news
I don’t feel any neurological issues (update) my right leg is doing something weird.<br<br<br<br<br<br<br

Later…. 1AM CST USA the saga of being bit my an unknown snake.
bone pain was unrelieved by Tylenol, my choice, even though, the doctor said that I will need something stronger. I said, no thank you. Well, I’m rethinking the need for something more.
‘t breathe. My wheezing was inspiatory and expiratory. I struggled with the nebulizer and couldn’t get it fast enough. Finally, the respirations were even and unlabored. <br
RIP Robert Bowers. I don’t know what triggered this respiratory response but it awakened me gasping for air. <br

nto the hospital just for observation. Surely, the death part has passed. It’s just the pain and breathing issues now, plus intermittent fevers.
worse. It’s constant and it doesn’t come and go. My right leg must be lifted up for it to cross my left. I have to help it a little.
I hold it to a copperhead as the thought of a rattlesnake is too much to perceive. Too frightening.
the entire world in your good thoughts and prayers… <br

Since the copperhead’s response is delayed, meaning the worst is affrer 10-30 days of excruciating pain, fever and respiratory,

I was bit by a copperhead a month and a half ago. I can tell you, from experience, that it is extremely painful. I wish you luck in your recovery and feel fortunate that your encounter was not worse. 🙂

I was bitten this past summer and the type of snake was unknown. Sad face, but I suppose had I’ve seen it, I probably would have been more frightened.
I hope that you’re doing better?
The snakes 🐍 must have been abundant this past summer
