During the weekend a fellow netrider and I with a pillion were riding from Daylesford and heading to the town of Guildford for a break. Halfway there I was stung on the neck by an insect and it hurt like hell for around one minute. It wasn’t an issue as I’ve been stung many times before. We reached the good town of Guildford and whilst inside the general store my head started to get itchy then my arms and chest became itchy. My skin came up with a rash all over and I started to perspire. My vision went haywire with everything becoming extremely bright and white like a camera flash that was always on. I staggered outside and eventually the body began to completely shutdown and anxiety had set in. I started to collapse. No one knew what was happening to me and the people I was with became frightened and were unable to help. The lady from the store and a customer at the store that was an off duty nurse became very concerned and lent a helping hand. Another customer that lived in Castlemaine happened to have some antihistamines and offered them to me. I took one and pretty soon things became better. An hour later I had recovered a fair bit and was able to ride again. These three ladies saved me and I thank them. On the advice from the nurse I visited my doctor when I got home and received two injections. One in the arm and one in the butt and was also given some medication. I don’t know what type of insect stung me. I have never had a reaction to a sting and I do not know if I will ever have another one but from this point on I will always carry a packet of antihistamines. An EPIPEN would most likely be better.
