Two Years After Brown Recluse Spider Bite
It’s been a long time, more than a year, since I posted on this blog. I apologize to everybody for that, especially those who have been my regular readers. I do have a pretty good excuse though, which is being incapacitated for more than a year. In fact I could have died as several people I know of who suffered brown recluse spider bite did die because of it.
Further below I will post a video of what my spider bite wound looked like fairly recently. A few posts below this post you can watch a video of my spider bite wound after 3 months.
What I really would like to know from everybody reading this article or post is, if you think I should write a book about the brown recluse spider bite and what I went through as well as what I have learned about these spiders and their bites and how powerless doctors generally are in trying to help the brown recluse spider bite victims. Write your comments about what you think I should do. Should I write the book or not?
From what I have learned through researching the success of books on similar subjects, I’m not going to make any money from that kind of book. Most likely nobody will buy it. Would you buy my book about the spider bite and everything I learned connected with such a bite?
If many of you will comment that I should write such a book it may persuade me to write it as was my intention before doing my research into a possible demand for it without getting your opinion.
I do have some horrible pictures of the spider bite wound which would be published in the book too. I’m reluctant to post them here or anywhere else in case I do write and publish the book.
Have a look at two videos below showing what the spider bite wound looks like now and what it looked like 7 months after the bite:

My foot with Brown Recluse Spider Bite Wound after 7 Months:
I think you can get a taste of how horrible the bite was and how it was affecting my ability to do anything, let alone doing something creative like writing blog posts. The first year after the bite I couldn’t walk without crutches and the first fourteen months I couldn’t walk without a medical boot. It was only after 14 months since the spider bite that I could barely walk without a medical boot. I was then able to squeeze my bitten foot into a wide type of a running shoe. When I did that the foot would swell and kind of overflow out of the edges of the running shoe. I couldn’t remove the shoe, for fear of not being able to put it back on during the day later, until getting home at night and then my foot would have a ridiculous shape after getting it out of the shoe which wouldn’t go away until I got up after a night’s sleep.
Go to the comments section now and let me know what you think about it and if I should write a book about the brown recluse spider bite I suffered and everything that I learned about it and from it.
