There are spiders crawling around your bed with you
It seems people figure any bite or sore with an unknown origin is automatically a spider bite and requires a trip to the local emergency room. I wish I had a nickel for every person who showed me a bite and said "I think it's a spider bite". I'd be a rich woman.
Don't even try to challenge that maybe this isn't a spider bite. The patient is always confident that this is indeed a spider bite and you are foolish to think otherwise. Their auntie told them so.
Out of the thousands of different kinds of spiders in the world, very few would bite humans, and even fewer of them are harmful. They are just trying to get through their day as a spider. Thinking about having to spin that damn web, whether any juicy insects will get caught today..
Have you ever heard that you are never more than 6 feet away from a spider? There is one on the other side of your husband right now and they are sizing you up for dinner right now....
