By a bee, wasp etc. ? The first time I was stung I was about 8/9. My little sisters playgroup had a beach trip arranged on a day I had off school (Inset day) so I got to go too. We were on the beach and this big thing landed on my shorts. It was bigger than an bee and pure black. I screamed and ran to my mum but it wouldn't fly off. My mum pulled my shorts dwn in front of every one and the thing flew up and stung me on the finger. The second time I was about 11. We were in the park playing a cross between football and rugby. I had the ball and my sister pushed me to get me to drop the ball but I fell and landed on a wasp. I had to grab the wasp and pull it out of my arm. The third time I was 15. I was walking down the road from my school to the gym and a wasp flew towards me. I ducked out of its way but it got stung between my coat and my neck and stung me twice. My neck went really swollen and I nearly passed out. Since the last time I have had a serious fear of bees and wasps. I will run into the road to avoid them without even thinking. I HATE going out in the summer. If a wasp is near me I wrap my hands around my neck so that IF I do get stung it's not on the neck. OH thinks it's pathetic, he is allergic to sting and doesn't run away. But I can't control my reaction. I panic. When and where were you stung?
