(VIDEO) Post-Collapse You’re Bitten by a Black Widow Spider. Now What?!

black widow

A black widow bite is notoriously painful, and can result in fevers, nausea, sweating, cramps, and even death. With that in mind, it would be conducive to your good health to ensure that you are never bitten in the first place. But stuff happens.

If you are bitten, what will be your next move? Watch the video below to find out.

The good news is not many people die of black widow bites. In fact, the only people likely to die are the very young or the very old, or people who were knocking on death's door to begin with.

That doesn't make being bitten any more pleasant, but it should come as a relief to know that if you can successfully manage the victim's pain with cooling wraps, pain medication, and keep them well-hydrated, there is very little reason to expect to have to dig a grave anytime soon.

    Lol no. Almost nobody dies from it. I don’t know where you got that but it’s not even close to accurate.

    Eat the spider to show my dominance of it and it’s kind. In turn the spiders make me their king and fashion for me my own 4 extra spider legs from their strong supple spider silks and chitin. I am then hunted as a monster, with 4 useless but gross looking spider web legs
