HWT: We have been speaking with Dylan Thomas this morning AKA: SPIDERMAN! Dylan has given us his story from just this past weekend!
I went to Bali for a holiday with my mate Jack for my birthday last week.
On Saturday morning, after a quiet night in, I woke to find a weird red trail heading up from my navel. I had my appendix out about 18 months prior to this and it seemed to be travelling along the scar line.
Later that day I checked it and it had moved even further up. It was as if someone had scratched me with a knife. On Sunday morning I went to the doctors, as I was a bit concerned. They told me that it was a small insect bite and they gave me some antihistamine cream to rub on the red line. Yeah… that didn’t work.
Later that morning it had broken out into blisters and it started to burn, like a searing pain coming from the line.
On Monday I saw a dermatologist and he told me that it was totally unusual! After running some tests, putting some things into my stomach and examining the line closer the doctor pulled out a spider from my skin!
The little fella had burrowed up the scar tissue under my skin!
It was about the size of a match head and was dead when it came out.
It normally takes a lot to deter me, but I do feel violated. It was a very bizarre experience just to know something like that was in my body for a couple of days.
Even though it’s been a pretty traumatic experience, it’s got it’s upsides. A new-found fame and a new nickname… SPIDERMAN!
