Hidden benefit

A few days ago I hurt the side of my foot in the edge of a rocker on a rocking chair. The pain kept me awake for two nights with its coming and going. There was no swelling at all and walking was no problem. I’d also had difficulty sleeping because right my shoulder and elbow were aching (too much computer probably)

No pain at all today (the part of my hand which was stung is better too). Then I remembered something about bee stings being used as treatment for arthritis. I checked to see if I could find anything about the medicinal benefits of hornet stings. Nothing really as bee stings come up on Google more. Has anyone any ideas?

A drastic cure but good to see that you survived though not for long if you carry on like this!

Caroline: I seem to be accident prone at the moment. However,I won't be keeping a supply of hornets in my first aid kit.

Hope you're feeling better Anji. But if you're not I'd suggest a visit to homeopath. They're meant to be good in France. Homeopathics has always worked for me. Even for something like a sting or bruising.

I see that vespa crabro, made from hornets, is used in homeopathy. Though I imagine your hornet gave you a lot more than a homeopathic dose!

Oh you poor thing! What a string of hurts! I can only send my healing thoughts that you feel better soon. Every part of you. :)

Sue: I'm fine now. A lot to do with old age I think.

Drue: I checked it out, it's useful to know.

Marie: Your healing thoughts are very appreciated
