Journaling: I was a bridesmaid in my friend Jen's wedding. We met when we worked together at AAA.
On the day of the wedding I noticed that my arm was feeling weird and starting to swell. At one point it felt as if my circulation was being cut off. I had decided to just ignore it but Jen's mom insisted I go get it looked at and she drove me to urgent care. Seems I was having an allergic reaction to a spider bite. I got some medicine and was able to complete my duties as a bridesmaid.
I ended up knowing one of the groomsmen. Steve is one of Rob's best friends. Steve and I went to high school together and even dated for a couple of weeks.
