A housewife is too scared to sleep in her own bedroom because she ended up in intensive care after she was bit by a false widow spider.
Alison Blackburn, 49, from Kent, said that she has been sleeping on her sofa because she is too scared to go back to her room where England's most venous spider bit her, according to Daily Mail.
The incident took place during the early hours of January 10. She woke up suddenly, and she had a sharp pain in her stomach.
According to Metro, Blackburn was taken to the hospital after Gary Pelatt, her boyfriend, noticed that something was wrong with her foot.
According to Daily Star, along with the swelling of her foot, a rash developed, and her foot had to be drained of the poison.
Blackburn said that she had to get an operation done to get all of the poison out. She also said that she is going to get her home fumigated, because she wants to get rid of the spider. She went on to say that she is still in shock, and that the spider is still around there somewhere.
