My worst stinging experience was when I was about 12. I had my bee suit and all on and I was doing great. One little problem, I had let the duck tape on my pants ankle come loose and my socks were showing. BAM BAM, both ankles at the same time. My pain scale is very different now from then, but at the time all I could do was run to the house. It set me back months, in terms of psyche (sp), but that was the Worst. Now all of my stings up until now have been in "sensitive areas", such as ankles, pinkie finger, eyebrow and maybe another or two, but the recent stings I have had on my lower, outside forearm have been "itching" at worst. A fire ant sting is much worse to me now.
