The thought of a spider crawling on your face while you sleep is enough to give anyone nightmares, but for Meghan Linsey it was a painful reality.
According to Taste of Country, the former Steel Magnolia singer and The Voice contestant recently woke up to a stinging pain on her face and dead spider in her hand. During the following days, she suffered from facial swelling, nerve pain, muscle spasms, and a full body rash.
Even more terrifying is that the spider that bit her was confirmed to be a brown recluse, one of the most poisonous spiders in the United States.
While she isn’t completely healed yet, she has stated that she’s on medication that is easing the pain and that she will not need any plastic surgery to remove the scar.
While she did post photos of her injured face along with the dead spider on Instagram, it may be too graphic for some. If you really want to view the photo, you can check it out right here.
