Meghan Linsey of Louisiana of the “The Voice” fame was recently in the news after a long time!

Fan worried where Meghan has vanished when she revealed the reason with the following picture:

This is what happened: “I woke up to a stinging sensation on my face. I looked and in my right hand was a dead spider. Somehow while I was sleeping, a spider had bit me and I had killed it. This scenario is literally on the top of my nightmare list. The stinging was awful and I knew it had to be poisonous. I put the spider in a bag and headed to urgent care.”


This whole scar on my face thing is oddly empowering #scarface #nomakeup #slayallday😜

Over the next few days Meghan’s body went through a lot! She suffered muscle spasms, a rash broke out all over her body, and the skin around the original bite turned black as the tissue in the area died. Part of her treatment involved being in a hyperbaric chamber with a higher level of oxygen than normal, to help the skin regenerate.

Doctors at the ER confirmed that she’d been bitten by a brown recluse spider, one of the two most venomous spiders in the United States. (The other is the black widow, more famous thanks to Marvel Comics and Scarlett Johansson!)

Luckily, within two weeks, Meghan had already recovered and, for the most part, her scar is was beginning to fade.

Now I’m scared of spiders even more than ever!
