Maybe a Wolf Spider? Accidentally posted it's belly first... I was bit by this spider and it's a pretty nasty bite. Not a brown recluse or black widow from what I can tell...

I was bit by this spider and posted the bite as well.
Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Ghost Spider (Anypheanidae) in the genus Anyphaena. Like most spiders they have venom but are not considered to be of medical significance, everyone’s immune system is different though … so of course if you experience any symptoms that give you cause for concern see a doctor. I hope you have quick recovery without any complications. Compare to A. aperta: https://bugguide.net/node/view/526733
Thank you again ItsyBitsy! My mom and friend were concerned about my bite. I knew to watch for streaks, heat and continued swelling. I’m glad I got my meds in me when I did! My immune system may not have handled it otherwise. Can still see the bit, most swelling has gone down, no red and just feels like a bruise. May put it in with Harley and let them go at it. Ha! Naw, I’ve become fond of Harley. lol
