The Cicadapocalypse of Illinois has officially begun. And an absolutely disgusting video that went viral on Facebook has confirmed it.

If anyone cares to find me, I will be indoors for the remainder of the next 3-6 weeks. After seeing this video, I wanted to scream and cry and throw up all at the same time. I love to be outdoors, but I might actually get nauseous if I run into this.

We've all heard about and are mentally preparing ourselves for the massive amount of cicadas coming to Illinois this year. If you're like me, you're not happy about it either. I'm an avid hater of any bug, reptile or aquatic creature. And now, it looks like the gnarly-looking bugs have made their debut in our state.

Cicadas Make Their Official Appearance in Carlinville, Illinois

One of my friends forwarded a video to me on Facebook just to mess with me because they know how much I hate bugs. And I'm not gonna lie, I physically gagged while watching this video. Take a deep breath, because it's nasty. This was taken in Carlinville, Illinois -- about 3 and a half hours south of us!

It's fine. I'm fine. Everything's fine. If I lock myself in my apartment for the next few weeks, I shouldn't encounter something like this, right? I can't imagine how I'd react. I'd probably start screaming like a toddler.
