I have an ear infection. LIKE A REAL EAR INFECTION....like my kids used to get. I am not happy nor am I feeling particularly cute.
I woke up and thought to myself "oh hell no" about going to work. I couldn't put my finger on it, but I felt LOUSY. I got up and the shift in head pressure immediately became apparent, because I realized my ear was DROWNING in it's own fluids. I immediately went from feeling lousy to MISERABLE.
I used to wonder about these medical shows with peculiar issues...like people getting a live bug in their ear and FLIPPING OUT. Well, I get it. I feel like half of my head is buried in some sort of slimy water and I can't think straight. It's horrible.H O R R I B L E. Got that HHHOOORRRRRIIIBBBBBLLLEEEE.
I am on an antibiotic and decongestants to hopefully thin out the mucus and get it moving where the HELL IT BELONGS and not in my ear. So far it's NOT WORKING. I wish he'd have just lanced the damn eardrum and let it drain. Can they do that?
I feel guilty for being such a baby--other people I know are sick too, and with worse illnesses than me.
I'm off for now. I'm going to try to not go insane from the weird pressure and sensations I am getting from this ear infection.
