Yes, it is time for a complainey post again

I have an ear infection. LIKE A REAL EAR 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 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.


happy Friday.

Maybe you have a bug in your ear! Oh, wouldn't that be cool! We could see you in Real Tales of the ER!

Um, lancing the eardrum in NOT a good idea. But you didn't need me to tell you that, right?

Sometimes steam will help open the ears. Take a hot shower, sit in a hot tube, watch a movie with hot men. All those should help.

Well the nursie girl said that the doctor can 'drain' the ear. I don't know what that entails, but I want to know, because I don't like this weird ear pressure stuff.

I googled it and found nothing. Of course. Just ear candling. So here I sit a hot mess (to quote one of my FAVE bloggers) with a snotty nose and ear pressure.


just shoot me now.
