Otitis media

That’s an ear infection, to those who don’t read doctor-speak.

And I have one in a big way.  Including a perforated eardrum.  These damn fluid build-ups . . . .

I guess I understand now why the pain of Friday and Saturday wasn’t as great yesterday, since the middle ear infection had found a way to drain.   But today the pain is back, sort of like someone is driving a spike into the side of my skull. Chewing is especially painful.  Sleeping seems to help, and that I shall do.

So I’m on antibiotics and eardrops.  I’m hoping the pain will dissipate son, since it’s a pretty discomforting feeling.

Curse allergies.  Curse putting off the doctor visit.  And curse getting older.

Oh wait . . . now I consider the alternatives . . . .
