What did you say?
I can’t hear. My left ear is so stopped up. I am guessing it is because of the Q-tips I have been using to hopefully clean out my ears. Bad decision. How so, you ask? I researched a little, and I learned that cotton swabs aren’t for cleaning out your ears, because they can actually push the earwax farther into your ear, causing an ear infection.
Well, that explains a lot. I wish people would not have taught me to clean my ears out with cotton swabs, you know?
If you currently feel like you’re life is super complicated right now, take a step into my current state of frustration:
White noise is all you can hear out of your left ear. You have only your right ear to depend on. When your left ear starts to clear up, ignore it, and avoid getting your hopes up because it isn’t for good. Your ear will feel the pressure again. You’re going to get headaches, and you’re not going to really be able to listen to more than one thing at once. You’re going to feel dizzy and lightheaded, and everything you want to say probably isn’t going to come out right, so don’t say anything relating to serious matters or that you will later regret. Scrabble is a good hobby to get into because it will help stimulate your brain and keep you busy during this time that you feel like crabs.
Feel my pain now? It’s hard trying to figure out what people are saying when they aren’t on my right side, to break up fights between my siblings and/or to just get them to listen and quit doing what they are doing in general. It’s as if this gives them a free ride to do whatever they want.
I just want to watch TV if I am going to be in the living room. I have a big enough headache already1; I don’t need the kids fighting and/or tattling on each other. If I have to listen to them, I have to focus on that. I can’t multitask on the hearing right now, and I feel like no one understands what I feel like right now.
I despise my left ear right now. I am so annoyed with it, and I have been for quite a long time.
