been home sick all week with the most painful ear infection i can ever remember. i have suffered from ear infections before (i swear im cursed); i remember one time when i was little i had one and we were flying home to dallas from israel (or vise versa, it happened so often i get confused) and if you have ever experienced an ear infection it’s worse times 1,000,000 when flying, the pressure was unbearable and i was like 8; i just remember my mom had to sit with me on the back row while i screamed and cried in pain.
this is just as bad, if not worse. it began with a terrible sore throat sunday and by the evening my ear was throbbing and it felt like it was going to explode. dekel just layed in bed with my while i cried. i used some ear drops and popped some advil and suprisingly the pain subsided and i was able to sleep for a few hours, till i woke up in the middle of the night with the unbearable pain again. monday morning i went to the dr and he just perscribed me some antibiotics (pills) to take, but i knew i needed more treatment than that. i was weak from not eating now for like 2 days and bf took me to see an ear specialist who had to drain my ear (ew, i know). this was so painful, but immediatly after the fact the pressure was less. i just need to get some sleep. it’s now tuesday evening and i can barely hear, the pain has moved from my ear to my neck and jaw, but at least its not throbbing anymore. anything to keep it from throbbing. i had to shower, but had to keep my ear dry. you should have seen it, i used a cotton ball, plastic sandwich bag and hair clip to keep my poor little ear dry while i showered. i am feeling a wee bit better, now just with a headache and a little appetite.
to stay preoccuied while sick i have been watching desperate housewives, sex & the city, grey’s anatomy, ellen, E!, etc….
what gets you through when sick?
