Why Do They Do These Things To Us?

Just a little whiny post today.

Since mid-February, I have had many idiotic contraptions stuck in my right ear. It hurts and I’m fed up.

I have been to more doctors and specialists in the last three years, than I have visited my entire life. It’s not that I was never sick, because I’ve had my share of colds and a bout of the flu once. I also endured three gestational periods, with frequent draining of blood, pointing out how much weight I was gaining, and the measuring of my ever growing belly.

We moms know we don’t have time for illnesses, so I sucked up most of my ailments and soldiered on.

Last week, or so ago, the ENT gave me drops to put in my ear for an infection. Did he take a test or anything to determine what kind of critter was causing havoc in my ear? No.

So I returned this week with the same problem. He determined that I needed to have my ear dried out, so I was given a prescription to puff some powdered medicine into my ear canal with a funky little contraption. It makes me wonder what inventors of medical torture devices are thinking when they invent the best way to administer medications. They’re sick minded people–very sick.

Obviously, I will return next week with the same symptoms.

I had one day of being able to hear out of that ear. I’m now dealing with a dry, blocked ear. Oh, and did I mention it hurts now? πŸ™‚

Yesterday, I learned that I don’t have a brain tumor causing my loss of hearing and aching ear, but I still have a problem, and I’m rather exhausted being the local guinea pig.

I just hope there isn’t a tiny earwig, eating its way through my brain, leaving eggs behind. Just like this post of mine.

**while I’m vaguely blogging about motherhood, our little mama robin flew the coop. I thought it was my frequent visits to peek and see if there were babies yet. I felt so bad thinking I had scared her off. After Googling for information about robins….I got a mirror and checked in her nest. No eggs. When I peeked last week, there were four eggs. Some critter robbed the mama of her babies! I suppose it’s the cycle of life, but I was so looking forward to the babies.


About April

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

    I hear you! (Just). Isn’t earache awful? (no wonder it upsets children so much). And isn’t it uncomfortable when an ear canal is blocked? You have my sympathies – especially as I have something brewing in my right ear – the ache, the pressure, the feeling unbalanced, the missing out on bits of conversation (although this can sometimes be good ;-)) and often my jaw shifts a little as well. I’m off to track down some drops now too. Feel better soon :-).

      I hope you have more success than I’ve had. I’ve tried over-the-counter drops, decongestants, ibuprofen for pain, and three trips to the doctor. Not being able to hear parts of conversation is frustrating, but I’m with you, it can be good sometimes. πŸ™‚

    Sad about the robin 😦
    I know the issues of ears all too well my dear. I hope they find the reason for it soon.

      The first visit to the ear, nose and throat clinic, the doctor barely looked in my ear. The second time, he really gave it a look over. The second time I asked him to not tell me if there was a bug in there. I also asked him about the possibility of a tumor. So….I think he’s onto my anxiety issues. πŸ™‚

        Well that could be a good thing. Let’s not worry about bugs or tumours and focus on the possibility of ear wax instead. πŸ˜‰

          They’re calling it “debris” according to Google, that’s like a fungal infection, which is just as creepy. At least I don’t have a jelly bean stuck in there. πŸ™‚

  3. Glad for the good news you got yesterday. Bummed for the no information news on what is going on with your ear. Poor mama bird. Is there any chance they already flew the nest?

    Ouch ears hurt when they are misbehaving. Hope it gets sorted soon. Poor Mama Robin.
