Well, I went to the campus clinic this morning. When I woke up, my whole right side was just throbbing, my eye was even more swollen and the ear, as it has been for several weeks, felt wonky.
Turns out, I have a raging ear infection…it’s like I’m a child again! I never hear of adults getting ear infections. Also I’ve got some funky sinus. My blood pressure was wonky, the bottom number was high but the top number was good. I have no idea what any of that means. Will google.
The doc gave me some steroid nose spray to use daily, in addition to the netti pot/saline rinse as well as some honkin antibiotics that MUST BE TAKEN WITH FOOD. I don’t know how many people have told me that. So. Hopefully this will go away in a few days.
Explains why I just haven’t felt good in awhile.
Balancing out my childlike ear quandry came the use of my very grown up health insurance and perscription benefits.
That’s a great balance.
What a relief.
I’ve filled my scrips, home now to read and my goal is to perhaps finish a paper.
They’re all coming due and Im just a titch panicky. It will help, the feeling better.

The ear infection thing happens to adults all the time. And they can get like yours and make the entire head just go crazy. Glad you’re working on it!
DON’T GOOGLE IT! Just don’t.
My friend Steph ignored an ear infection for too long and it caused serious damage to her inner ear. She almost had to have surgery on it and her hearing is wonky in that ear some times. Take care of yourself. I love that you have insurance now!
I googled it…apparently I have a bit if hypertension.
ain’t that some shit.
