The Better To Hear You With...

To say that I've had "ear trouble" in my life is akin to saying that Michael Jackson has had "pigment trouble" in his. Except that my trouble started at birth. And also, is not self-induced. And, okay, maybe that's just a really bad analogy. Blame it on the cold meds, alright? :P

But "ear trouble" in my life? Ummmm..... YES. If there is anything more boring than listening to someone talking about their health troubles, it's reading someone's writing about their health troubles. So, let's not go there, 'kay? :P Let's just keep it at this: ear pain is the worst pain I've ever experienced (I'll let you know how it compares to giving birth when I, you know, get around to that), and because of my ear "issues" I am on high alert regarding my ears. High Alert, let me tell you, at any change whatsoever when it comes to my ears. So when I woke up on Tuesday I was 100% confident that I had an ear infection. Which sucks. {And--what am I, three?} What doesn't suck is finding a doctor who has never seen me before but can get me in that same day and be kind and actually listen to me and prescribe me antibiotics and a nice cough syrup to help me sleep. His being from South Korea originally and wanting to hear all about my travels and experiences there--and telling me about a great new South Korean restaurant here!--was just a big fat bonus. Go, Dr. Kang! Thanks, Dude! Kamsahamnida!

So. I am on the road to recovery. But I'm still on cold meds, which means my brain is not really firing on all cylinders, and my ear is still all plugged-up feeling, which makes me anxious, which makes me tired. I know that so many people are dealing with such worse stuff than a silly old summer flu and ear infection, but/so/and I can't wait to just kick this thing in the rear and get back to myself! Thanks for all the e-mails and comments and thoughts. See you tomorrow for Favorite {Photo} Friday!

So sorry about your ear problems! That has got to be extremely annoying. Anyway, about finding couple friends (from your post before), AMEN! My husband and I always say, "Yeah, I like her, but he's a real drag!" Or vice versa. It's so hard! Love your blog by the way!
