Well, the doctor was wrong. I did not feel better this morning.
So I called said doctor, who suggested that I should feel better by tomorrow morning...
So, I am, again, just waiting for this day to be over, in the hope that by tomorrow I really will be feeling better.
It seems kind of minor, what with cancer, and all that, but my ear really hurts!!
The pain radiates all over the right side of my face and neck -- it hurts my jaw! So, it hurts to talk and to chew. Not that I'm all that hungry. The pain made me lose my appetite. Ironically, I have to eat food with the antibiotics. I hope chocolate counts as food.
I also have constant ringing in my ear. It is SO ANNOYING!!
And THE PRESSURE is UNBEARABLE!!
I totally understand why a kid would stick something in their ear. It feels like you want to pop the bubble and let out the pressure. It's like there is a watermellon trying to pop out of your ear!
Last night, I missed my support group and the play put on by the sixth graders (which I have seen every year for years!). This morning I thought I missed the last meeting of my art class, but it was postponed (I felt slightly better when I found that out). And I cancelled swimming lessons (and you know I have to be feeling really bad to cancel that!).
All in all, I am feeling pretty miserable and sorry for myself!!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
Next Week Rosh Chodesh Elul!
