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.
this pretty much sums up my week:
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?
