Feeling Sick and Blue

I have been battling an ear infection since Thanksgiving and it is getting worse, not better. The doctor is a jackass and hasn’t helped me at all. My face is swollen and all my lymph nodes are inflamed. Not fun to be me!  The last two days have been really bad.  To top it off, I’ve had court every day this week, so needless to say, I have no energy as all my focus has been on getting prepared for court and doing my job all while feeling like I have a huge throbbing heart on the side of my head. Thump, thump, thump.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to concentrate when every heartbeat is on the side of your head? UGH!

And I’m a little blue- missing my son. I get to see him on the 18th, but since I feel bad, it seems like I’m moping about everything.

Have a good day. Me and my ear will be over there in the corner whimpering.



  1. Hang in there, baby! Hope you feel better soon…

    • Thanks Liv. I’ve almost been tempted to become Van Gogh and cut it off.

  2. Whimper away, my friend. Sometimes, that’s the only way to get through something like this. Heal quickly! You need to be in top form for your son’s visit. 🙂

    • Thanks Laurie. I’m going over there so I’m even more concerned about the ear since I’ll be flying. OUCH.

  3. You’re right in flying with an ear infection. Be sure and take some antihistamine. I fly with Excedrin PM Nothing worse than an ear ache unless it’s a toothache and those you can usually take care of easier.

    Is the whole family flying over? Hard when you have kids on both sides of the pond.

    • Thanks for the advice, Lavada. I will def. take antihistamine! We are all going. We rented an apartment as the fiancee will be there, too.

  4. Aw man, I hope you feel better. Maybe the infection will go away before you see him again so you can enjoy the visit.

  5. Poor, Girl! Hope you feel better soon. Maybe you can rest later. I find that a hot toddy always help too. Rita Bay

    • Thanks Rita- I could become an alcoholic with this pain!

  6. Bless your heart. It’s hard to work and it’s really hard when you’re sick. Feel better soon. You have to get well for your son’s homecoming. You may need to call that doctor back up and tell him you need a different medication or something in addition to what you already have. I’ve had to do that for myself and my girls. It’s your body.


    • Linda. Already did. This is second round of antibiotics. He’s not coming home. We are going there. Thanks for the good advice. Sometimes I,hate the med profession.
