My left ear is once again totally closed down for business. This is the second time in a week that I have gone swimming and emerge the next day with a throbbing ear that is totally useless. I now require one of those old-timey, hearing things that people from the '40's needed when their hearing left them.
I could use a special brand of ear drops which contains the ingredients of lava and leeches. In the meantime I am jamming a heated fork into my head to relieve the pressure. This isn't helping but at least I have begun to hallucinate.
