~๐ŸŒผ~ Working on me update…

Hello, All!

Yesterday was far from a fun-filled day for me. I’ve mentioned a couple of times that my allergies have been messing with me, as they have many people I know here and in my personal life.

Well, I broke down and went to the doctor’s first thing this morning because the pain in my head and dizzy spells have been making me feel worse.ย  Which in turn spurred an anxiety attack last night.ย  My roommate offered to take me to the hospital last night, but I declined.

It turned out I have an inflammation of the Mastoid Process and Malleus. Evidentally, a fairly decent inflammation that required draining my ear.ย  Fun stuff. (Not!) It’s funny to me in a sense, I clean my ears practically every day,ย  but I actually caused this problem all on my own.ย  All the crap floating in the air such as pollen and dust, I inadvertently pushed into my ear canal, causing this inflammation.

I’m currently on antibiotics and need to continue flushing my ear with a sort of saline solution to loosen all that is packed in there.ย  (Doesn’t that sound lovely?)ย  Regardless, this is what was causing the dizziness and pain.ย  It wasn’t simply my allergies.

tired zzz GIFย ย I’m still a bit drowsy which for the life of me I can’t understand why.ย  Hell, I slept for nearly a period of 30 hours with one break to grab something to eat and post my “Daily Quote”.ย ย 

I decided to just take the rest of the day in stride and see what pans out.ย  I have so many blogs to catch up reading on, plus I’ve seen so many new prompts to create with.ย  But, again…gonna still take it easy until I feel a bit more awake and functioning.ย  LOL! – Like I was really functioning before.ย  Hahaha!

Alrighty then, that’s the scoop of why I was all discombobulated over the last couple of days.ย  A least there is a light at the end of the ear tunnel.ย  (I realize that was extremely lame, sorry).

I hope all of you are having an enjoyable Thursday/ Friday Eve!ย  Thank you, for those who all wished me well, I sincerely appreciate all your kind words and thoughts.ย ย 

Take Care & God Bless,

Beckie ๐Ÿ’—

  1. I’m glad you decided to go to the doctor and that they were able to figure out what was happening with you. Is that saline solution called Debrox? That’s what my audiologist gave me to use because my ears were full of wax. I couldn’t figure out why because I never put the Q-Tip inside my ear canal. Although I do shove my hearing aid tips as far into my ear canals as they can go lol! Anyway, I ended up going to the doctor who cleaned them out for me, and he said that some people just get more wax build-up than others. He said there’s nothing you can do (except go to the doctor I guess, to have your ears cleaned).

  2. Well no wonder you were so tired…fighting off an infection on top of the histamines going bonkers. Your poor immune system was working overtime!
    Ear problems are awful! I suffered from vertigo for several years in my 30s because of ear problems. Besides my partial deafness from a scarred eardrum caused by Scarlet Fever when I was a baby, I had ear infections into my teens.๐Ÿ˜ฉ
    Nap when you need to! My body decided I needed a nap this morning๐Ÿ˜‚ it’s a good idea to listen to your body๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜

    • When I was a baby I used to get ear aches all the time. When I was around 4-5 years-old, I had my adenoids removed. It wasn’t until the late 90’s that I had another issue with my ears. Same thing as now. Mastoid inflammation and the Malleus tip were really inflamed.
      You, my sweet friend, should donate your body to science with all the issues you have had.
      I’m glad you lisened to yourself and took a nap today. You’re absolutely right, we need to listen to what our bodies are telling us.
      Today, was the first day I didn’t sleep. I’m pretty beat now.
      I hate that I missed two days of blogging and reading. I have so much to catch up on tomorrow. LOL!
      But, if my body tells me differently, I’ll just take it slow again. Love you, Sweetie!!! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜˜

      • It’s funny you say I should donate my body because that’s exactly what I’ve told my daughters to do๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰ I told them not to waste money on funeral or burial/cremation. Just have a big ol party and tell funny stories about me.๐Ÿ˜‚
        Rest well, heal quickly๐Ÿ˜˜ Big hugs!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’Œ

          • No worries my dear๐Ÿ˜‚ I don’t plan on going anywhere any time soon. I’m still laughing and learning. Lots of life in this old gal๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜
            Before surgeries with anesthesia they always ask about medical directives, more paperwork…no thank you. I’ve just told my daughters everything I want, since if I can’t, they’ll be in charge of my medical. My older daughter is a nurse, so that helps too. And I seriously told them just to donate my body, save money.

  3. Yep. I feel for you. I had a doc who told me to put nothing in my ear smaller than my elbow. No Q-tips. I am so sorry you have this problem and can bet that appointment was no fun. Rest and recup. We will be here when you feel better.
