My other ear isn't much better...hearing wise. I went to a show back in June or July to see an awesome band play...and they are LOUD! Like Led Zeppelin loud. I saw them play in a tiny basement, and I stood right next to the speaker. My ears always ring after a show...but the ringing never really went away in my right ear. I can still hear but not as good as before that show. I thought I ruptured my eardrum then. Now that its actually happened in the other ear, I know I didn't rupture the other one. I always bring my earplugs to shows now.
So now I feel almost deaf! Its really painful too. I've been taking extra strength tylenol to make it through the day. I was bawling like a friggin baby last night...TWICE...because the medicine wore off and I was in so much pain. Last year at this time I had my widsom teeth out. Definitely not as painful as this!!!!!!!
Anyway I had to call off work again today. My equilibrium is all thrown off and I feel like I'm going to throw up because of it. Plus my ear is leaking and I don't want to run around the shoe store where I work with a tissue hanging out of my ear! hahahaha! Hopefully the medicine will start working soon and I can go back to work on Saturday. My check is gonna SUCK this week.
I went to the pharmacy yesterday to drop off my prescriptions. The pharmacist told me to come back in the afternoon, they were really swamped! So I came back and I forgot to give them my new insurance card so he had to take 20 minutes and run all the information through the computer. I took a seat and waited. A lady came in after me...she cleans the store that is next to the shoe store where I work. The pharmacist told her that her cough medicine would be $16.99...and she pitched a fit about the price! When it came my turn to get my prescriptions, my total came to $130!!!! I wanted to tell that lady off so bad! What does she have to complain about! I had to go back home and get my parent's credit card to pay for them! She wasn't there when I came back. Then to make things worse, the credit card machine wasn't working correctly!!! As I was waiting for the guy to fix it, my ear started leaking again and I had to ask the pharmacist for a tissue! It was so gross! Finally he got it working and I paid and left!
This has been the worst Christmas I can ever remember. Hopefully 2008 will be better!!!
