All Whiney Bitch, All the Time

I get my stitches out tomorrow and the results of the tissue biopsy are due as well. All is expected to be normal, in which case I can officially stop obsessing over this freakin' skin cancer episode.

Last Monday I made a quickie doctor's appointment because it felt like I had an ear infection. I'm not a hypochondriac, but when I need to go see the doc, I do it. Over the last six months, I've seen the docs way too often. So yeah, I had an ear infection. Both ears, in fact, along with a sinus infection. After four days on antibiotics, not only were the ears not feeling better, they were hurting. Another call to the doctor's office resulted in a new prescription, the antibiotic equivalent of a surgical nuclear strike. I'm all for that. I started the new regime yesterday, but it'll take a day or two to really start kicking in, and in the meantime I've been popping tylenol like candy to keep myself from driving an icepick through my eardrum. And sleeping. I don't sleep much, I've never needed all that much. Yet I've probably slept 36 out of the last 48 hours, and been miserable every waking moment.

This has got to end. I've had one helluva string of minor medical mindfucks, and I'm ready to surrender. Hear that God? UNCLE already!!!!!

JEEZ you poor thing. OW. I've had lots of shit zapped off and a couple "bibopsies" (My Big Fat Greek Wedding reference). Ear infections are nothing to mess with, so I'm REALLY glad you went to the doc for it.

As someone with chronic "swimmer's ear", I feel your pain. I always keep my super-awesome magical ear drops in stock after the long holiday weekend when I had a flare-up and nothing to fix it with. Felt like a pussy, going to the emergency clinic for an earache, but they are MISERABLE.

And good luck with the biopsy, it's always forever to get the news back, even if it's not, you know what I mean?

Oh, and the obsessing probably won't be over. I had a mole removed 15 years ago, and I still have mole and freckle paranoia.

I have to agree w/ Jen about the obsessing thingy. You'll look differently at every little bump that pops up.

And a little advice on the stronger antibiotics, if I may? Start eating yogurt while you're on 'em.

Why the yogurt?

Isn't it fun getting old(er)?
My husband had a cancer scare when he first retired from the Navy a few years ago and just this year they found a "lump" on his thyroid and did a biopsy as well. All is well though and no cancer was found.
As for the ear and sinus infection, I hope that your meds work and you get well soon. I hate being sick. The boys in my house all just went through something and all of them ended up in the ER with high temps etc. Yuck.

Antibiotics kill off helpful digestive, umm, biotics. Yogurt replaces them. Keeps everything healthy and, er, normal down there.

Nowhere in your rambling, incoherent article was there any sign of intelligence. I provide you with no points and could possibly God have mercy on your soul
