Can you believe it? I think I have an ear infection. Not actually diagnosed but how else do you explain the fuzzy cotton ball feel in my ears, like I’m flying high above the clouds in a 747? I can’t even pop them without it hurting. Not excruciating, just annoying.
I can’t remember the last time I had an ear infection. Or if I’ve ever had one. Maybe it was as a kid and I pushed it so far from my mind that I can’t recall. But my sinuses are still sore from the lingering cold, irritated by the dry air and now, the ears.
I was thinking about the symptoms they tell us, as parents, to watch for with our children. Pulling on the ears, irritable. That is totally me. Well, the pulling on the ears part. Me, irritable? Ha. Never. But how can you not be irritated when your ears won’t pop or you feel like you have cotton balls stuffed inside your head?
