A visit to the doctor on Sunday morning confirmed that I had a severe ear infection. Dutifully, I purchased the medication prescribed and headed home.
Today, there is no pain but the stuffy feeling lingers. My ear is constantly ringing and when I speak, it seems as if instead of going forth, my words are echoing back in my head. It's the weirdest thing I've ever experienced.
In my mind I am preparing for a life of diminished hearing. For now, I can hear pretty well. The only problem is that because of the echo, when I think I am speaking loudly enough for someone to hear, they tell me that my lips are moving but they don't hear a word.
It this persists, I'll visit the doctor again.
It is a bit of a struggle to concentrate on my writing, but I am determined with God's help to write.
