Earache, my eye

A couple days ago, I felt an irritation just inside my left ear, like a pimple rising. I began periodically to put hydrogen peroxide on it, but it didn't get better. It became more noticeable. About 6 a.m. this morning, I woke up, either from the thunderstorm we were having or from the pain, but in any case couldn't go back to sleep because my ear was so swollen and hurting.

So I got cleaned up and went to look for medical care. I figured if I couldn't sleep because of it, I oughta do whatever it took, right now. My doctor would take ten days to get in to see; Urgent Care wasn't open for two hours (how "urgent" are they prepared to be?); so I wound up at the local emergency room.

I got right in. The doctor said it was an under-the-skin infection and gave me some powerful antibiotics. We'll see if that takes care of it.

It's always something, you know?
