Last night after the pool party at TomsÂ house I lost hearing in my left ear. Um that’s not a good feeling! I’m at the doctor right now having it looked at. I suspect it’s Swimmers Ear.
Update: Interestingly enough the doc says never to use Q-tips to clean your ears. You get a little bit out, but the rest just gets impacted in your ear. Rather, you should only clean what you can with a tissue on the end of your finger. He says just “Google it, it’s everywhere.”
Update: omg I can hear again! There was a giant piece of wax in my ear, like 1⁄4 inch wide by about 1⁄2 an inch long! Gross!
