Friday morning I got in an excellent run and then towards the end of the day, I felt it coming on. The feeling...you know it's coming. I was crossing my fingers - hoping it was not true. But there was no doubt. It was an ear infection. Ugh.
Saturday morning I woke up and was suppose to do a 2 mile open water swim - well, that was not going to happen. But the double red flags (for those of you who don't know what that means - don't get in or else you will drown) did not let anyone get in and swim. So we hopped on our bikes and got in a 'welcome to hell' hot and humid three hour ride. Right after that I made a bee line to my dr's office - thank goodness he is open on Saturday.
This is not the most organized office - and doc like to chat. But with luck, I was the ONLY person in the waiting room. Awesome. He looked in my ears - yep. Just what I thought.
Doc: "How painful is it?"
Me: "Not too bad"
So we wrote me my scrips and I headed over to get them filled.
Pharmacist: "It will be about 10 min"
10 min my ass. Make it more like an hour. By about the 45 min mark, she could tell that I was dying of pain. So she pushed my drops past a bunch of old people's refills (who acted like they owned the place) and I finally made it home.
*Small rant - I have the highest respect for people who are older then me. But come on. Don't argue with Pharmicist when I get my ear drops first. I know you're blood pressure medicine is very important, but don't give me the stink eye when I'm in freaking tears, smell like hell, and can barely move my head.*
This is how bad it was. I did not even hit the shower. Drops in and I'm passed out on the couch. Riding clothes and all. Thankfully, I thought it would be a good idea to throw down some towels before I hit the couch.
But I was like this the rest of the day:
I'm better now - but man I hate ear infections. I used to get them all of the time when I was younger back in the three swim practices a day times. But I don't remember ever being in this much pain!
Hope everyone had a better weekend then I did!
