I woke up on Monday, and couldn't hear a thing out of my right ear. There was no pain, and there was no blood. There just also wasn't any sound.
So I did what any self respecting 20-something would do.
I asked facebook.
And then I googled it.
And then I ran to the store, and picked up some wax-dissolving ear drops.
I wasn't really worried.
But it's been 2 days now, and I still can't hear out of that ear.
So I'm doing the responsible thing...
...and asking you.
(My next step? Twitter. Of course.)
I could go to the doctor, but in my experience, they usually say super frustrating things like "oh, you can't breath because your throat is swollen closed? Gargle salt. And then pay me $80."
And so I'm asking you. Have you ever gone deaf before? And do you have any ideas on how to get my hearing back?
Or should I just brush up on my ASL skills?
PS. For those of you trying not to dry heave, I swear I clean my ears regularly.
-No really, I do!
