So, where to begin.
I have a newfound respect for deaf people. I’ve always had respect for deaf people, but that respect has reached new heights the past few days. After developing ear infections in both ears (in addition to my sinus infection and throat infection) I have lost my ability to hear.
It’s a scary thing… not being able to hear. So, on Sunday night when Knight took me to the hospital to see a doctor, I was hoping for some help, some real help.
What day is it?
I spent 6 hours in the hospital on Sunday night before I got to see a doctor. There was so much pressure in my face I couldn’t even stand up straight. The doctor came in, I told him I couldn’t hear anything and he still kept talking to me in a regular tone. DUDE, I CAN’T FUCKING HEAR YOU. THAT’S WHY I’VE BEEN WAITING HERE FOR SIX HOURS.
I nearly lost my mind at the doctor. Honestly, six hours for him to see me for three and a half minutes, to tell me I am fine and it’ll go away in a week. Listen buddy, I’m at the hospital because when I get sick like this, it doesn’t go away. I’m one of those people who waits until I’m really damn sick and I can’t deal with life. Had he spent more than 3.5 minutes with me he probably could have realized that.
Props to Knight for listening to me whine in the hospital that whole time. He was incredibly patient with me considering all the whining I did that evening.
Well here were are, I still can’t really hear. It’s scary, and frustrating. I’ve spent most of every day since last Friday sleeping, and I don’t have many plans to do much more in the near future.
