It's a Great Big Sound-Making World

Today I went to the doctor, and had the wax syringed from my ears!!! I love hearing all the sounds the world makes. Birds tweet at me on the walk hom, I can hear cars miles off on the highway, and the air-conditioner in the doctor's office blows noisily. Right now, I can hear the PCU humming at me. Plus, the keys echo so loudly when I type.

Of course, I'm also a little dizzy and nauseous from the water rushing through my inner ears. Plus, I'm just dying from the walk home in the sun, all the way up the big hill, groceries in hands.

My doctor is nice, but really test/medication happy. Whatever's wrong with you, he just bungs you on medication or sends you for tests. Usually both. I mention this because it's actually deeply ironic. The one time I went to him with something and he didn't send me for tests "just to be safe" was last year. He examined the lump on my neck, identified it as a cyst and told me to have it cut off but not worry, as it was harmless.

O' course, turns out it was a cancerous tumour so WHOOPS! I was really mad about it, but it wasn't really his fault. The bugger looked just like a cyst. The surgeon thought it was a cyst, too. Then he actually saw the thing when it was cut out and had no idea what it was. It was a disguised cancer, the dastardly swine! Sneaking into my body in dark glasses and a trenchcoat... Still, it got its deserts, all cut up and chemicalled with tests run on it. Haha!

So anyway, I went to the doctor because of my sleeping problems and because of my extreme cramps.

Long story short, now I've got to get blood tests and an ultrasound. He's put me on anti-depressants again, and also the Pill.

In other news, eeew! I'm drinking that bottled green tea, and the best before date is November 7th. Yuck. Not gonna stop drinking it though, cos I'm dehydrated and if I did, I'd have to get up and go to the fridge for something else to drink. Screw that.

The first person who's ears I syringed was my supervisor. It was scary, I kept worrying I was gonna perforate his eardrum.

Peforating supervisor's eardrum=automatic failure, at least in my head!

Not to mention gross ;)

I am glad you have forgiven your doctor dearest, and I'm glad you're getting yourself sorted out.

*Big Hugs*

and stop drinking that stuff! Green tea in date tastes yucky!!

Ear syringing isn't pleasant.

Kayt - go look for some nice green tea! Look in t2tea.com.au

How often should I have that?, I've never had it done, My doctor shines a light in my ear and didn't do anything further - does that mean I don't need it done? It sounds bad, does it hurt?

If your doctor looks in your ears and sees all is fine, you don't need to have them syringed. My doctor says some people do and some people don't.

It does hurt a little, but mostly it's just strange.

Say, your doctor's strange. Of course, so were my previous doctors, who, when I complained about my tonsils hurting (for the very first time), told me that operating is the way to go. Or who told me that 'it's good when it gets worse, then we can get your tonsils about in maybe half a year!' (yes, I do like being told that there's nothing better than my condition worsening). Well, to be honest, the queues are incredibly long for almost all specialist procedures (set an appointment for new tests for the strange lump in my breast in the beginning of September, got an appointment on 13th of February).

Hm. Is your bottled green tea good mostly? Our local one is very good, but the other ones creep me out. I'm a tea addict though. (:

It's very nice. But it might be an acquired taste. I like the mango flavoured one.

Omigod! That sucks, though. Is it just where you live, or everywhere?

Mango-flavoured green tea. Hmm... Well, it -sounds- good. ^-^

It does suck, yes. In Estonia it's like that everywhere (but then again, it's such a small country). Technically if they find something dangerous, they should speed up the whole process considerably. I hope I never have to find out if they actually do that. (:

Bottled green tea? I have never heard osuch a thing.

*stupid question alert*

So...is it cold? Or do you heat it up? [/stupidquestion]

It's cold. We have all kinds of bottled tea, but I drink the green or white ones 'cos of the antioxidants.

It doesn't taste that much like tea. They flavour it.
