Warning...some gross stuff may follow...

well, i never thought i would say this....ever. i miss going to the doctor in Croatia. there it is. out on the table for the world to see. never saw this coming did you? yeah, me neither.

ok, now first of all, i went to the doctor about two weeks ago because my ear was bothering me and my throat had been hurting. they did a test and said that i had neither tonsilitis nor strep. great! then i was thinking they would do something about my ear...but no....take a decongestant and drink lots of fluids. nothing was done to my ear. this inspite of the fact that the doctor said my eardrum was mostly blocked and couldn't be fully seen. ok, fine, do what the doctor says. even though i'm not happy about it.

enter last night. i woke up around midnight with a sharp pain in my right ear. to anyone this would spell trouble, to me, it struck panic in my heart. too many long hours have i suffered with ear pain....i liken it to a screwdriver being jammed into your ear and left there for weeks. ok, hours, but it feels like weeks.

i KNEW two weeks ago that something was up and needed to be done. anyway, i decided to go back to the doctor today. and although i was prescribed an anit-biotic and recommened some drops, still nothing about getting what is in my ear OUT of my ear. argh!!!! in Croatia they would have been very invasive, no thought at all about the pain it would have caused me, but they would have dealt with the issue, not simply prescribe an anit-biotic, not unless it was truly necessary.

so here i sit, with my ear still bunged times!!


Have you ever had one of those moments of discovery when you find out something that you wish were not true, but really you had a feeling about it all along, and now that your suspicions were confirmed, you'd rather not think about the whole thing anyway, yet you are a bit disgusted by it and also somewhat angry? Yeah, havin' one of those moments at the moment...

"Wait" - Mat Kearney

The wind hit my back, cold as I remember
And caught me off guard, in the middle of December
Sometimes a crowded room, can feel the most alone
Sometimes I wonder why, I won't pick up the phone when
This wall is glaring and it's too high for me to climb
I've ran and ran and now there's nothing left behind
I see a picture of a broken man inside
I've tried and tried and now there's nothing left but time
I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you alone
And I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you alone
Together we will fly tonight
And leave all the rest behind
I'll wait for you
These hands can feel like they're not even mine
A tree and a nail and a cry in the night
Sometimes a little step is the greatest divide
Sometimes I feel your breath right at my side when
Here I am at the edge of the road
One hand on the end of the rope
One crack and it breaks alone
Wondering who'se gonna take me home
On my knees when you call my bluff
Begging please from the edge of the ruff
And I know I've had enough, and I know it, and I know it
