I don’t know if it’s something that was happening anyway or a reaction to the new vaccine (I’m inclined to the former), but my left ear is pounding, closed up.
I’ve always been partially deaf on that side (and didn’t make it better with music so loud it drowned out the feelings of my own body), but this is different. I thought it might be wax build-up, but it doesn’t seem to be. Hopefully, I haven’t damaged my ear drums. I woke up with it yesterday, so I’m not sure if it was exacerbated by the cold shower or travelling rendition of OK Computer and OK Go, but I am essentially deaf on the left side, for now.
On the plus side, our new water heater is going in today. Hopefully. It better be.
Cold showers are brutal, especially when it’s no longer summer.
