Announcing the Proud Delivery of ...

The end of a cotton swab! LOL That's right folks. I've been having trouble with my left ear for a month now. Felt like water was in there and nothing I could do would get it to clear up. I tried sleeping on it, flushing it out with water during a shower, digging it out with a cotton swab, shaking my head until I saw stars, nothing worked.

I had trouble hearing and I finally broke down and went in to see my doctor this morning. The office staff got a good laugh at my expense when they discovered what my problem was.

I'm a cotton swab user and have been for years. Can't stand that wet feeling in my ears after a shower. Now I'll have to be careful because that was an expensive delivery! Not only did I have to pay the doctor for getting the thing out of my ear but I also have to use ear drops for the next week to prevent infection.


Gee, who would have figured the end of a cotton swab could cause so much trouble? But thank God I can hear again:)

This is actually a relatively common problem. Glad all ended well.

I'm with you Debbi. I also use a cotton swab but I was told that as long as I would not give it up, just to use it on the outside of the ear canal and not to insert it into the ear. Very difficult to always do but I just won't give up my Q-tip.

LOL...I can't resist sticking it as far into my ear as I can, it feels so good! And I hate wet ears!
