Aliens and ears

This week has basically sucked really big ass. Not the most mature way of putting this, but, it's true. Personal relationships have either turned to the worse, or threatened to. Politics - nuff said. All in all, not a good week. Blech.

Thankfully, something good happened today. My lovely purple alien has finally boarded a truck in Miami to slowly make its way north. (Remember when I said it would be here by today? They lied.) 132 pounds of computer goodness should be here Wednesday. I'll be crossing my fingers.

In bad news, I am ready to slice my ear off. Seriously. I wish I can say I am being overdramatic when I claim that I am going nuts, but I am. When the sound of waves crashing and constant unpleasant tones are bombarding your ear, louder than your own brain... it's maddening. Still not sleeping right. Doubt I will until my surgery - which I have definetely decided to go through with. I can't live like this. Either give me my ears back, or turn then off altogether. I'd rather hear nothing.

May next week be better. *looks up high*

Slicing your ear off won't help. Trust me on this. The surgery should help. They can do nifty stuff with laproscopy these days.

good luck with your surgery! I am optimistic for you.

Yeah, politics really bites when it's personal. What can you do? You pick your battles, and strengthen your relationships with the people who really matter.

I hope your alien lands soon.

I've been there...
And it sucks. I'm so sorry to hear that you're going through this, Boymeat. Ears are the worst, and so frustrating because the state of the science isn't where we might wish it would be.

I had a SCUBA diving accident last year that left me with insane ringing, fuzzy static-sounding noise, and now permanent nerve damage and hearing loss. For me, the ringing died out after a while (thank goodness), but the rest is permanent. It's dealable and we all adapt, but I just wanted to tell you to empathize with what you must be going through. I am so happy that you are being proactive and taking care of yourself about this--it can only get better from here, right?

I never post to LJ, but I had to drop in and say I'll be thinking about you.

*big hugs and best wishes*

Minx? Oh my, I had no idea this was you. I've been wondering for ages who was that name on my friend's list.

Good to see you sweetie... been a long time.

I don't know...I just had throat and nose surgery, and the recovery is sucking pretty fucking badly...I guess we'll compare notes when we're both on the other side of it...

damn...which response to use...

first impulse was "what the hell are you looking at me for? I had NOTHING to do with this one!"

the second one...well, I'll get back to you on the second one ;)

Feel better, Picasso
