Another slightly whiny post. But I will distract you with pretty pictures of my new shoes so it won't be too tiresome. The truth is that I am very tired of all this being sick business. It's been dragging on for two months now. I want it to stop, no more pills, no more nose drops or saline. No more doctors prying and poking. I want to be done with it.
First the good news: My ear drum is now almost healed. And my hearing is slowly returning to normal. As far as the doctors predict there are no permanent damages. Needless to say, I was extremely relieved.
I was very disappointed however with the way my treatment has been conducted. Most of the time the doctors couldn't be bothered less, they just want you in and out of the examination room as quickly as possible. I understand it's flu season and there are a lot of sick people in the waiting room. But seriously if I come back in three weeks and there is no significant improvement in my condition, shouldn't that set off some kind of alarm?
Then there is the problem with prescribing medication. Without going into too much detail, I was prescribed some corticosteroid nasal spray without being told what it was. Without being warned it might seriously irritate my throat. Seriously, my ear infection was a result of a throat infection. And we're back where we started...
Bottom line: Still not quite healthy. The next week will be crucial because of the precarious nature of my condition. Since the weather here has worsened (as I'm writing this, it's actually snowing outside) I'll be staying at home eating my vitamins and keeping my fingers crossed.
The shoes I wrote about here arrived last Monday and they are sooooo cute and comfy. The shoe box has a picture of two adorable Michelangelo type angels on the lid. I know pretty packaging is nothing but a cunning marketing strategy, yet I can't help myself.
They have a bit of a wedge and since I haven't owned a pair of wedges for at least a decade I will have to get used to walking in them.
I decided to model these wearing some dotted socks, since my legs are ghostly pale.
