I'll be on the down low for a while, appearently I have a perforated eardrum that doesnt feel too good (actually they say I've had it for years) which now looking at it, I can see. I was a little kid, I thought the symptoms were normal and the pain never lasted over an hour if I were to get any water in my ear. But this time it was not going away, so I went to the doctor and he sent me to the ENT. They say I have a hole in my ear drum and its causing pain and sever hearing loss in my right ear :( I can hear most things, but say I'm laying on my side with my left ear tucked away, if you whisper anything or try to say anything from a distance, I can only hear that you are saying something, I cant understand it.
I have surgery in 3 weeks.. I really hope my ear can finally get better. :)


Hey guys! I survived my surgery and am now recovering. Its too soon to say if it was successful (it takes time for my eardrum to accept or reject the replacement). I look forward to seeing if I can finially hear the world at 100% :)


I have returned again, and hopefully for a while.

I FINALLY have a new laptop :la:
Neither my dad or I realized I didnt have virus protection of any sort of my laptop and it got a virus that completely fried my hard drive. I loved my Toshiba in the sense that I've had it for years, but for anyone thats followed me for a while they'd know I had waaaay too many issues with that computer crashing spazzing and flat out frying.. Honestly, I've never had a completely rewarding experience with Toshia, but I havent had any experience with Gateway at all (I didnt even know they were still in business ._. )


I am still having issues with my janky right ear. I go back in 4 weeks to see if the surgery was successful and the graft took place. My recovery has not been pretty though. I'm having all the side effects from the Tympranoplasty, anesthesia and hydrocodone combine..
I have had no appetite as I side effect of  anesthesia, and I have no desire to try eating anyways because the nerves that work with my taste were around where they did the surgery, so its all janky as well (though it will eventually return) currently everything taste metallic and awful. My inner ear is messed up so my balance is awful. I get both common headaches and pain in my head where the stitches are, I have dry mouth, nausea (both from standing up for longer than about.. 2-3min, and the hydrocodone aswell) the surgery itself has very common, manageable side effects, its the hydrocodone that takes all my energy and makes me feel sick, and the anesthesia is haziness. I'm not thinking as sharply as I normally do, I have alot of trouble expressing thoughts or thinking quickly. I cant read quickly, I have to look at it and study a simple sentence to be able to repeat it, which would be fine if I wasnt taking speech for a summer college course. Things I normally would be able to talk about for hours no problem I could barely talk about in 3-5min without messing up alot. its SO difficult. Its like me going up there and talking about Ratchet. I could rant a whole journal about him now, but speaking out loud I would probably forget the name of the hummer he transforms into, or Ill have to try really hard to remember the word "medic" (something with helping people... cutting saving.. that stuff) and I'll stare into space with my mouth open for a strait minute or two looking like some dumbass in the middle of my speech and not even notice I'm doing it.  Either way, its not pretty.
I have been in bed eating the occasional crackers or whatever doesnt taste like nasty metal. I stopped taking the hydrocodone so hopefully things get at least a little bit better.

Also, I graduated from highschool June, 3rd, 2012 and started San Jac summer courses June 4th ( -_______- ) and my surgery was on 8th, so it'll be a little while until you start seeing art again. But no fear! I shall return :D
  • Playing: nothing my room was emptied out :(
  • Eating: Anything that doesnt taste like metal
  • Drinking: everything taste like metal but icecubes

I hope that you get to feeling well soon. Ruptured eardrum doesn't sound good.

I had it for 8 years I didnt know it :lol: After swimming I had a lot of pressure or discomfort but never anything like sharp pain. But the last problem I had that made me go to the doctor was that it bled out and it was sharp pain.
As for the surgery itself, It hurt more taking off ALL my jewelry the night before than the procedure did. :)

Interesting.

Taking off all of your jewelry hurt? What kind of jewelry do you have?

All my "sex"bands from hottopics that I've had on for probably 8years (they are not tight, but getting them past my hand is a mission)

It sounds alot weirder than it is. [link] they are "jell" or plastic bracelets. the material is extremely easy to stretch. I dont know its because they are old or what ever else, but mine are only bendable (as in they are flexible, but they cant be pulled)
idk over time having them became just as much my signature as being the pigeon lady :shrug:
