Is the whole wide world talkin' about me?
You know how when you get a little ringing in your ear and you think (or say), "Oh! Someone's talking about me!" And then it goes away and you continue on with whatever you were doing and don't give it another thought?
It's not going away. My ears keep ringing. The whole freakin' world must be talking about me or someone's on a continuous loop or the record is skipping! Heh, that's what we used to say back in the day.
All joking aside, it's starting to drive me nuts. It's been an on and off thing over the past several weeks. Mostly on, usually tolerable; maybe a slight increase from time-to-time, but then it would dissipate; sometimes I wouldn't "hear" it or notice it at all. Last night, it got kind of loud. I slept okay, even got up and went to the bathroom once (maybe even twice) and don't recall a problem. It was there right away when I woke up, though, even before I got out of bed. It hasn't gotten any better, nor any worse, but it's constant and it's piercing and it is definitely starting to drive me nuts.
So, I'm going to the doc this afternoon to have them check it out.
Meanwhile, my car was in the shop and I was home-bound yesterday. It had been making a grinding, roaring sound; turns out it needed a new wheel bearing. Seemed like a good time to finish and file the taxes. A little YIPPEE, please, they are done!
