The one time I had an ear infection my Mum took me to the doctor. This was a big deal because she only took us if we asked her, and this time I didn't ask, I was just curled up on the sofa not eating or drinking. So painful
Those cage things sound horrible! I actually thought you and your mum must have both mis=remembered or something, until Starla posted, it just sounded too awful
Controlling means that he cared though. Mine just kicked me out.
