my allergies are everything tested in this region except for cats, red cedar, and one type of dust (forgot which one). here's a list of what they tested for:

Alternaria alternata (mold)
Aspergillus fumigatus (mold)
Australian pine
Bahia grass
Bermuda grass
Blomia tropicalis (dust mites)
Cat dander
Cladosporium herbarum (mold)
Cockroach
Common ragweed
D. farinae (dust mites)
D. pteronyssinus (dust mites)
Dog dander
Elm
Maple
Mountain cedar
Mouse urine
Nettle
Oak
Penicillium notatum
Rough pigweed
Sheep sorrel
Timothy grass

all of my allergies are considered 'moderate' so none of these substances would cause me to go into anaphylatic shock or anything

I like to think that everyone is allergic to mouse urine.

yeah. he might suggest getting my tonsils out, my adenoids grew back. i had them out a 3 years old. he brought it up as a possibility before. he wants to avoid anesthesia if possible just because i have some high risk factors. i also have a polyp up there somewhere. he also does balloon sinuplasty which is supposed to be really great but the instrument won't fit into my sinuses because they are too narrow from inflammation

So the reason my ears are clogged is because both of my grommets came out. One of them came out long enough ago where there was no hole left to vacuum the middle ear. The other one he could. I'm pretty sure the old one came out about 2 weeks ago and the other one came out on Saturday because that ear was fine until that day.

So he vacuum my left ear which helped just a little. My right ear is staying like it is for now. I'm going to get new tubes in two weeks. He gave me antibiotic drops for the left ear, a methylprednisone 7 day pack and we are going to try a double dose of Flonase. I suggested it because of Bonnie so thanks Bonnie. He doesn't seem to think it will help me but we'll see.

I missed two classes and I am really bummed, they are very interesting right now. Also my hearing is still very diminished. Unless someone is right in front of me they sound like they are mumbling. But prednisone should really help.

I slept a grand total of 13 hours since yesterday... could sleep some more.

No clue what's going on, I have no reason to be this tired.

I hope it won't hurt to try at least. Are you going to have more tubes put in?

my sinuses were also blocked and he was like "your sinuses are totally full - you don't even realize how bad it is. it is affecting your breathing, we need to do something about this"

i guess that's something coming from a guy who looks at clogged sinuses all day.

my sinuses are always clogged but not always completely like that, so it was good he got to see how bad it gets i suppose. i'm so used to it.

also ear tubes are bigger than i thought they were, i got a good look at em this time. the opening is about the diameter of a coffee stirrer

stirrer sure is a funny looking word

Not to keep harping on it but what I found was that once my sinuses became more open, the double dose of Flonase has kept the inflammation down enough to feel somewhat normal. Now I can sleep a typical and amount and function rather than feel insanely tired. I ran out of Flonase for a few days and the symptoms started coming back. This is all I'll be doing for a while before I take a crack at my tonsils and polyp

i don't even feel tired but i assume again i'm just used to it after all of these years
i wake up at least 5 times a night

my doc ordered the prescription generic flonase, it's the same shit ofc but if my insurance will pay for it it'll be much cheaper. not sure if they'll go for it or not, only reason they might is the higher dose. if they do it'll only be 3.30/month. I'll ask my doc to write 3 months and I'll pay the same amount for 3 months. if it works.

i'm staying to go to my next class but i'm not sure how much i'll be able to follow along. it's a small class that is mostly free discussion which is good because everyone will be close to me but bad if i can't hear the discussion of course. i think it'll be ok, i'll just warn people that i can't hear well today

then on my way to my last class i'll get the meds. i dont want to skip the class because it's the one lecture i wanted to be there for the most out of all the topics in the class. but i'm not sure if i'll be able to hear him, even last week was kinda hard to hear and it's worse now. i'm gonna try probably.

There's a lot you can get used to and that's kind of amazing. I prefer the otc stuff even though it's expensive because of the lack of after taste

Playing Saints Row with a woman character made that game so much weirder and better.

Real talk I thought the same thing about charmbag. I think we talked about silent hill 3 or something and it cemented some thought that netphorians belong in video games

Holy F the sound design in those games; such intricate, beautiful dissonance

There's like a 15-20 minute section where all you do is go down, down, down. And yes you end up in a graveyard where your own is freshly dug and to progress you have to, yep, jump in

The whole atmosphere of the game is so singular, hellish, I still have nightmares sometimes that are like the "other world" all chainlinked, rusty, decayed, wet, cold

Labelle as the character would run everywhere in the misty and run down world but always be prepared to defend herself from roaming monsters because that's just labelle
