Things That Never Bothered Me Before

A few years after breaking both my legs, I realized that I needed to exercise a lot more because I was getting stiff.  So about a year and half ago I started swimming.  I try to go three nights a week.  I swam as a kid; but after college, I lost interest.  Now I need the exercise and swimming is easiest on my legs.

Anyway, after nearly 20 years of no  regular swimming,  I started back.  Last week, I got my first case of swimmer’s ear in over 40 years.  I let it get worse and finally after two sleepless nights, I went to Doc-In-A-Box.

I’m not much about conveying pain, so the PA who saw me was more concerned about my weight and blood pressure.  My BP is high; but the ear pain was pushing it higher.  They ran a bunch of tests; most of which told me what I already knew – I need to drp some weight.  I got a prescription for the ear.  A week later, the ear still hurts – but at least I am sleeping.
