Oh my god, my ears are still paining me

I have some kind of ear infection or sinus infection. Finally broke down and scheduled an appointment with my doctor. I have punishingly bad health insurance, which means I need to pay out of pocket for almost everything, but sometimes you just got to see the doctor. There’s a chance the infection is viral, which means no one can do anything, but I feel like at some point you get sick enough that you need to at least confirm that there’s nothing you can do.

This pain has been extremely annoying and has hampered my enjoyment of life for some days, but it is not debilitating. However, it comes on the heels of the week I lost to my neck strain injury! What is this business! Sheesh, is this what getting old feels like?
