My Kingdom for some antibiotic eardrops!!
I went to the clinic the day after Christmas, I was very very sick.
I had strep throat and a very bad middle ear infection. Because it was the middle ear, the NP said it would do no good to give me antibiotic ear drops and told me to buy some sweet oil.
Have they seen the price of sweet oil lately??
Here I am, 2 weeks later, and my ear is still badly infected and aching.
I took all of the clindimycin antibiotics I was given for the strep. But it didnt help my ear at all, as I was told it would.
Well anyway.
Ear still hurts, still drains so badly at night that I cant lay on it and wake up in the morning with disgusting crusties all around my ear.
But the doctors know best I suppose.

I am in desperate need of a new pair of glasses. I ordered my last pair over a year ago online and have been very satisfied with them.
Until recently, when it appears the coating is beginning to come off, making them look scratched, which they arent, and very difficult to see out of. I am always cleaning them, to no avail.
So, I ordered a pair, and they were not a good fit or look, I didnt care for the frames.
Sent those back, ordered another pair, got them and they were lopsided on my face.
So, after having seen the eye doctor I ordered yet another pair, with my new prescription and I couldnt believe my eyes.
I mean, My eyes couldnt believe what they were seeing, or not seeing, as I couldnt see a dang thing!
I thought the prescription seemed a little iffy.
I know my eyes had not changed that much in a year.
So, I am going to just have to make an appointment elsewhere and see what rabbit this one pulls out of his hat!!
Until then, I am stuck.
Wish we had more options in my area.

    Oh you poor soul. I can't believe they can't do anything about the ear problem. You might want to Google it- My son had tons of middle ear infections. Amoxicillin kid. LOL We finally had to have tubes put in his ears- three times. Good luck!
