Ghost Hunting and Ear Infections


Man, I’m pretty bummed today. I was supposed to go ghost hunting at a local cemetery with a paranormal investigation group, but yesterday my earache turned into a raging ear infection and between the ear pain and the nausea from the antibiotics, I had to choose to stay home and rest. I guess there will likely be other opportunities, but still wish I could have gone.

Among other news, my first SSDI payment got messed up and didn’t come. Took me two days and multiple phone calls to multiple agencies to get it solved and will hopefully get my payment within the next couple weeks. I had a huge meltdown over the whole situation Thursday, which probably didn’t help my immune system and may have contributed to my current infection. I can’t help but notice that my already weak immune system takes a nosedive when I’m stressed or upset.

Even thinking about it now makes me mad lol. The worst part was that the automated phone answering systems would NOT let me talk to a live person for the longest time! Ugh. It was like a labyrinth to find my way through to talk to a living, breathing human. I realize this post is pretty negative and maybe a bit whiny lol, but that’s where I’m at today. Hope you are all feeling better than I am at the moment!

  1. Maranda, I’m so sorry you are feeling so under the weather. I remember that ear infection I had nearly a month ago, wicked sucker. I was drained from it. Such a shame that you weren’t able to go on the paranormal hunt. I would have loved to have done that myself.
    Once your SSDI gets straightened out, you shouldn’t have any future problems with it. Mine was the same the first check around. It sucks to have to wait for something that is rightfully yours, to begin with, I know.
    Try to rest as much as you can to get rid of the ear infection. I do hope you feel better real soon! 😘 (((Hugs)))

  2. Oh no, I’m sorry about the ear infection from hell. There’ll be other ghost hunts, but it’s a shame to miss out. I hope it clears up soon.
    I hope the SSDI payments are sorted now so the payment comes through as expected in the next few weeks. Sounds like a lot of extra hassle and stress you could do without. I find stress does no favours for my immune system or symptoms either. Rest, try to de-stress & take good care of yourself, Maranda  ♥

  3. I hope you feel better soon. I find stress, and especially meltdowns, leave me with infections too. For me it’s always my sinuses that get hit. I hope your ear infection heals and your payment arrives.
