Five-Hundred Word Challenge 676: Ear Pain

Ear pain is a wonderful thing that I’d suggest not going for, no matter how in vogue it may seem. I’ve had a fun few days and some of that has involved working and pushing through, and now I continue to wait for it to pass. Might’ve gone too hard on the cleaning and all that.

Still, I stubbornly persist in my resistance of what this fun experience is like and continue on my business like I never had this happen, which might be a good thing or a bad thing. Should probably rest. Won’t though. Too stubborn. Gotta keep going and all that jazz.

So I sit here and listen to the exacerbated ringing and hope to some sort of hoping thing that I can keep on going and that the pain will pass away sooner rather than alter, but of course these are things that take time and time is what I have at the moment.

Well, I always have time, but so does everyone, so… anyway…

Pain; it is a thing. It is a thing that right now I am experiencing whilst the drum of my ear repairs itself. Such is the way that things go sometimes and such is the thing that I currently have to deal with. Probably shouldn’t have had coffee this morning and perhaps that has exacerbated the ringing, but you win some, you lose some. Besides which, it’s kind of a change form the tinnitus and I’m sure that I can make some sort of rhythm out of it if I tried, so maybe that’s a plus. Depends on your point of view, really.

Right now, however, I don’t want to be writing a rhythm to the ringing. I want to be writing, which I am doing, so I guess that also is a plus, depending on your point of view.

Maybe instead of all of this I should just be doing other stuff. There are photos that need processing, but those will soon be processed anyway. Not right now, but a bit later. Then I will have more photos of which I can show to the people that I want to show, and then they shall be seen and something will have been accomplished. Whatever that thing might be is yet to be known, but know this: it shall be.

So anyway, back to complaining about pain, or something. Pain hurts and that isn’t fun, but sometimes you need a bit of hurt in order to be able to keep on going with things. Maybe not this kind of pain as this is one that stops me from doing stuff, albeit momentarily. Still, so long as I can keep on going, I am happy, though I should probably be resting more than I currently am. I should probably be lying down and doing nothing, but I feel I’d rather be productive in getting other things done, so today stubbornness wins out over everything else.

At least, until it no longer does.

Interesting springboard as it kind of led somewhere, but only kind of.

A bit lacking in quality, but I think I got something across.

Written at home.
