My bloody ear has blocked up again. This is becoming a regular thing now - is that the way my life is going? Plagued by middle aged ailments and ridiculous visits to the surgery to see the nurse? It has happened three times in as many months...and it's so infuriating. My ear itches - I poke it (from the outside only) and then - lo and behold - it blocks and I go deaf on one side. Janet (the practise nurse) did say that I have a narrow ear canal on that side the last time I went to see her - I suppose I must just accept that a monthly visit to the surgery to be syringed is just going to be part of my life from now on. Next stop is support tights, varicose veins - etc etc etc. Can somebody just shoot me now!!!!
