I Was Only Supposed to Blow the Bloody Doors Off!

You know that scene at the end of The Italian Job? Well of course you do, everyone does. The lorry is balanced on the edge of a cliff and there’s no way of getting the gold off without unbalancing it and sending them all to their deaths. Well that seems like my life at the moment. I had, as you will know if you’ve been paying attention, a nasty rash right in the middle of my face. It was sore and itchy and it made me look as if I’d been mugged. Well, I solved that problem, or so I thought; I got a cream from the doctor and after 3 or 4 weeks it was almost clear. So I stopped using it. In the meantime my ears got blocked and I was having to lip read to understand what anyone was saying. Drops did not cut it, and the GP won’t syringe. So we bought a syringing kit online and used it. Success! Well, sort of: one ear got unblocked and the other improved. But in the meantime the rash has flared up again.

Maybe I should have just blown the bloody doors off…

  1. Sorry to hear about the rash, again: back to the cream, I guess? It’s annoying that GP practices don’t syringe ears any more: I’ve had mine done a couple of times in the past, and it was always successful, but latterly, the nurses were bemoaning the fact that they had to stop doing it and go over to using a sort of trickle device which they said was neither use nor ornament……. I’ve been using olive oil recently in one of my ears, and it seems to help. Oh, and it was a coach in The Italian Job, not a lorry: sorry! 😉 Cheers, Jon.

  2. My ears often ‘pop’, and can take a few days to ‘unpop’. Not sure I would use a home kit in case I buggered up my ear, but if it happens again and doesn’t ‘unpop’, I might go to a private place that operates out of the Dereham Cottage Hospital.
    Best wishes, Pete.
