I recently (last week) got an ear infection. I don’t know if it was a super bad one or not as I had never had one before… All I know was that I was in excruciating pain. I imagined it as a red-hot knife digging into my skull. My left ear just really hated me.
Within three days, the pain had mostly left. I was fine to go to school on Monday. A few momentary pains spiked, but other than that, all pain was gone.
I was left with a head full of fluff.
Even now, seven days later, my left ear still does not receive sound as well as it did before this infection. I am fairly sure something is swollen in my ear, as the pain medication that I took reduced swelling and took the fluff with it.
I named this variant of pain ‘Stiletto.’
I do that sometimes, naming various pains… I once had a sinus infection and named that pain Ivory. Hunger pains are called Beast.
