Eardrum- burst

December 21, 2008

So this really shows you, don’t take your health for granted.

I had plans to be skiing in Andorra right now, to spend Christmas climbing….but the lovely bacteria now installed in my left tonsil and ear had other plans….

I woke up last Monday with an excruciating pain in my left ear.

Exhibit A: Ear


Veredict: Burst Eardrum.

Now, for those of you that immediatly go into thoughts of scuba diving, bombs exploding or someone blatantly punching my ear let me clear this up-I didnt do anything!! It burst thanks to the bacteria in my tonsil, yikes. I had no clue this was even possible. I am beyond happy that this isn’t serious and that i am actually really lucky in life in excellent health.

So, fully loaded with antibiotics, I am now healing, planning for the upcoming trip, cooking and reading my favorite blogs.

I love food blogs for cooking ideas. Here are some links for your inspiration:

www.katheats.com Goddess of creating fun healthy meals and my personal fave blog.

www.fitnessista.com Super fitness instructor, always funny.

http://sweeteatsny.com I come here to drool over Candle Cafe meals and waffle breakfasts.

www.vegandad.blogspot.com Best fake meat recipes in the planet.

http://carrotsncake.com/ Balancing health and treats in Boston.

and of course…I also visit climbing sites:

www.8a.nu Guilty pleasure of climbing news and ranking….

http://coletteloc.com Colette’s climbing blog, super strong chick.

http://www.daniandrada.blogspot.com Spanish bolting and climbing maquina.

http://www.ethanpringle.com Uber-Strong, vegan, cute.

So just in case you are confined to your bed, biting your nails, wishing to climb and run like me, or simply sitting at your desk procrastinating…i think i left you with enough entertainment.

and if you wanted climbing pictures…fine fine…here is the REAL DEAL
