Post Whatever You Are Thinking At This Very Moment

I used to have those same red eyes in the mornings, till the point I thought this was a picture of me, so I looked at it :LOL:. I had to use eyedrops all the time. It's food related. Plus the obvious allergenes (milk, gluten, eggs and meat) cut potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants and chili peppers (poisonous nightshades) for a while. In 15 days your eyes will be ok, I promess. It took me years to realize it.
For me it's bread. Potatoes too possibly

baaaaddddd. my ear was really hurting today. it makes no sense because everything on that side hurts. the roof of my mouth, tongue, gums, throat, neck, ear. surely a sinus infection wouldnt last this long....
I was feeling a little like this the past two weeks. It was associated with my teeth or potential cavities (my estimate) from eating a little more sweets and drinking too many citrus based drinks than I should have (orange juice, grapefruit juice, lemonade, limeade). Once in a while this does come. I would literally put a medium-sized dab of neosporin (antibiotic) on the inflammation (the gums, teeth) and spread it around where the pain was felt on the right upper side. Did not do much. I also used salt and put it directly on the inflammation and gargled with water. I even used an aspirin mixed in a little water and put it directly on the inflammation/pain to numb it. It helped somewhat. But I finally decided to use water, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and gargled it for about a minute or less (including the back of the throat avoiding swallowing). I did this once a day for a couple of days. The inflammation may have been an infection but gargling the compound solution seemed to have helped eliminate the inflammation and pain. The following day it had finally disappeared. Very slight to zero irritation and pain now. I just try to avoid sweets and anything acidic (citrus based juices). Citrus based drinks are definitely not recommended at this time (dry throat, irritated throat, etc.). I do get pain on that same side from time to time but not very often. But it can trigger migraines sometimes as the throbbing pain goes directly to my brain. Everything is often connected as it's also allergy related (right ear, nasal passages, roof of mouth, gums, throat, etc.). If phlegm is a problem, definitely avoid milk or dairy products. Of course I recommend you do your own research. I don't do doctors either but I hope this helps.

It's nice to simply be bored for a change. I don't feel like reading an ebook, or eating, or watching TV, or writing my memoir, or writing morning pages, or cleaning. It's too late to go for a walk, though the air didn't smell like a chemical soup earlier today. I guess I'll read The Daily Mail online.

oh i could never do that. i only eat same day bread. also, toast and peanut butter is yuck.
I went to a dollar store today and as I walked home, I could feel a new layer of fat jiggling at my waistline from the toast and peanut butter I've eaten over the past week.

thanks for that. im hoping it's just an infection. but it's weird how it hurts in so many different places, but that even in the absence of all other soreness there's still always this one little spot, which i cant tell if it's in my throat or the roof of my mouth that is persistently sore, a pin prick sized spot. i dont get migraines or anything like that, and i can definitely live with the problem, it's just worrying as to what it might be. today for a while it felt like i had something stuck at the back of my throat but now that feelings gone. yesterday my nose was burning a bit and a tiny bit runny (i never get a runny nose even with a full blown cold), so that was hopegiving that it might just be something related to the sinuses. i might take your advice and try to gargle with salt.

@rifke I think the reason we haven't been writing our memoirs is that we haven't been concentrating on doing it, for at least an hour each day, to the exclusion of all distractions. Pain is very distracting. Mine is gone, at the moment. If I feel like this in the morning, I'm planning to focus on writing my memoir for at least an hour. How distracting is the pain in your throat?

not distracting at all. in fact, on days off like today i rarely even notice it. but when i go to work it starts hurting again. maybe it has to do with straining to make myself heard through all the plexiglass surrounding us, not to mention the ear buds in the ears of all the customers which they refuse to take out, or only take out after they see you mouthing words at them--like "hello, im sorry, yes i did attempt to use spoken words to interact with you, my mistake, go back to existing in your only little solipsistic world now, if i have any further questions ill just make exaggerated miming gestures at you".

but the real thing keeping me from writing is that im exhausted all the time from work, and then when i come home i feel the need for some instant gratification to make up for all the hell i put up with so i watch things on youtube or listen to music or eat cake and in that way never get any writing done. it would be so much easier if i didnt have to work. around december my hours should be going down so ill start writing more seriously then.
