I have an infection in my cartilage piercing. Doesn’t hurt so much anymore, but I know it’s there and it’s swollen and it’s REALLY THROWING MY GROOVE OFF. I’m keeping it well medicated, but I just want it to go away :'(((((((((
I would take the earring out, but it hurts like the dickens to touch it and the back is hard to pry off. AHH. I have a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday, but that’s not for 5 more days. I kinda just want it to heal on its own rather than spend money to have a doctor say “YEP, IT’S INFECTED!”, but that just feels a little stupid.
I’m feeling……..not great. I looked at myself in the mirror yesterday and felt myself begin to cry. Then I mentally berated myself to stop my stupidity. My head and emotions are all out of whack, man. I want to start running daily, but I’m afraid to do so until my ear gets better. JUST HEAL, EAR. I’ve had the dang piercing for 5 months now, why is it acting up all of a sudden??
If anyone has suggestions or remedies, please let me know! I would great appreciate it.
Sorry again for the lack of quality posts. I promise to give myself a kick in the pants and do something productive with this blog.
Thanks for reading,
