This is pretty new to me. My ear was overwhelmed by working on music for about nine days straight. Which is just part of the problem. I’ve also have these sinus issues during the spring season. I didn’t know it was spring yet. One day it’s 70 degrees and the next it’s maybe 30 and snowing. Anyway, I woke up one morning and I could barely hear anything from my right ear. I stood up and literally had to sit down. Then began sneezing like crazy. I freaked out, I haven’t been sick since 2019. I’ve popped some medication and things progressed. Track record resumes…….
I’ve decided to work on my newest project. This is the hardest I’ve worked on a project. Not saying that I haven’t worked hard on the previous efforts. I’m learning there’s a difference between the artist and producer in me. There’s about seven different personalities in between. This project is definitely coming from the artist side. As time went on, I’ve noticed my left ear clogging on me. The last time I felt this sensation was after being in the front row of an Usher concert. These days you’ll find me in a suite or a level upstairs. The next day my right ear and dizziness returned.
I went to the doctor and I was right. Allergies and an ear infection. So, I decided to take a few days away from any projects and go to work. While, high on medication, I was baked. I work super part time and it’s definitely a winner. I’m still sticking to never going back to a 9-5. Thank goodness for family businesses. Plus, I’m falling in love more and more learning the mortuary business. From behind the scenes to the actual service. It was a little hard for me to hear individuals at first. Then, I felt it easing up on me. The next day both ears were functioning about 80%. As I’m writing this, we’re at a good 90.
No more loud music blasting through headphones. I’m on a low to medium level. I was threatened with surgery. That made me turn the volume down a lot. I say the learning experience was definitely worth it. However, it will NOT happen again.
