    I wish I remember what the name of this prescription medicine was?! I was 22 and had the worst ear infection. This was probably the third time I received an ear infection after high school. It was a horrible pain inside my ears. I tried using hydrogen peroxide to clean out my ears, but that didn't help. The pain was so unbearable, that I had to beg to leave work to see a doctor right away. My boss was ticked off about that request.

    Anyways, went to the doctor, and was diagnose with an ear infection. She said that my ear drums were swollen and red. They put me on antibiotics for a week or so. The pain was still intense and grew worser by the day. So next thing, I they gave me was an over the counter medicine. Yeah, you know the kind of liquid you have to shoot it up your nose. (yuck!) Very bitter! That seems to be working very well.

    After that, the pain was gone, but I kept on hearing bubbles popping when clearing my throat. I thought it was no big deal but my ears kept on clogging up with the bubble noise for a long time. So third time back to the doctor, this time everything looks fine. But the bubbles were clogging up in my head like bubble wraps popping? So they prescriped me a very powerful ear drops that I was suppose to take for a few days or week? Must of had acid in it, because it hurts my head sooo bad that my performance at work was slowed down by 20%.  It was just a few small drops like the directions said. So the next day, my head was still in pain. Trying to listen to the doctors order, I tried a few drops again. And this time my head felt like someone had stabbed a butcher knife through my brain from right to left. It was so bad, that I finally left work in the middle of the day. I was sooo frustrated, that I threw the bottle away and slept the entire day.

    Next day, my head was a little better, not to mention that it was also my birthday. And what happened next was uncalled for! They wanted me fired because I was skipping and slowing down production at work for that month. Oh just grrreat! After months of finding a job with no success, I had to go back to waitressing and later on to working at a nail salon. It was very obvious that I can stay busy and get the job done, but I was 3 times slower at getting the job done. Hmm....sounds familiar? So I really don't understand what it was in that prescription medine that had decreased my ability to work or heck think quick? If anyone knows how I can improved myself other than practice doing the job faster, please let me know! I am losing a lot more than a job, but my brain cells slow rate!
