It's a long story.
You've been warned.
Last fall I noticed that I was having a little difficulty hearing. Especially if there was any background noise. I usually just blamed it on my surroundings... the kids were loud- equipment running outside- the radio was to loud. etc.
Until I was at a meeting for work. One hundred women in an auditorium, and I couldn't hear the person sitting right next to me.
Yup. I can't hear.
So, when I was at the local herb shop a couple of months ago picking up some "Focus Attention Powder"* for William, I grabbed four ear candles. I had heard other people swear by them, and hey, I'm only 35- I am way to young to be losing my hearing!
Those ear candles have been in my bathroom drawer until last weekend when my cousin in-law and I were talking about it, and she knew how to use them.
She did the dirty deed on Sunday afternoon. And I performed the task on Ryan's ears this week.
Not only can I not tell any difference in my hearing, (neither can any one else) I've felt like I was getting an ear infection all week. I don't think I'll be doing that again.
Ryan, on the other hand feels fine.
*The "Focus Attention Powder" didn't seem to work either. Maybe because I forgot to give it?
