Earwax. Unless there are some freaks in society who don't have the properly formed gene that makes the body produce earwax, we've all got it.

So, I'm doin' a routine cleanin', no big whoop, using a q-tip dealie.

And then next thing ya know my hearing's mostly gone from my left ear.

It's like I pushed wax deeper in to clog the ear canal? Yeah, probably.

I've never had this happen before for this long of a period of time (about 4 hours now.)

I'm impatient and not being able to properly listen to music is really freakin' me out.

Now I'm reading about never inserting a q-tip into the ear canal. Oh great, so I may have made it worse.

In another window I'm reading about solutions to this... I've got a feeling it'll be all clear within a day or two at the most. Last thing I wanna do is go to a rip off artist a.k.a. a doctor to fix this.

Might be an easy solution but then again, I was q-tipping so far in there, I swear I was hittin' brain so this could be a problem.

Mostly -- I'm worried that I can't listen to music tonight! Or watch a movie. This bites.

UPDATE 11:47 p.m. -- I love thinking the worst 'cause when it's not the worst, there's a nice feeling of relief. Seems I mildly panicked for hours over nothing. Tried baking soda & water, two times and all clear!
