How Did an Octopus Get in My Head?

  • Posted on February 19, 2009 at 10:06 pm

Lately, my ear has felt clogged and congested, a symptom I just can’t seem to shake from when I jumped from cold to flu and back to cold. I finally made an appointment with an Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor.  I went to the appointment, and thirty minutes later I had a referral for a CT Scan of my sinuses. All I wanted was some antibiotics to make my ear better, but instead I got a doom and gloom diagnosis of  possible sinusitis and a deviated septum.

I had the CT scan yesterday, and thank GOD they gave me the CD with the images on it to take with me. Thanks to google, Dr. House and Jeopardy, I was able to make my own diagnosis. According to the pictures, I have:

  • A giant face-eating tumor
  • A baby octopus living inside my head
  • A severely cracked and dented skull

It’s not multiple choice. I’ve got all three. See?

I’m going to say it right now: I refuse to leave the house with a face bandage on. I just won’t do it.
