Ear infection. Pain started while waiting for my flight back from El Paso (where I had teacher training). Lesson plans not done for this week and all I want to do is stay on the couch and whine like a baby. For me, this is the worst pain. I had a lot of ear issues as I grew up to the point that I'd call the doc, tell him I was getting an infection and he'd call the prescription in even if it was a few days before I could get to his office.
