Scottish myth and folklore

The Ghillie Dhu or Gille Dubh is a faerie, a guardian spirit of the trees. He is kind to children, but generally wild and shy. Said to be dark haired, he is described as clothed in leaves and moss.. He especially likes birch trees, and is most active at night. In lore, this solitary spirit is said to reside primarily near Gairloch and Loch a Druing.

rebolog/like if your one of those “special” kids who have had more ear infections, ear aches, clogged ears, sinus infections and sinusitis or have had tubes put in your ears more times than you care to remember

i’m one of those people and i’m currently enduring a sinus infection as i type this, my eyes feel like they’re going to pop out of my head or my head is going to explode, or maybe both

i have been to the E.N.T more times in my short 22 years than most people will in their lifetime

it’s pretty bad when the check in lady at the ENT saw me and went “I was just wondering about you”

that means i’ve been there ONE too many times and i’m sick of it!

and all this crap ties back into my cancer history

not sure if i’m ranting or what, i guess i just want to know i’m not the only person who has been to the ENT more times than i’ve seen a primary care doctor

Meniere's disease.

Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that causes spontaneous episodes of vertigo — a sensation of a spinning motion — along with fluctuating hearing loss, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and sometimes a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear. In most cases, Meniere’s disease affects only one ear.

People in their 40s and 50s are more likely than people in other age groups to develop Meniere’s disease, but it can occur in anyone, even children.

Although Meniere’s disease is considered a chronic condition, there are various treatment strategies that can help relieve symptoms and minimize the disease’s long-term impact on your life.
