Like the rest of my body, my ears hate me. I was born legally deaf with ears that had to be operated on to save my hearing. I had thousands of dollars worth of surgery, and later had tubes put in. I can hear fine today, but it seems that my ears are causing me more trouble. I always assumed that everyone had holes in their eardrums. I always assumed that everyone else had air go in and out of their ears as they breathed heavily. I thought everyone had water in their ears after swimming that look hours to leak back out. Apparently I was wrong. I've been living this way for 11 years (I'm 15 now). In that whole time I've had one minor ear infection, no pain, no irritation, no problems whatsoever. The friends who found this condition out want me to report it to my parents and doctors. Fixing this 'problem' probably will involve thousands of dollars of surgery (again) that I don't feel I need. Should I tell someone? Thanks!
