Quilted teapot and bee

I wonder...

Maybe I've been inspired to quilt teapots and bees
because of the noise in my ears...
My ears have been not only ringing
but sounding like the tea kettle whistling.

It gets so loud at night I can't sleep.

I'm sorry to hear of the inner ear trouble...you are likely to find helpful information if you look up the Vestibular Disorders Association and another very helpful site is Dizziness and Balance written by Timothy C. Hain, M.D. of Chicago, Illinois. He is the author of many of the circulars used by the VDA and is clearly a leader in this field.

Lovely handwork as always! Best to you.

ahahha I LOVE THESE !

absolutely love them

I am always thinking about this ringing you described and wondering how that feels - how it must be driving you nutty batty wacko

I hope it stops...its probably years of harley engine beating on your poor ears !

okay that was nice to say ;)

I DO hope it gets better - or that the water boils out of the teakettle in your ears and STOPS whistling at you.

xo- S.

Cat said...

Thank you to everyone for your comments and care! You are all so terrific! I made a doctor appointment.

I'll check out that site Jeannette, thanks.

And yes, Dear S, that noisy ole Harley could have something to do with it :) Oh the price we pay when we get old for having fun when we're young.

Thanks for the prayers!

I love your teapot and bees. My husband has had ringing in the ears for about 12 years. It is called Tinitus. He wears hearing maskers, (they look like hearing aids) they edmit a white noise that blocks the ring. He went thru the Tinitus Clinic at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.

I have to have something on the radio or TV to go to sleep. I have bad sinus and the ringing started when I was in my early thirties. It gets really loud when I have any infection or blockage. It drives me nuts at times, so I do understand. It never stops....I hear good, but I figure that it will not stay that way as I age.
I am glad you are going to the Dr.
Hugs Mary...love your Bee and Teapot.
