Diving, Life

The Reality

I apologize for the shortness of this post.  Although you are probably grateful as they seem to be long posts all this week.  I didn’t get home until late last night and thus I didn’t get to bed until almost 1pm.  And I went straight to bed.  I did not read like I normally do.  I was sleeping so hard that I had to wake up with my alarm.  I am quite exhausted.  And because I am running behind this may be another double post for the day.

Two things happened last night.  The first was I don’t think I am cut out to be a scuba diver.  I don’t find it a challenge to be overcome.  I just get down right terrified.  It is something that is no longer on my bucket list.  The second thing is I may have done some damage to my left ear.  I still was having problems getting it to equalize but when it did I got a sharp pain and it has just been a dull ache ever since.  Right now I noticed the difference in how my typing sounded.  All this being said my instructor still wants me to take the exams on Sunday.  Which means it will be a scuba reading session at work tonight and then the next few days I will tackle the online material.  It won’t be a lot to get through but some of the tests will be a stinker because they don’t use legit answers at times.  So that may gum things up.

I don’t know if I will even be able to try any diving Sunday with my ear in it’s current condition.  I am tempted to go to the doctor but I don’t have the co-pay so I am gonna have to wing it and hope for the best.  My instructor is going to bring his wife to give me some one on one training Sunday (she is a dive master).  If my ear is not any better I will call and tell him what is going on.  I may show up for the written either way.  Truthfully I don’t care if I make it or not.  I tried and I learned a lot of new skills and I was able to over come some fears.

I will give a breakdown of the day once I get home tonight.  It will be nice to just stay home for once instead of rushing off.  I hope everyone has a great day!  Cheers!
