After 2 weeks we hit the water again and it felt great. Catching 4ft waves that just kept rolling in and in the meantime clear our heads. In the afternoon though we felt that our ear was starting to hurt. We didn’t pay much attention to it as it just could be something small. But it got worse and now we can officially say that we have an ear-infection. The pain we felt yesterday night was almost unbearable and we definitely reached the limit of our pain boundary (anyone who ever had an ear-infection knows the helplessness you experience when having an ear-ache).
And this set us back, we are on antibiotics again but most challenging is the fact that we have to be patient again. Again out of the water and just wait until it gets better. We have decided that we really can’t help what is going on except that we need to treat ourselves well. We are eating loads of fruits & veggies, drink water and sleep and hope we get better soon. But most important, we decided not to dwell on feeling sorry for ourselves, taking those steps down the negativity ladder. Nope, we will just make sure we get better and spend our time volunteering for the Ombak Bali Surf Film Festival and working on a new amazing little project. Being patient is definitely not our strongest quality, especially when we are challenged like this. But we are on this magical island with a lot of things to do so we are going to make sure we get healthy again so we can get back out there.
