Well, I got my stripe! The two big clear spots are connected!
One side/edge of my tongue looks good, the other looks better, but still pretty gunky. There are small patches of clear all over and the best part is that the yucky taste of it is gone!
My ear feels so..."light". Light and cool and open and just "breezy". I'm pretty sure my eardrum is "punctured" or "ruptured" or whatever the term is for a spontaneous sort of opening. It feels as if I could breath through that ear. I've never felt anything like it.
Still some exaggerated buzzing at the 8:00 position, but I think the buzzing I hear with my head in other positions, as I roll it around, is all coming from there. That second, higher-pitched buzzing is gone.
A little bit of a runny nose and some stuff coming loose from way, WAY back on my tongue is making me cough a little bit.
Also, I hadn't realized that my tongue had been swollen this whole time, because it isn't now and that's different. It wasn't swollen bad, like when this all first started, the night of the extractions which was a week ago, but it was certainly a little bit swollen because it isn't now and that's different than when I started with the DE.
It's 21:48 and I'm knackered. I'm going to mix up some more DE paste, put a bunch in my mouth, spread it all over and go to bed.
If I can remember, I'm going to do a spit test in the morning and see how that looks. So, that's it for tonight, we'll see what's what in the morning.
