Today, I have an ear infection. The pain from it radiates from my ear all the way down the left side of my face, so my doctor prescribed me something that makes half of my face numb and pretty much unusable. Tomorrow, I have to give a presentation on strokes for my med class. Go figure. FML

Maybe you'll get extra points for having a life-like presentation! :P

What a stroke of bad luck, OP. I'm willing to lend you an ear here for all your pains and greivances. I'm not infect qualified to tell you any medical advice, but I can sympathise for your problems at face value. I hope this doesn't sound lame to you, but I feel for you, OP. Chin up, stiff upper lip, and all that, if you can.

I could totally see this person posting another FML tomorrow about how she got a zero on the presentation and got kicked out of class because the teacher thought she was mocking people who have had strokes. That would ALMOST suck as much as Kristin Stewart's acting.

Sparkling fairies are not vampires Knowing this could save you money at the box office.

Not everyone who has a stroke has a problem with their appearance. Sometimes the paralyzation doesn't occur. I don't mean to sound cocky, but I'm living proof.

I know, but it is a common side effect and thus why it would be seen as a mockery of people who have had strokes. And I hope you are now healthy and recovered and will continue to be so

Incorporate an element of role play into your presentation ^_^

You should just pretend to have a stroke in class. Since half your face probably looks like you have downs it would be perfect! You would get extra days to work on your project and free ride in an ambulance!

"Free ride"? I don't think you've been in an ambulance before... And a stroke is no joking matter...

Just pay a fee of $1000 and get a ride in an ambulance for free!

$1000.00? Heck, I will take that over the 1500.00 we pay here.

You pay for ambulances? They're free here.

An ambulance is never free... Your insurance pays for it or you have to. They bill you later.

Here an ambulance ride WITH insurance will get you a $5,000 bill. This is hands down the stupidest comment I've ever seen on here.

Free here in Australia. I'd rather it be funded by our taxes than have to worry about money during an emergency.

You should know child, nothing is EVER free. You probably think Canada has "free" health care too.

Well in Canada we don't have to pay, well we pay for it in our taxes so technically we do but it's not billed to us

Well I can tell you all in Ireland you are totally exempt from any fee if you have a medical card. I stayed in A&E for five days a while back and when leaving not a euro was demanded. Sometimes being born with a disability really has its good things, I wouldn't have that card without my disability.

41, sure we pay for ambulance cover through health insurance, but I'd rather pay a sum every month (and know that I can be covered for private hospitals, ambulances etc) then get billed $500 in one hit. It's technically not free but is "covered".

30 healthcare including ambulances is free at the point of use in some countries. You pay for it through taxes.

Okay you're all just restating what I said. whether its an ambulance or "free" health care you're still paying for it. You all keep saying well technically it not free because you pay for it in taxes.. Uh reread my comment because that's exactly what I said. You may not pay for it at the time but your taxes do pay for it and everyone else's. I'd prefer to just pay for me myself and I instead of everyone in the country. But that's just me. Moral of the story is nothing's ever free which is what some people thought here.

Maybe you can talk to the professor and reschedule? If not then you can make the best of the situation and make it a part of the presentation. Good luck OP

Can't OP simply stop taking the medication? FDR (I think) once gave a speech with a gunshot wound. I think an ear infection would be more than manageable.

What a stroke of bad luck, OP. I'm willing to lend you an ear here for all your pains and greivances.

Well, he pretty much got them all!

like OP, I'm left speechless...

^you people forgot to clean some of the poop from your lips.

You sir, are definitely my favorite commenter on FML._.

Fake a stroke in class

And get suspended...

Lmfao ! Good with that. Ear aches are so painful :|! Feel better .

Good luck.

The odds are on your side with this one. Hopefully it doesn't affect your speech

#9, it wouldn't matter, most students just hear Charlie Brown's teacher anyways -- wah, wah, wah, wah-wah, wah.

The presentation is going to be one sided.

You're going to get extra points for bringing in props, and making the topic come to life. You should worry if, for the next project, you get assigned erectile dysfunction or hemorrhoids.

...or priapism. :(
