Is it ok to that... I like bugs to fly in my ears so I can poke them out?
Years ago, when I was doing yardwork, I had a few gnats fly into my ear and stay there. I tried using a tissue, q-tip, etc, but only seemed to push them in more, buzzing and buzzing. Thing was, I also liked the feeling, the scratching and poking around in there, and eventual crawling out of the gnats on their own.
Fast-forward to now. Whenever I do yardwork, I know where gnats and other tiny, flying bugs are, push my hair behind my ears (to give them a straight shot), and walk around those areas until whatever it is flies into my ear or ears, just so I can dig them out with anything pointy. Q-tips with no cotton on the end, chop sticks, drill bits, wooden matches, drywall screws.. Anything to poke into my ears and either get the bugs out, or push them back further and into my eardrum. Still love the sound of the buzzing in there, even if I'm jabbing so much my inner ear bleeds. Sometimes, that's the goal: flying bugs and blood in there.
If this keep up, or I start using sharper, more dangerous items, like screwdrivers or a paring knife (thought about that one..what a rush that would be!), I'm afraid of permanent damage. Is it ok that I keep doing this?
