I WILL Wear Pierced Earrings Again!
The first time my ears were pierced was when a group of us airwomen decided to pierce each others ears with regular needles. I can't remember any details, except that the holes grew shut, and it wasn't until my late 30s that I had my ears pierced again--this time by a professional. I managed to keep the holes open, often drawing blood as I tried to insert an earring. Nobody told me that I should always keep post earrings in them, and I wasn't smart enough to see the obvious. Work and extra curricular activities involved my dressing up, so I wore earrings most days. Then I semi retired. Consequently, I wasn't wearing my earrings almost daily, and the holes grew shut. Having collected quite a few earrings, I could not bear to not wear them again. Consequently, 1 1/2 years ago, I had my ears pierced professionally, but they bled a lot especially the one on the side on which I slept. I let them grow shut again. Last month I had them pierced again. The left ear is doing well, but the right post came out last week. So, today I had the right ear pierced again and another post inserted. I am really wondering it I will ever be able to wear some of my earrings again!
