According to Katie Holly, in her SELF column, she woke up woke up with a cockroach in her ear that horrifyingly tortured her for nine days. She had bought a new home with her husband in Florida and made sure she got a professional to spray for cockroaches, but one got in her ear anyway while she was sleeping. It took nine days and three doctors to retrieve it.
She said it felt like “a chip of ice” in her ear. She got part of it out with a cotton swab, and then her husband tried tweezers and got more. She had to go to the emergency room for the rest. They tried a numbing agent to kill the bug. The medicine killed the bug, and then the doctor supposedly removed the remaining pieces. She was sent home with medication, but needed to go to her family doctor for four ear flushes, since she was still experiencing pain. More pieces came out. He then sent her to a specialist and more pieces were discovered and completely removed. Finally, the entire bug was gone, but the psychological horror lingered.
