Well it’s been a week since I came down with Bell’s palsy. It sucks big time. My eye will barely close and I’m having a hard time eating.
I found out you really don’t want to eat caramel when half your face is paralyzed. Damn you vendors for bringing in Christmas goodies.
On the up side, I now know what I would look like if I got Botox, uh, give me back my wrinkles and my smile please.
What a pain! Hope this goes away soon.
Thanks, me too. It’s cramping my style.
You’ve got style in spades!
I know right…
but you’re adjusting just fine… and dealing with it In a very humorous manner
Thanks, I’m here all week! LOL!
Hope you feel better soon
Thanks so much.
You are such a brave and wonderful person. So many would have been crushed by this happening when it did, heck even happening at all. Yet you did not hide, you clearly set it out for all of us and you made me understand more than i did about this. Of course I want you better and to heal up as soon as possible, but I have to say I admire you for your ability to not let this get you down, to not let it destroy you. I think is grand you still have your sense of humor and your love of life. Be safe, be well as possible, hugs
Thanks so much Scottie. It could always be worse. I could of had a stroke. It’s more annoying than anything.
Again you are a grand brave person and you don’t take your health problems out on anyone else. A sure sign of a great temperment. Respect and hugs
Maybe I should be president huh? 😉
Better than what is coming in for sure!!! Hugs
That’s for sure!
I’m so sorry you are going through this. As if there isn’t enough to be done each day. I hope you improve soon. Keep smiling even though it is a little lopsided, it’s a beautiful smile.
Don’t worry it will go away, soon. I like how you add humor to the situation though. Lol. ” give me back my wrinkles and smile …” Keep being positive and appreciating your natural beauty.
Thank you so much. I try to be positive. It’s a crappy situation that I just have to wait out. Thanks for stopping by.
Had a friend who’d get this every few years. They gave him anti-inflammatory steroids, cortisone, I think, and after a week or two, it would clear up. It does suck i n the meantime, however, I’m sure. Hope you’re well soon. $Amen$
Thanks, this is my second go around. Probably the worst thing this week is I’m teaching three classes to high school students. It’s hard to be my funny self when you only see half my smile! That and the drooping part!
I’m sorry to see you’re not better yet. You are brave and upbeat despite it being difficult x
Thanks! It won’t do me any good to have a pity party. (even though I guess I kinda did) LOL!
Haha well I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted pity. I would! I just hope you’re better soon so you can enjoy eating and in time for Christmas☺ x
I do enjoy Christmas goodies. I don’t know if I’ll be making my sea salt caramels though. LOL!
Aaw fingers crossed you can😊 x
I have to say they are some crazy good caramels. Super easy to make, everyone really loves them. So I just won’t eat any, and it just may kill me. LOL!
Aaw I’m hoping and praying you recover soon. I bet. I love caramels x
Here’s the recipe https://cornfedcontessa.com/2014/07/14/six-minute-sea-salt-microwave-caramels/ They will be your new favorite I promise.
Thanks so much. I’m sure they will be☺ x
I’m sorry about your Bells Palsy. One of my favourite wrestling commentators of all time has it (Jim Ross) and he’s awesome so you are in good company 😘
Thanks! It’s more annoying than anything. I was teaching a high school class this morning, and spilled my water all over myself. The mouth isn’t working too good. I guess I won’t be binge drinking for awhile! LOL!
Well you could binge drink but it may unexpectedly turn into a scene from wild things with all the all the alcohol spilling.
Nah, I could use a straw. LOL! Hell, I barely drink as it is. But maybe I need to start.
Drink away 😋
May the healing happen quickly!
Thanks so much, me too!
My sister in law had this after the birth of her daughter in 1988 and was fine after a few weeks. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks! The last time I had it, it took over a month to get better. That was 12 years ago. It certainly could have been a lot worse for sure.
I hope it won’t be too long before it clears up. Take care.
Thanks so much.
The eye closing is the hardest for me. One day I taped my eyelid open…stupid…dry eye …don’t do it!!, but it did pass. Hoping you recover soon
Thanks so much. It is a pain. Plus driving at night has been a bit dicey. I probably shouldn’t be doing it.
I wouldn’t, do they know what caused it?
No, it’s just one of those weird medical things.
I appreciate your vulnerability in sharing this. It helps others. Hopefully, it will pass soon but in the meantime there is the blessing that it fits well with your sassy web presence.
Thank you so much. I hoping I’ll be better by Christmas. Can’t have a frowney face in front of the Christmas tree!
If it helps any, you look really good! 🙂
Thanks a bunch. You just made my day!
Feel better soon!
Thanks so much.
I totally feel for you! I remember one time when my mouth got hit and looked lopsided. It took about two weeks to heal completely. I hope you get better soon I’m rooting for you 😊
Thank you so much. I’m a jockster by nature, so my half cocked smile reminds me it will get better.
I hope it does 😊
Oh no! Hope you feel better soon : (
Thanks Bonnie. I just got my first Birchbox, so things are looking up.
That is good news : )
You look lovely, as if you had a delightful secret to keep or share. One day at a time.
Thanks so much.
I hope this departs soon, and asked G-d to do that, so I hope He will.
Ooooh Maaan.. really sucks..
but I must say I love ❤️ your attitude… and are such an inspiration..
and it will go soon… ..
just exercise your patience a little longer
Thanks so much.
May you have your wrinkles back soon. Sending you a hug
Thanks! It’s weird because you can barely see the dent I have in my forehead. I would be okay if that didn’t come back.
Reading your comments you have a great sense of humor. Keep it up and a speedy recovery!
Thanks so much. I try to see the humor in pretty much everything.
My brother had that twice. We thought he had a stroke. Luckily, that wasn’t the case. Hope you have a speedy recovery!
Thanks so much. It’s weird to get it twice. The only good thing about that is I knew I wasn’t having a stroke.
OH my goodness! I am so sorry you have to deal with that 😦 But you described it all in such a humorous way… I hope that it all gets resolved soon. What an absolutely crazy thing Bells Palsy is, right?!
Thanks. Especially to get it twice!
Nooo 😦 😦 Prayers your way, friend!
Thanks so much. It’s getting much better. Almost have half my smile back.
Sorry to read this.
Thanks! It’s not fun for sure, but I’ve lost 3 pounds in a week, so that can’t be a bad thing! LOL!
I love that your confident with bp. Most people become a victim of any bad thing. Your awesome 👏
Thanks! I try to find humor in every situation.
