Let’s talk about Bell Palsy

I had Bell’s Palsy when I was 10 and if you don’t know what that is that’s when you go paralyzed on half your face. It is temporary but as a ten-year-old going through that, that was difficult. I couldn’t talk or it was really hard to talk, I couldn’t sleep and it was overwhelming and uncomfortable! Bell palsy is really rare to have and if you ever do get it they say it’s a one-time deal, or so I thought. I had it three other times! I think the last one I had I was like 14 so I was just starting high school and that was a nightmare! having no feeling in half your face and high school is so shake your first year of high school but that’s tough. I was scared I was going to get made fun of I was in pain all the time I didn’t know I handle any of this especially this being my for the time I was scared that this was going to be a permanent thing. The doctors knew that this could have multiple times it was very very very rare but it could happen and they try to send for me but again I was 14 I didn’t understand what was really going on. At night I had to sleep with an eye patch sometimes just so I can even get sleep because I couldn’t shut the other eye all the way. I always have to put eye drop in then I because it would get really red and irritated and swollen. I could never focus on any school work or homework or anything that I was doing. Just being in pain and then trying to speak hurts it was just impossible for me to do anything. Now for me the the paralyzation only lasted for about 2 to 3 weeks but the damage of that side of my face has lasted for a while. I still noticed today as a 20 year old that on my one side of my face the one eye is still a little bit true. I guess not by much but still there. And because of this I now have what they call chronic pain. My Bell palsy caused me to have a long-lasting pain that they say may never go away and that is what I’m going to go into in my next by post.
