Bell’s palsy is characterized by muscle weakness that causes one half of the face to droop. It causes temporarily paralyzation and half your face. It is rare to get and if you do get it you’re always supposed to have it once. I had to three times as a child. The first time I was only ten years old and the last time I was getting ready to start high school. I really scary time for me. And I wanted to share my story on my bell Palsy.
But I was 10 years old I woke up one morning and I noticed half my face felt weird. So I ended up going to my mother who was a nurse and she knew what it was but obviously not going to freaky ten-year-old out we went to the ER. I ended up finding out that half my face would be paralyzed for a while. When asking how long the doctors really didn’t know this is a good last I heard from a week to six months. And that fucking scared me luckily for me it was about two weeks of the paralyzation but the lasting effects was pain I had a lot of pain in my face I have now been diagnosed with chronic pain because of the Bell palsy I don’t know if that, if you will without pausing to have chronic pain afterwards I know for me that is just what happened. The next time I ended up getting Bell’s Palsy I was 12ish I was currently homeschooled because of my anxiety in middle school was just hell and I knew of it now but it still did not make it any less carrier. This big unknown of what’s happening with my face I think it’s what scared me and sent my anxiety on a downward spiral. the last time I ended up getting it I was 14. I was getting ready to start high school. Which is supposed to be an exciting and scary time but for the better reason to. Instead I was terrified. I didn’t want to get made fun of because half my face didn’t work. I didn’t need people staring at me and laughing at me I was already the fat girl which is enough to get made fun of but I didn’t need this. Thankfully this one only lasted roughly three weeks a little bit longer than the last two and just before I started High School. Like I said before I now have chronic pain because of it and the side effects for that or Brandon I guess. Some days I’ll just have pain like migraine pains and they fighting hurt. Someday you’ll see my eye area swell up nothing too bad or around my cheek. These my face will be just like completely I’d normally read. And I’m gone to the doctor about this and they really don’t have an idea why that’s why they kind of put chronic pain towards the Bell’s palsy.
