I always like to preface that I know this is just a condition. Its something my body is going through and many many others go through as well. Its not a life threatening situation, nor is it a permanent condition. This past weekend was the 3rd complete week I've had Bells Palsy. Each week I have taken a few minutes to do a quick recap with how I'm feeling, if I've had any struggles, and shared a laugh or two.
Thank you for taking the time to read up each week. It's easy to read the title and know that I obviously still have Bells Palsy, but you still click on the link, read what I have to say, and even add comments. It really means a lot to me. Just another reason to love ActiveRain. As Deb Brooks of Lake Livingston once said I Love My Computer Because My Friends Live In It You have truly made this much easier to deal with. Plus as JL pointed out, it is VERY therapeutic.
As I reported in last weeks update, I have not been attending any of my closings over the past three weeks. This week will be the my first week to attend closings. Many of my customers are aware of my condition and understand that it a short term. I never thought the customers would judge me based on this situation. The concern was very much internal, which I just needed to get over. My closings take place Thursday and Friday. Assuming nothing major happens, I plan on attending BOTH.
As for movement... still pretty much the same. I have noticed a slight difference in my left eye (the paralyzed side). When this started, I could not wink out of both eyes. Only my right eye could blink. My left eye would only shut IF my right eye was already shut. Towards the middle of the week, I am able to almost close my left eye without the right one being closed. Doesn't sound like much, but I was taking it as a good sign. The doctor mentioned it would come back slowly (couple days/weeks) not like the way it showed up (24 hours).
I am happy to report that I still do not have any drooping. Based on pictures and horror stories I've heard, I could have had a drooping side. As I mentioned before, it was like Botox for me because I don't have any movement. I've become much more comfortable talking and think that my face has adjusted as well (not sure if thats a good thing or bad). I've been told that I sound the same on the phone, but some of that is also because I avoid certain words to the best of my ability (still with the 'F's and 'V's). Sometimes I'll take a second to think of another way to say something. LOL
Things are going well. Thank you for catching up with me and perhaps next week I'll have more improvement to report on. Talk with you all soon.
Have a great HUMP DAY
