Happy Anniversary Bells Palsy?

02 Jul

 

A year ago today, my life split into “Pre” and “Post”. I look at the pictures from the early days and months and I cringe. Sometimes my emotions come to the forefront and I am remembering how I felt not being able to use half of my face. I remember not being able to think clearly or see clearly. I was trapped in my own body and in my mind. I couldn’t believe it was happening to me!

One of the strangest things about having Bells Palsy is that you don’t know and it can’t be predicted when you will be back to normal. People were telling me I would start to feel better in a few weeks. Yes that happens for some, but I was like many others where it continued and continued and continued. I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Correction, I saw the light but it was a train coming at me!

This week my bells has been “acting up”. Luckily i have my support group to look to for guidance. My left side of my face has felt sore, my left eye has been a little watery, there has been some twitching under my left eye. It isn’t continous, but it comes and goes and its annoying as …But I do know some of the triggers and have routines to address each issue.

One thing I am thankful out of this trying year is that it has enchanced my business. I became obsessed with sharing Bells Palsy with the world. People of all ages are getting it and nobody is talking about it! So I developed a series of workshop based on my illness and practicing self care. It has taken me across the country and in front a wide variety of people! It has been so satisfying to see people open to the idea of self care and better health! And it fits with my LIfe Coaching, Professional Organizing, and Entertainment businesses.

I am grateful to be here on Earth still, that I am 95 percent better, and I am able to get out there and be creative and useful. I worked very hard to come back from Bells and again I would not wish this on anyone! A year ago today, my life changed forever…for the better.
