My Paralyzed Face
I am not sure if I have mentioned this on here before, but the left side of my face is paralyzed.
In April 2007, I woke up one morning and the left side of my face was paralyzed. They thought it may have been a stroke. Luckily, it was not. I had Bells Palsy.
Anywhoo, I have made some progress over the past 16 months, but not much. Most of the left side is still paralyzed.
I have worried about the wedding pictures since I can't smile big and bright showing teeth anymore. I can make a small smile with my mouth closed and I look pretty normal, but when I try and smile showing teeth, the right side is perfect, but the left side is a bit cockeyed.
Well, like I said, for the past year, I have been worried about how the wedding photos will look.
Now that the wedding is a mere 6.5 months away, I am growing increasingly concerned.
I mean I see all of these brides smiling showing their pearly whites in all of their glory. Kind of makes me sad since I won't be able to do that with out it looking a bit off.
Oh well, shit happens right??
Thanks for listening. :0)
