This is the first blog post of 2018, and while it has nothing to do with what I usually blog about, it’s what’s going on in my life right now. The last two months have brought me the greatest joy of being a new mom, but there have been plenty of dark days dealing with Bell’s Palsy. It’s definitely one of the harder things I’ve had to endure, and there’s moments where I feel like I’ll be stuck like this forever, but I know the mind is a powerful thing and I have to be reminded to stay positive. I count my blessings every time I get down, and I know there are much harder things people are going through. I never want to sound like all I care about is my outer appearance because that’s not what matters, but regardless, Bell’s Palsy is still difficult to deal with. It’s just a scary thing because there’s so much left to the unknown. I have hope that I will one day smile again, but for now, I just want to share my experience so far with you all. I have a hard time even going to the grocery store (lol), so I’m really nervous to post this video. Please be kind! 😉 Also, I know I sound really monotone and a little quiet but Kalep & Mila were sleeping while I filmed this, so I didn’t want to wake them up! I hope sharing my experience can help someone out there dealing with this as well. I know, for me, it always helps me to know I’m not alone, and it gives me hope to see others recover. I will be starting physical therapy in the next week for 6-8 weeks, but will continue trying home remedies and always love to hear from others what has worked for them, so if you have dealt with Bell’s before or know someone who has recovered from it, feel free to send me any advice!
That’s it for now!
