I have bell's palsy... it started last tuesday, it's been one week and although it seems to be getting better it is very frustrating.
Half of my face is paralized, I cannot fully close my left eye, I drool(sp?) whenever I drink/eat something and I cannot taste any flavors with that side of my tongue... I have to stay away from drastic temperature changes and just be patient, just deal with stuff coming out of my mouth all the time.
I work as a bank teller, so going to work like this wasnt an option for me, although my managers didnt think like that... one of them suggested I use sunglasses at work... :S yeah! right!!
Well, I finally found a place that would pick up food for me... I think with this I have treated myself until my son/daughter turns 18! I had to order $20 worth of food, plus fees and delivery... tip, it all came up to $30... At least my hubby will have some yummy boneless chicken wings when he gets home...
