I haven't written much about the Bell's Palsy. I have *almost* fully recovered. Most people tell me it's not noticeable. One of my very good friends tells me she can still tell, and I appreciate her honesty. Because it is still noticeable, especially to me. My eye gets tired at night and droopy. When my nostril moves, it makes my lower eyelid twitch. And my smile hasn't really come back all the way... and I love my smile.
I've been thinking a lot about how to encourage more movement since it's been quite a while since the onset. I haven't had any improvement in at least six weeks, so I wasn't sure I would get anymore. But I've thought a lot about it. Today, as though my face was listening to my thoughts, my chin started to quiver. I've noticed some improvement in my smile too. I am hoping that the nerves keep regrowing and that by November, I will have my old smile back.
