Gamble When You Get a Face

I haven't smiled since I was 7 months old. Bell's Palsy is a Bitch.

Meghann Mayhem: So yesterday I got diagnosed with Bell's Palsy

meghannmayhem:

And it sucks. A lot. I cannot control the movement in the right side of my face at all. I can’t smile normally, and I can’t close my eye normally. I feel stupid and it sucks because I feel like I look like an idiot no matter what I do. And I am upset that I don’t get to celebrate the winning of…

Oh so George clooney had bells palsy when he was a teen ? Fingers crossed my face looks glorious after mine leaves .

P.s. it’s not the jean creatian looks like I had a stroke one . It’s the why did you do Botox to only half your face .

laney-darling:

Eye patches don’t look cute at all . I wanted to atleast be a cute pirate if I’m gonna have bells palsy for now .

There’s a certain person I follow on twitter who keeps making jokes about her newly diagnosed Bell’s Palsy/facial paralysis and it makes me scream because she’s making all these jokes about how she must look ‘scary’ when she looks at kids and how it’s all just so funny. I want to send them a ‘HEY I THOUGHT YOU WERE COOL BUT NOW I WANT TO UNFOLLOW YOU’ message because I really don’t appreciate it when people make fun of medical illness AT ALL but I can’t really do that because this person has thousands of followers and I only have like 54 and I don’t wanna make a dick of myself. I’ve had Bell’s Palsy since I was born and I’ll have it for the rest of my life and I have been self-conscious about it since my first day of prep and therefore I’m quite aware I’m probably just taking this too personally but like all this person had to do was write a tiny disclaimer saying ‘I’m sorry to all the people out there that actually have Bell’s Palsy you’re all beautiful’ and I would’ve been fine.
The other day I took a snapchat of me talking but I didn’t send it to anyone because my face stretched out in one direction too much and I hated it. Today I had to get a new passport photo (as above) because my other one was too old and my first thought was that my face is too round and chubby and has no definition whatsoever and the fact I have such a tiny neck doesn’t help either and I don’t like it much. I should never look at photos of myself or take photos of myself eveR because god, I really should know better by now.
