Day 20 – Little Change so Find More Information
There has been little change over the last week now. Yes the eye has improved but there is a lot more going on with a face than just shutting your eye. So I thought on my quest to get more information and knowledge I would go along to a facial palsy support group meeting. Unfortunately it turns out that my local group only meets one every three months.
I should be grateful that there is a local support group but at the same time I thought to myself ‘I hope that by the time mid March comes along I won’t need to go.’ However, this is a facial palsy support group – NOT a Bell’s Palsy support group and by reading the information on their website (http://www.facialpalsy.org.uk) I am thinking there could be people there with a wide variety of causes to their facial paralysis. This is also interesting mentally because I am staying very positive based on the assumption that my facial paralysis is only temporary. Different causes are likely to have different degrees of permanence I would think and therefore the mental issue around it is going to be very different.
Regardless I have signed up to go along Mid March and I am looking forward to it. Usually you get to meet a lot of very interesting and usually very kind people so I think it will be well worth a few hours of my time. Most of all I am hoping that I am going to learn a lot from it. I will keep you posted!
Day 20 Progress Update Pictures
One thing did strike me is that either I am getting ‘better’ at controlling the pull from my good side, or else I might be showing a little improvement around the mouth in the ‘blow kiss’ picture. I will be keeping a closer eye on this ‘face’ in the next few days!
