I am still struggling with Bells Palsy, but I am starting to see improvements. The recovery processes is going to take several more months.
I can fully close my eyelid again, so I am not taping my eye shut anymore. However, blinking my left eye still requires a good bit of effort and concentration. I also get fatigued easily, since my body is still trying to recover.
The other day, I told my mom I needed to take a nap. I was exhausted, because I spent hours blinking.
My mom laughed. She thought it was the most ridiculous sounding excuse for a nap that she ever heard. However, she did admit in my case it was valid.
