I was really getting bummed--I'm a social being!--and I was like, am I ever going to be able to socialize properly again? Saturday was the first day I felt like my
Bell's Palsy is a weird experience, all right. Yesterday I went to a chiropractor who said it was caused by inflammation, which is the result of my shitty diet. I really liked the guy, though. He wasn't judgmental and he was very good about the look I shot him when he suggested I learn to cook with spices. HA-ha-ha!!! Why don't I buy a friggin' juicer while I'm at it?
Look, I would give anything (not really) to be able to say, "Wow, that salad was delicious!" or "I could totally eat beans at every meal," but the truth is, I hate that shit. Corn is tasty, but that's bad for you. I do like spinach and broccoli, but guess what? I'm not supposed to eat broccoli because of the hypothyroid condition I've have for like 20 years and I don't know what's wrong with spinach, but that's on the Don't Eat list, too. Eff moi. I will, however, exercise till the cows come home, so that should count for something.
Anyway, he did say one thing that got my attention: Corn oil and soybean oil are to cancer what fertilizer is to crabgrass. That will get me checking the labels. So there goes my mayonnaise, but the last time I looked, there's none of that in Guinness. God bless us.
Hey, here's another video I posted on Facebook last night. This will probably be the end of the Bell's Palsy Chronicles, though I still have a little way to go before my eye is back to normal.
Don't think I'm special--there are a ton of Bell's Palsy videos on YouTube. And man, when I see some of them, I think how lucky I am that I had such a mild case.
Thanks so much for your support throughout. I'm a very lucky gal!
