Bell’s Palsy

What is Bell’s palsy?

Bell’s palsy is a paralysis or weakness of the muscles on one side of your face. Damage to the facial nerve that controls muscles on one side of the face causes that side of your face to droop. The nerve damage may also affect your sense of taste and how you make tears and saliva. This condition comes on suddenly, often overnight, and usually gets better on its own within a few weeks.
Bell’s palsy is not the result of a stroke a transient ischemic attack (TIA). While stroke and TIA can cause facial paralysis, there is no link between Bell’s palsy and either of these conditions. But sudden weakness that occurs on one side of your face should be checked by a doctor right away to rule out these more serious causes.

How is it treated?

Most people who have Bell’s palsy recover completely, without treatment, in 1 to 2 months. This is especially true for people who can still partly move their facial muscles. But a small number of people may have permanent muscle weakness or other problems on the affected side of the face.

Struggling to fit in

Wonder, a book written by R.J. Palacio, is about a 5th grade boy, born with a facial deformity and the struggles and emotions he goes through. Although it is a book written for children/young adults, it is a good books for all ages to read. It helps to deal with the idea of acceptance of all people and less pre-judging based on physical apperance. It is available at the Owen Sound and North Grey Union Public library!

Why is it sometimes difficult when interacting with people who have facial deformities?

Anyone have any suggestions or strategies?
