It is very difficult for somebody who doesn't suffer with facial nerve palsy to understand how it affects your looks and everyday self-esteem and self-confidence. The majority of Bell's Palsy sufferers just want to lock themselves indoors because they feel totally uncomfortable when people see the side of their face all droopy and distorted. Bell's Palsy symptoms are easily recognisable by the muscles on one or both sides of your face being paralyzed. Bell's Palsy causes your speech to be slurred, it will also prevent you from smiling and in some instances can prevent you from eating. Your eyelids droop and as such you find it very difficult to blink your eyes. This explanation paints a very hideous picture for the onlooker but just imagine how the sufferer feels. It has a devastating effect on the person's self-esteem and self-confidence and unfortunately because of their condition there is no hiding place for someone suffering with facial nerve palsy. The author of this book has been a genuine sufferer of Bell's Palsy since birth and has suffered the constant stigma of all the childhood taunts and comments, inquisitive looks and stares that someone with facial nerve paralysis encounters every single day.
