I wonder what that SC would have made of me. When I was very little, mom had Bell's Palsy.
I had Bell's Palsy in Dec. 2011, and it took months for me to get any movement to the left side of my face. I couldn't even blink my eye and had to wear an eyepatch on that side. Even now, my smile is crooked. It will act up worse if I'm tired or stressed out, and my face will contort on it's own making me look like I'm winking at people. It's fairly creepy.
The only SC I really had to deal with in reference to it complained to my manager that I shouldn't be at work exposing people to it if I was sick. Never mind that I had been wearing the eyepatch for about a month at that point and Bell's Palsy isn't really contagious.
