Day 67: Ghost Healing

People say I look better. That with my Bell’s Palsey my face is less lop-sided. But I can’t tell. I shun mirrors but when shaving.

Then lately I feel I’m getting better. Talking is easier. Chewing is easier. But then a few hours later I do something to prove the hope is all for naught. A mirror can fool me too.

The rear view mirror in my car shows less droopiness than the one in the bathroom. Probably the angle.

I saw my acupuncturist mid-paragraph and she says since last Friday, I look worse. Stress. Lots of stress.
