What the?!

Have you ever woke up from one of those dreams where you are hurt or paralized and you wonder after you wake up.. what a weird dream?! Well my friends yesterday morning I woke up and my eye was feeling funny but I didn't think anything of it of course! As the morning went on my eye was still bugging me and when I was putting on my make up I accidentally touched my eye and the salt from my finger was burning my eye (still I didn't think anything of it) I kept trying to blink but it wouldn't stop stinging, by now I was thinking eh oh well! But as I was driving to Kyler's house like I do every morning before school I noticed my left eye wasn't closing all the way and that's why I couldn't get my eye to stop stinging. I chuckled to myself and again didn't really think about it besides the fact that I thought it was funny. When I saw Kyler I went "Kyler Kyler!! Look at my left eye! It won't close all the way!" We both just laughed about it and went to school. (this whole time after calling Mckenna we had decided I slept funny and that's what happen). In first period I started to notice I couldn't move the left side of my mouth almost like I had just got back from the dentist. I felt numb! Still I just laughed and told everyone about it! No one really took me seriously until 3rd period when I was talking to my friend and she started to freak out about it and was telling me to leave for the doctors right now and this could be a serious thing, next thing I know eveyone in Student Council was looking at my face wondering what was wrong. So I decided that I better call my mom and tell her about it, she said to wait until after school and we'll go get it looked at. Kyler started to get worried and so we went to his house and Doctor Kim went on the internet and we looked up Palsy after searching for a few mintues we came up to a thing call Bells Palsy where pretty much you have "inability to control facial muscles on the affected side." I thought it was pretty cool I had it because it didn't sound permenate or anything! I called my mom again and told her I better go in aways. So low and behold Ta Da! You have Bells Palsy!! well that's not exactly how the doctor said it but hey I still think it's a pretty funny condition! They gave me some pills to take and said the worst thing should be for me is it might still be here for graduation (which I think would be AWESOME!) But already I am regaining my mouth muscle back (Dang it! I shouldn't have taking the pills right away He He!)

This is during second I'd say probably when it looked the worst (I didn't try to close my eye I didn't want to look too stupid!!)
This is today... after I started take the medication! and later today (got better sooner than hoped :(!!)


  1. Oh Kayla! You are one funny and unique girl. I think your reaction to this situation just makes me like you even more! You're awesome.

  2. You have such a good attitude about the whole thing, (way better than Kyler would). Keep smiling, I think your little crooked smile is cute.
