Please excuse this short interruption to our regular schedule! This week is Facial Paralysis Awareness Week (yep, there’s a week for everything!) so I thought I would share my personal journey with Bell’s Palsy and how it affected me both personally and with my business.
I developed Bell’s Palsy in 2021 shortly after the birth of my baby girl. Having already had Bell’s Palsy when I was just 10 I knew exactly what it was when it hit, but thought it would go away just as quickly… it didn’t!
I’m one of 5% of people who suffer from Bell’s Palsy that it doesn’t go away for – lucky me!
It has affected me physically, but mostly mentally. In today’s episode I’m pulling back the curtains on what life was really like with a newborn and a half paralysed face and how I’ve grown my confidence back over the last 2 years.
Don’t worry, I’ll be back with more eCommerce marketing tips next week!
