The Little Things We Take for Granted

by Dave in

So as some of you may be aware, three weeks ago I was bitten by a deer tick. I found it -- and removed it -- within 24 hours, then found the bullseye rash and realized I was probably infected with Lyme disease. So, I went to the doc and got on antibiotics right away. No problem. A week later, I developed Bell's Palsy, which means the right side of my face became paralyzed. Yay. Well, today, about 2 weeks after the onset, I noticed my right cheek twitching, which it has done on occasion basically since this all started. I tried to control it, as I have in the past (and failed), and this time it worked. Now I can twitch my right cheek (a little bit, anyway) on command! A small step, but HUGE in that it's a step in the right direction.

Maybe this thing won't last too long after all...
