Ever heard the old saying....

You feel like you have to get better before you could die! ;)

Lately for a while I honestly felt this way. But starting to come back around to feeling some better. Still very weak, but at least more and more every day like being myself.

About a week and a half ago I started feeling like I was getting a head cold. Within two days, it was feeling worse than the flu. Then things got worse on the 2nd day when I started having neck pains that were giving me hard headaches, plus sending shocks down my back, arms and legs when I would turn my head. 3rd day I started noticing it was getting harder to drink, having to use a straw and even hard to eat, along with my right eye lid dropping over my eye.
Wife started asking me questions over and over. She started getting in her mind that I've had a stroke. Well... I figured different because I knew I had no pain of any kind before all this started.
I never knew before all this that someone could have a stroke without pain.

Ok, I give in to her (I'm stubborn about going to a doctor until I have to) and figure it's time to call a doctor. Come to find I have a bad sinus infection, an ear infection. On top of that I also have Bell's Palsy which is causing the pain along with the changing of my eye and mouth.
I had never heard of Bell's Palsy before. Doctor says it come from a virus and will go away. I got meds for it and the sinuses. I'm still very much weak, but the pains is getting much less every day so hopefully before long I will be back to me.
I do know I had rather have the flu than to go through this ever again.

Link to Bell's Palsy if anyone don't know what it is.

Thanks to all from here and everywhere else that have wished me good wishes in getting better. Your very nice people to call friends! :)
