Sorry to hear that, grav.

I was writing a post with chuckles about glitter in it too ... then saw your second post. Stop being sneaky already!

Yes. Bruce. I have the same policy. I got your Christmas card the other day. Thanks! You can count on me to never send you glitter. If you want glitter, get it off a stripper.

I imagine that warning would go double for this Glitter.

Lyme related? What causes it?

My uncle suffered from that. I hope it's manageable.

Annoying but more embarrassing than debilitating, so far.
Doing a 10 day regimen of steroids and see what happens.

They don't know, but I hadn't seen Lyme mentioned as a possibility. The best thinking is something is fucking with the nerve bundle on one side of the face or the other. This bundle controls a lot of shit including facial muscles, eye blinking and taste. Usually it goes away as the body takes care of the injury or infection causing pressure on the bundle. Sometimes it doesn't.

@Clod, was it a recurring thing with your uncle, or continuing?

It was pretty bad for awhile, then it went away for several years. I don't know what they did to fix it, if anything. Recently it seems to be coming back a little, but that's alongside some other pretty severe health problems, including multiple heart attacks and feet that have been numb for over two years, so I feel confident that it's not being addressed in any way now.

Sorry Bruce. I think three folks on my Dad's side of the family had Bell's. It was never a permanent condition, but I don't know about treatment.

Our neighbor had it for a couple of months. It got better, but he had to wear an eye patch for a while because his eye wouldn't close.

I hope yours doesn't get that bad.

I can't close my left eye by itself, but I can close both, as well as the right by itself.

So I've got that going for me, which is nice.
