I'm so glad you're here.

Hey, I'm Barbie.  I woke up in September 2015 with Bell's Palsy on the left side of my face.  I have been through a lot, learned a lot and shared a lot.

I am not a doctor (they have to do way too much school), or an expert in any way.  I like to talk.  I am open, real and love to make people laugh.  I have tried a LOT of things to help with Bell's, some have worked, some have not and some were just super weird!  

I started the BP Talk community to be a resource for those who are going through the incredibly hard journey of Bell's.  Because listen up - you are a survivor.  And one day you will wear your new smile like a badge of honour.  

You are not alone.  And you will be ok.  This community is here to help you - let's talk! 

So much of the conversation happens over at BP TALK on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK so come join in!

BP Resource Links

Welcome!  When I woke up in 2015 with Bell's Palsy, the first thing I did was of course - Google it!  Here are some links I have found around the web.  While I do look for reputable sources and take the advice of professionals in the field, I do not endorse the following links in any way.  Please do your own research and follow your heart.  You will heal in your own time and this community is here to support you. 

If you have links or resources to share - please send them in!

Much love,
