I used to ignore my ability to smile. Suddenly last January, right after our blog conference with Angel Locsin, Maja Salvador and JC De Vera for Legal Wife, my smile has completely disappeared. Gone just like that.
I was actually posing for a picture because I got the biggest portion of ice cream than any of my blogger friends, so I was smiling from ear to ear, so I thought. Imagine how bewildered I was when I saw all my pictures showing me with a smirk. I told my friend to delete it and never show it to anyone. The following day I got admitted to the emergency room of the hospital near our home because my blood pressure that shot up to more than 200. Then the neurologist confirmed my fear it was Bell's Palsy. Sad as I was because I can't smile anymore as often as I'd like to. I consulted a rehabilitation doctor and a cardiologist and underwent a physical therapy at the hospital.
At first, I asked God why me? I survived a ruptured brain aneurysm not a long time ago and here it is again a different disease which took away my ability to smile. Yeah, grumpy as I am, I usually smile when being photographed. You can Imagine my frustrations because I could no longer attend events plus somebody I met from an event asked me to invite bloggers then cancelled at the last minute. Buti siya hindi siya kilala ng mga bloggers, eh ako? Hay kaka bwisit talaga. Kaya siguro lalo lang ako nagkakasakit dahil sa mga taong tulad niya. Lipulin na sana kayo sa mundong ibabaw para wala kayong napiperwesyo. Pero teka, itapon na sa kankungan ang mga negang tao na tulad niya dapat pa rin tayong mag pasalamat kasi buong buo ang mga ngiti na namumutawi sa inyong mga labi.
So guys and gals don't forget to smile always! Appreciate your smile mga kabagang.
