Carnie Wilson and the admission regarding her battle with a medical disorder called Bell's Palsy was trending on March 18. The singer. who is a member of Wilson Phillips, said she went public about her struggle so that she is able to help others who suffer from the same problem.
This admission by the 44-year-old entertain was written on Twitter, a regular confession spot for Wilson who routinely writes on the social media site without being bashful.
With that in mind, this popular personality also said in 140 words or less on Monday that she is now healing from her most recent bout with Bell's Palsy. She told her fans that their "wishes have warmed [her]" and she commented that having so many people care is making this trouper "heal faster."
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Bell's Palsy is a nerve disorder take takes over control of the movement of the face's muscles. Damage to this nerve, called the facial or seventh cranial nerve, causes weakness or paralysis of these particular muscles.
That said, between 30,000 and 40,000 Americans suffer from Bell's Palsy just like Carnie Wilson does. The disorder has apparently been part of her life for some time now as the performer claimed she has suffered this before in another area of her face.
Still, Carnie remains positive while being open about her struggles on this matter. While she is better today, she tweeted last week about what she faces, spelling out the fact that this disorder has been affecting the left side of her face this time around.
Carnie Wilson called the situation "scary" and "unfortunate" and "a challenge" but she insisted that the disorder "goes away." And so, in noting this, Wilson gives hope to others who are faced with the same situation. That said, her words should be a comfort to anyone who finds himself or herself wondering what is going to happen if Bell's Palsy strikes close to home.
