I Woke Up And Half Of My Face Was Paralyzed

I woke up on a recent Thursday morning and, as usual, I caught up on some news for about an hour, and then jumped in the shower.

Like some amateur, I got soap in my eye while washing my face. That sucked. But things only got worse from there.

While I was brushing my teeth, toothpaste and spit spilled out of the side of my mouth.  And that's when I realized something was seriously wrong.

I started making some facial expression in the mirror, and the left side of my face was not moving.

I was clearly in shock because my first thought was that the mirror was broken.

But as soon as that ridiculous thought left my mind, panic set in as I concluded I must be having a stroke.

However, that didn't make any sense either because as far as I could tell, everything else was working fine.
