At Least You Don’t Have Moebius Syndrome

Don’t tell Hayley to turn her frown upside down. She’s not trying to be a Debbie Downer, she is just incapable of smiling or moving her face at all for that matter. The 14-year-old suffers from a rare genetic disorder called Moebius Syndrome. People with this disorder are born missing vital nerves and sometimes limbs. This often impairs their ability to speak, blink, chew, or move their face. In Hayley’s case, her speech is very limited, her face is paralyzed, she has no hands, sleeps with her eyes open, and suffers with severe digestive issues. I dare you to try to complain about your problems now. [The Sun]
