So, for years I have begged for braces. Not because I have any desire to put myself through that kind of pain, but because I need them. I've had some spaces that have occasionally been sensitive and are food traps, my bite is off, my mid-line is off, it's tricky to clean some teeth, etc. With the wonderful help of Dr. Matt, Kevin and I decided if I did not get them now, I probably would never end up getting them. Trust me folks, I'll have to say it was a great opportunity for us.
Yesterday, I sat in the chair for the whole movie of Finding Nemo and they were on... and that's when the misery began. My mouth is all practically raw inside from the metal scratching at my cheeks and lips and I can only eat soft bread like food cut into tiny pieces. Miserable! I'm very much so looking forward to after the "getting used to it" phase. They gave me this huge list of things I couldn't have like chips, caramel, ice cream, nuts... are you serious?! That is all the good stuff! Today I was wanting candy so bad I sucked on a mini Milky Way for 15 minutes just to get my little sugar in for the day. So hopefully things will start healing up and getting better soon!
And no, I am NOT posting a picture. Sorry!
