So here's the deal. I went to get my bottom braces today. My bottom teeth (the whole reason for getting braces) were so crooked that they couldn't even put brackets on two of my teeth. I now have a GIANT spring right in the front of my mouth, connecting the two sections of teeth that DO have brackets. Aside from feeling like I have dip in my mouth, my bite doesn't match up. To prevent biting off my brackets, I have rubber things on two of my bottom brackets. In lay people's language - it feels like I am biting down on a gummy bear all of the time. Another way to put it is - this just SUCKS. Sorry, I just had to say it! Yeah, and to top it all off, I can't even talk right. So, I look like a geek and I talk like one too!
Gosh, I just can't wait to turn 40 in a few weeks. That will just be the icing on the cake! Good thing I have a sense of humor and love life. :(I) That's a computer image of my brace-face smile!
I may post a photo later. And as promised, I will fill in on recent FUN activities happening at the WEJ home.
