So it has been a while... seems like an eternity to me! It has been about a month and a half now since I have had these bad boys on. I gotta say.... I hate the way I look, I hate the way they feel AND I hate how they are moving my teeth and creating new BIGGER gaps in different places. As you can imagine it took me some time you get over the insecurities I had about the gap in the middle. When i say "some time" I means YEARS. So to have to adjust in only a month, its tough. I am sure I am noticing the changes more then the public but still. This is an emotional hurtle I need to overcome and only time will tell... So, to add to that I had a little mini break down day 3 of the braces! Cried my eyes out. Luckily I have a man who doesn't understand why I am so emotional but will at least pretend he does, give me a hug, and tell me I am beautiful. I have had little breakdowns since then. Not too much crying in public though.... (boyfriend counts as public.) Most of the breakdowns have been alone... haha. Pathetic, but all that I can do to get me through is to look forward to the end of the road and the end result! Here are some updated photos... time for me to veg out and watch my Tues night shows! Hope everyone is doing well with their struggles! I will try and browse around on here more and catch up!
