I finally had my braces put on earlier this week, so now starts the first year of braces… before surgery. It has been 3 days and I am getting use to the feeling, and do think that I might be able to start eating harder foods again soon, but my biggest grievance with them right now are the inside of my cheeks getting caught and cut up on them.

In a couple weeks I get to start using elastics 80% of the time, which should make life even more fun. And if you were around me right now, you’d have fun trying to understand me as I attempt to not move my lips.
