You always wanted an up close and personal view of my funky teeth, right?
Despite having the nicest orthodontist in Albuquerque, there's no denying that braces suck! Oh, my poor teeth are killing me. Teenage Me, who swore she would never get braces, is very upset with Grown Up Me! She was right all along.
Seriously, everyone told me that my teeth would hurt for the first few days but then be fine. It has been 3 loooong weeks and my teeth are just as sore as when my braces were put on. Sexy Nerd says I'm a wimp. My boss, the pediatric dentist, says I really shouldn't expect to or try to eat anything solid, like a sandwich (!) until the braces come off and that a liquid diet would be best.
I would probably lose a ton of weight over the next year...but chocolate cake, ice cream, and pudding are all so wonderfully soft!
