So, my hands are shaking terribly from nerves and I had to take the day off. I have not yet blogged about this because I am a little embarrassed as well as nervous to the point I've thrown up twice today. Yes, twice. No, I'm not pregnant. That would be joyful vomiting. I am getting braces. Two weeks ago, I went in thinking the braces would be totally on; however, ran into some problems and they were only able to get the brackets on. Apparently, my teeth are so crowded my spacers would not go in. They snapped and broke three trying to pry them between my molars. Next, they tried the old school wires, got two in on the bottom; but, crammed as the might could not get them in on the top. So, Dr. Carter, my orthodontist, has another plan in mind. I feel like a total pumpkin mouth right now because I've been walking around with just the brackets on my teeth. I'm excited and looking forward to a future of straight teeth, but am incredibly nervous about the pain I'm going to endure this afternoon.
