Tooth pain!!!

After all this time in braces I still get pain.
Today was adjustment day. 
Holy.Freakin.Cow.
He put in a strong wire... like superman had a baby with Hulk strong.
I swear he was practically standing on my face trying to push that wire in.
Yeah, it hurt. You think I am exaggerating, I'm not. 
So I go back in 6 weeks. Story of my life. 
He says next time he will FINALLY take off the buildups I have on my molars.
Then he says he will start bending wires to finish all the tweaking. 
Tweaking... yep that's right. We are in the finishing stages. 
Maybe we're not quit talking end game here but we're getting close, I can feel it. 
I can taste the freedom... literally, I am hungry, my teeth hurt like a.... well you know.

Just something funny... and sad to say, true

So I was browsing the internet for funny graphic tees (I have no life... that's why)
and I came across this awesome sticker I wanted to share.
{At first jack was worried braces would affect his social life... then he remembered he had no social life.


This so sums up my life right now. I am way too busy for a social life.
Braces just add to my cool factor.
Hope you guys get a chuckle out of this... I sure did.

Yay for Vaca!!

I am running out of exciting things to talk about regarding my braces. 
Not much is happening...
They.
look.
fine.
Take them off already. 
I went to Cali last week to visit family and it was awesome.
I have so much going on always so it was nice to get away from everything. 
The week before me and the hubs went to Lewis and Clark Caverns.
I guess we have been trying to do some fun stuff while the weather is nice...
it wont be for long.
Here is a pic... you can see how much straighter my teeth have gotten.
I think they look perfect. My ortho does too but we still are working on the jaw soooo.

Sorry for the lack of tooth info. I just don't have anything new to report really. 
I have my next appointment in 2 weeks. 
Maybe he will have something new and exciting for me to do.

Way to long...

Last week I had adjustment number... I don't even know... 1 million?
Ok, so I may be exaggerating that one a bit but it feels like it some days. 
So I finally asked the big question.... How much longer?
As everyone knows, I was sentenced to 2 to 2 1/2 years in braces. 
I asked him to give me a rough estimate for getting these bad boys off. 
He said that everything is looking good and I could have them off in January. 
That would be 23 month!! He did say it could be sooner or later but that was his guess. 
I bounce back to work on cloud nine... only 7 more months? Heaven right?
Well apparently I was the only one who thought that was a good time frame. 
Everyone at work was like really, another 7 months? 
I thought 7 more months would be cake... I mean I have already had them for like 17 so whats another 7.
Well bubble burst I guess... thanks co workers. 
Other than that nothing really new happened. I am going to Cali next month to visit family.
I asked if I could come in before I left to get my ligs changed. I don't want to go see family with stains. 
He was awesome he scheduled me for the day before I leave. 
Yay for no stains.... and possible only 7 more months!

16 months 2 days

Here is a pic i took this weekend... looking pretty good if i do say so myself. I have to say that this 6 weeks has probably been the hardest. I have already had a wire clipped and now i need to go back and have a couple more done... for some reason these wires just really want to cut me. Not only have my teeth been super uncomfortable this time... but everyone seems to be getting their braces off. I know this one guys from work and we have always had this unspoken braces bond. Now he has his off and our bond is broken. Every time i see him now he gives me a little wink... kinda like he's saying hang in there it will happen to you one day. What the H man... also i went out of town last week to see my inlaws and they gave me the look. They even said... really you still have them on... haven't you had them forever? My thoughts exactly man. Oh and just to make me feel even better about myself i go to work on monday to find that my coworkers mother got her braces off. She is 50 and only had hers on for a month before i got mine. What the H man. I guess my hopes of getting them off before my family reunion next month is out of the question. I go in again next friday. I am going to ask him seriously if he has an estimate... just a ballpark figure. I feel like it has been forever. Let me off this ride im done.

15 Months 1 Week... 3 Days.

So on the braces front there is nothing new to report. 
My teeth are still there... as well as my brackets.
Elastics are also still along for the ride. 
Everyone says it gets worse before it gets better. 
I am still waiting for the getting better part. 
I guess they are talking about the look of your teeth
and in that case, I look way better than I did.
I just want to know when the whole process of braces gets better.
Maybe that part doesn't get better until you get them off.
My teeth no longer hurt, my lips are no longer dry, and my cheeks have toughened up.
Everything is good.
I just don't know why I am having such issues with my braces.
I. want. them. off.
I am 15 months in and at last check, I will be in them for at least 24.
That is 9 more months. 
I don't know if I can handle that. 
I want to eat in public without running to the bathroom.
I want to not be paranoid when I talk to co workers.
I want to not have to constantly ask if I have something in my teeth.
Last but not least, I want to be able to recklessly bite into food
without worrying I will break something.
Or wonder how hard it will be to remove from my teeth. 
Enough Debbie Downer.
At least my teeth look beautiful underneath all that hardware.
