One year, one month, and three weeks since brace day!

So I added some pages to the blog... over on the sidebar... go on look... you know you wanna. Anyways they are just a progression page, so you don't have to look back to the beginning to see, and an about me page. I think they are fun. I am planning on taking some new pics tomorrow. I know I have been bad with picture lately but nothing seems to be happening.

One year, one month, and two weeks since brace day!

Man oh man what a painful journey my mouth has been on lately. I'm sure you guys are sick of hearing about these spring but good lord... It just seems like my mouth will not heal. Every time I get one sore healed, another one creeps up. I have my next appointment in 3 weeks so I am crossing my fingers he can take them off. Other than the springs not much is going on. I think my teeth have moved so much over this last year that there is nothing really visible happening now. When you first get braced you constantly look in the mirror for the slightest change. Now after this long all that stuff is done. My teeth are basically straight. This is the time in treatment I would assume people get antsy. I know I sure am. I know there is still work to be done but this step is work that you don't really see. Well I'm just glad I am now more on the almost finished end... instead of the just started end.... even though I don't think I am even close to done.

I can't take it!!

So I went in a couple weeks ago for an adjustment. All went well, I guess as good as can be expected. He didn't take my springs out. Instead he tightened them. I can't take it anymore. They are awful. I developed a hole... literal hole on the upper side of my right cheek. I stuffed cotton in my mouth for the weekend. That healed but now I have another hole on the bottom right side of my cheek. Back to the cotton. I tried wax but there is just so much spring to cover and it is way to wet. I really just want to go back and have him take the springs out. I haven't had an enjoyable meal in weeks. Every time I open my mouth it catches on the skin and rips more hole. I just am ready to be done. I go back in 3 and a half weeks. Hopefully my bite has moved enough that he can take these death traps out. Anyways enough ranting. That's all for now.
