    I'm getting braces in less than a week. I have crowding and my front tooth is very crooked but they wont have to pull any teeth, which makes me super happy. I'm not really worried about what people think. Mainly I'm disappointed about the food restrictions. I am lucky though...

    but my ortho is in muscatine and I have to leave school early and that means missing my favorite class with my favorite teacher and missing gym :(

    Fml. The orthodontist

    even said they weren't necessary.. Just my dad saying how he thinks I should have them because they'll help for future things. How the **** would you know. It's my choice. Not yours I don't want them. I don't necessarily need them so I don't want them. But it's too late now...

    We can afford braces now.

    I went to the orthodontist today, and I definitely need them. I am older than most people who get braces, though. And, I am nervous. I also have an open bite and need to get elastics. Those look annoying. And what if they snap? It hurts already when they snap and hit you...
