However, leading up to it I have been feeling vulnerable about how I would look. I also had to get glasses this week (only for reading thankfully). Suddenly my face is not my own anymore! Well, it's still mine. Just a new version of it.
Having teeth extracted was OK but I've been feeling exhausted and a bit sick since yesterday. The braces do feel strange. And my poor teeth are very sensitive. I can't bite anything hard and it's looking like scrambled eggs for dinner.
Strange experience. I wouldn't go through this for purely cosmetic reasons (it's expensive and my teeth weren't that crooked) but I had to do something about two baby teeth that were about to fall out. With no adult teeth behind them. So now my mouth is being rearranged!
