    :giggle Made ya look, heh?

    So I just got braces last week. And, my mouth is NOT liking it!!! It feels like someone took some sand paper and rubbed the insides of my mouth b/c the insides of my cheeks are so sore and irritated. I just wish it would begin to feel normal again. :groan

    Ok, just had to say that. :whoopdedoo

    Carry on.

    Aww :( I know the pain. I cried when I got mine and felt like a new girl once I got them off. Hopefully, the soreness and irritation will ease up for you soon.

    Did they give you some of that wax stuff ? That helped me tremendously when I had braces

    Yes they gave me the wax but I ran out so had to make a run to Target I pick up some more. It definitely helps but I'm trying to toughen up my mouth so to speak lol! Just don't know how it's ever going to get used to them by wearing the wax because as soon as I forget to put some on, it starts hurting again. It's like I have these little blisters from the braces rubbing on them.

    GAH! I hate dental work and I can't even imagine how badly you're hurting! I'm hoping you start to "thoughen up" soon!

    Thanks girls... it's been tough. I went in today to have them fix a wire that started peaking out of the bracket since my teeth are already shifting. I can totally feel they're shifting too, and it's a very weird / unnatural feeling. It is getting easier, as they say it takes about a week to get used to.

    Oh I remember that feeling even though it was ages ago! Keep lots of wax handy and take some tylenol or advil! You really do get used to them after awhile and probably won't need the wax after a few weeks. Adjustments can be a little painful, but even those get easier.
