getting closer...

I'm ten days away from braces, and can I just say I'm scared? I've spent the past three days at home sick from the crazy side-effects from the antibiotics (but I just took my last dose, hurray!), and I've really been reading up on other people's experiences, on studies, on everything I can get my hands on....

And, is it completely vain that I'm getting my hair re-highlighted the weekend before my braces go on? It's been a few years since I was blonde, but I don't think I can face braces along with glasses and muddy brown hair.

Yah, I'm vain. So what? :)

hey do whatever helps your self esteem. the only reason i could get them now was because my self esteem could take it. but also be prepared for the inance comments people will make cos those are coming lady... good luck and remember to eat as much hard, delicious food as you can! dried fruit, gum, biscuits, burgers, meat from the bone etc. cos you're going to be living on liquid for a while...

Just wanted to say hello.

Keep your chin up and don't be scared. You will do just fine. Once the braces are on, I found that the changes were amazing. It made it all worth while.

Good luck .

Go for it! And there's absolutely NOTHING wrong with doing whatever makes you feel better/more confident etc. You'll be strutting your stuff out of that office all blinged out and ready to take on the world- just pop some advil/tylenol first :)

The mind is a crazy thing and I think it's normal to get yourself rather freaked out before hand (I know I was a basket case). Try not to stress too much. I guess the bonus is being pleasantly suprised that it wasn't as bad as you thought.... Close your eyes, relax, think happy thoughts...and good luck!
