Actually, yesterday was my 48th day in braces, and it was quite uneventful braces-wise. What a contract from the first 48 hours.
While I still can’t eat high-chewing factor foods, the braces impinge on my life so little now. I even had dinner tonight with a friend whom I hadn’t seen since acquiring my metallic smile. I guess I hadn’t even told her about them. Just goes to show that we adjust pretty quickly to such changes. Self-consciousness about braces is pretty much out the door these days.
