Week 4 in review
WOW, that went really, really fast. Ohhhhh 28 days done, 900 more to go !!!!!
Okay so my mind goes from.........
WOW this is crazy, why would anyone do this, I look like an idiot, how the heck am I going to do this for 2.5 years. NUTS This is totally nutty. OMG I am going to have these for the family reunion, OMG I am going to have these for the wedding we have to go to and the family reunion .....OMG .... I have to answer the door, I look like an idiot, OMG, my husband wants to renew our wedding vows for our 10th anniversary, OMG I am going to be a "bride" in braces OMG I say OMG way too much, Does he really want to renew our vows. OMG I am going to be in a lot of pictures with braceface
.......or my mind is....
WOW this is sooooo cool, wow I think they are moving, OMG they are moving!, are they moving?, I think they moved, huh that's crazy fast, wow maybe I won't need them for 2.5 years wow what if I am a totally unique person and they say I only need them for 6 months, wow that would be cool, not going to happen but cool, wow I am negative, What if I think more positive, got to think more positive, but don't want to think positive and get upset when it does take longer, Wow they have moved. You can't really see them in pictures so maybe no one will notice. Why do I even care what people think, who cares what people think, I am very blessed to be having braces, I should be more appreciative. I can be a bride in braces, we have been wanting to renew our vows for our 10th for years. I can do this, I can do this.......
Yes I am crazy, but that is really how my mind is always thinking, it drives me crazy. I am very happy to have braces, I have wanted my teeth to be straighter for a long time so to be in this a month already is amazing. To see movement in 1 month is wonderful. To think in a few months or couple years my teeth will be straighter and will no longer bother me will be really really cool. I know this will be worth it and I am having fun blogging and reading peoples stories. I even like, I know I said like the feeling of biting down on my loose teeth. GROSS!! Progress
-I can see that my upper wonky tooth
has moved and could very easily be inline in a couple months. WOW that in itself makes me very happy.
-I have now become obsessed with seeing my lower teeth straighten out
I went into this thinking my lower teeth and my overbite did not bother me but after seeing pictures and seeing how bad it was getting I realized I needed to do this and I needed to do this now.
-I can close my mouth
so much better than DAY 1, day 1 OMGWHID (oh my god what have I done) aka... (oh dear god what have I done)
I can close it probably as well now with braces as I could close it before braces maybe even a little bit better
- My confidence
with them has gotten 99% better, I don't care as much (most of the time) who sees me or if people notice them.
Even though I can over think everything and get a little dramatic over nothing, this is going to make me very happy and I am so glad I started my new smile process. I am very grateful for ARCHWIRED and the people I am meeting on here
Thanks for your support and reading my rambling!!
