Braces are...

Braces are painful. They hurt more than my bike accident. Advil, Ibuprofen...nothing is working. They stop the pain from the accident, but my teeth feel just the same. My gums are bleeding and it is such a pain to eat. I'm having to mash everything up to the consistency of baby food.

I read the instructions the dentist gave me which stated that I shouldn't eat bagels, candy, whole fruit and raw vegetables. Those foods are pretty much my diet. I eat lots of fruit and now will have to cook my apples to mush before I can eat it. I better have a gorgeous smile when this is over because I miss bagels already.
