So today I got my metal bar fitted ready to get my braces and oh my word this us going to take some getting used to! It feels like right now I have this alien object in my mouth which prevents me from swallowing properly, eating and gives me a slight lisp!
I just tried to eat my first meal of soft white fish, broccoli and new potatoes, so I could basically suck the potatoes and fish until it disappeared but I don’t think I will ever eat broccoli again after it got completely tangled in the bar and I had to go look in a mirror to remove it! 😯
I’m actually worried I’m never going to be able to eat anything in public ever again that isn’t soup! Thank god it’s getting colder now so that doesn’t look so out of place! I still haven’t told anyone at work what I’m doing so we will see if they notice the slight lisp that seems to now come out on certain words! Typical I started training two new people today so surely they will notice a difference in my speech tomorrow? Guess I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it! At least you can’t see anything yet unless I do a huge smile but I cant see that happening any time soon!
Now to wait for my teeth to come out and braces to be fitted just before Christmas, the journey continues!
