5 months of braces

This is just a quick post to mark 5 months of braces which was on Wednesday 31st August. It only seems like the other day that I was writing my 4 months post, so I'm glad it seems to be going so quickly. I won't bother posting any pictures because the ones in my last post were taken just a few days before my 5 month mark.

I started my new job on Thursday. Nobody's said anything about my braces...not that I expected them to really. Eating has been ok because so far I've eaten my lunch outside so I haven't had to eat in front of my new colleagues, but I will have to soon. But as long as it's not something I bite into I think it should be ok. Also the sink in the toilet is in the actual toilet cubicle, rather than being a set of sinks like in public toilets, which is good because I can spend time cleaning out my braces after my lunch without fear of people walking in. I still can't wait til the days when this won't be an issue, but it will be a very long time until I can just eat anything I want.

  1. When I first had my braces, and after I'd had them tightened each time, I'd have to cut my food up really small regardless of what type of food it was, and I still do it now just to keep my braces cleaner. I get some very strange looks in the crew room at work while I'm cutting up a chocolate brownie or something!

    I'm always prepared with my toothbrush and that little brush they gave me, but I wish my work place had a cubical sink!

    How far in to your treatment are you? I read what you have to have done -its quiet a lot!!
