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.
