metal mouth.

My orthodontist told me I have to get a new retainer. 
I hadn't worn my for over a year, and it no longer fit [slash was broken].
Ok yeah whatever I can do that.

So I got a new retainer. 
"And you have to wear it everyday for two weeks. Then it can just be at night."
Ok fine no big deal. I don't care. I'm not self conscious! And whats two weeks in the long run?!

Then I realized when I smiled at people I knew, it was closed mouth.
And I did everything I could to speak to them as little as possible
Yet I love talking to people!
"Hello there...Katie? Whoa are you back in high school or something??"
[ok, nobody said that, but I felt it!]

Then came the worst. The pain. 
Its been a few days and I can only eat soft things.
Who knew I'd have to endure the pain braces inflicted on me again!

Moral of the story: 
Wear your retainer every night like your ortho prescribes. 
And if it breaks, get a new one ASAP! 

p.s. vote vote vote! here! thanks so much!

I haven't worn my retainer for 4 years. There is no way I am ever going back to the orthodontist. I'll just take my slightly crooked teeth and be happy about them. :)
