A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (May 2015-August 2018)
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?


97. Brace Face Ahoy!


11th January 2016

There are photos of me with perfect teeth. Straight, pearly whites contained in a cheeky grin. That was before something went wrong and at two I got them all taken out. Ever since then I can remember having a gap in my two front teeth of about one and a half centimeters. Ever since then I have had comments such as having a tooth missing and the like.

Last week I finally got that gap fixed.

It turns out that my jaws are the wrong way round so to speak. My bottom jaw is far bigger and far forward then needed and my top jaw is farther back than normal. That’s left gaps in my teeth even though I have them all. The braces will fix the top jaw but if I want my jaw fixed it’ll have to be broke and forcefully took back in an operation. That’s a few years down the line yet.

For now let’s talk about braces! Yay.

On the day I was worrying myself into a pit so much so that in the fifteen minutes of waiting for the doctor my foot was a drum against the floor. Sorry man sitting next to me for that, I’m sure that was annoying. I didn’t have much to worry about. The procedure didn’t hurt as I thought it would and it only took half an hour anyway. The doctor put the glue on my teeth, stuck the metal squares on my teeth, put the wire in, and put the bands in. I was happy.

Until I got home.

Then it actually hurt.

An annoying, niggling pain like the most horrendous toothache (well, duh) that would not be ignored. I couldn’t eat anything but soup and that was just painful. That carried on for about four days. I couldn’t sleep because of it, I couldn’t concentrate on anything else but the pain. God. It only today, the fifth day that it’s almost gone and manageable.

I’m waiting for a year to come so that I can look in the mirror and no longer see that gap.

That may be well all and good but for now I have to cut down on my sugar intake and all of the like to make sure that the braces are in their selves healthy.

No more coke and chocolate for me.

Well, rarely anyways.

I’ll survive. It’s only good for me after all.

But I’ll still miss them.
