Braces again. Ick.

So I had to go to the orthodontist today.

My regular doc wasn't in, so I saw a guy that works there part-time with him.

I found out I have to get some braces put on my top teeth in December.

I've had temporary retainers (and I say plural because I've lost a couple) on my top teeth for like 2 years now, trying to straighten them out after the permanent retainer I had came unglued so that I can get a enw permanent retainer put on. Well, I've tried several kinds of retainers and nothing is working. So Dr. G suggested that I come back right when I get out of school at Christmas, get some braces put on, and then get checked right before I leave so that maybe I can finally get the permanent retainer. Dr. G said that it wouldn't take long to fix these teeth.

I've had braces before (from July 2003 to October 2004) so I know what I'm getting myself into. I can handle it for 4 weeks, no matter how much it may suck. If they can finally get me my permanent retainer, it's more than worth it. The plus side is that I only have to wear this retainer at nighttime to maintain where my teeth are. Since it's not doing anything, there's no point in wearing it 24/7 like I have been.

I'm going to bed early tonight. I'm exhausted. I had to get up at 8:30. And tomorrow I have to get up at 9 because Mommom is taking me to the Commisary to buy all the food I want for my dorm. G'night.

3 days to Campbell!
