Braces

Can I just say, having braces must be very difficult if you are between 12-18. It's a p.i.t.a to me, and I am well over 18. I honestly cannot imagine having them while also in the throes of puberty, so for this I am thankful my mother did not make me get them. Every meal is a production, every time I eat something I worry if there is food caught in my teeth, my lips seems endlessly dry and chapped...and this is on a good day. Don't even get me started on when they have to put new wires on, or some other painful checkup.
My orthodontist is great, so that's a big plus, but really, what was I thinking? An aligned bite is nice sure, but was it really that bad? I'm not remembering it being such...
