About a week ago, so I guess around two weeks post op, I was at my friend's house and I was sitting in a chair next to a couch. At first there were only a few of us there, but then someone else came and sat down on the sofa directly facing my side. It was such an incredible moment. He sat down and I knew that he could see my profile, but I realized that this is the first time that I can remember that I didn't have to worry about it. Before surgery, I would've cocked my head to face him more directly or have been uncomfortable. But this time, I just smiled, knowing it will always be like this. It was amazing and I'm so thankful.
There's this bar that I go to a lot with my friends and I remember that within the week before my surgery, I was sitting at a booth with my friends and I saw people looking over from the bar. Their view was, of course, a direct view of my profile and I was miserable about it. I hated how bad it had become bc of my teeth being straightened and just couldn't wait until the day when I wouldn't feel this way anymore. I can't wait to go to that bar for my first time with my new profile.
Drinking with a straw is really hard because I can't get a good amount of pressure on it. I also bump into my front teeth which worries me. I also hit the roof of my mouth which is still numb so I don't know if I'm hurting myself.
