America the beautiful
I know where you're coming from! I had work done on my jaw for about a year to fit it for the braces, so first I wore a retainer and a wire, then an expander that fitted on the top of my mouth and got in the way of my tongue so I couldn't talk (this really sucked! I got made fun of all the time by my kind-hearted classmates), then another retainer, and then I finally got my braces on (big prize!). The braces were supposed to stay on for about a year, but didn't come off til two years later. I also had to wear the rubber bands, which had to be changed about three times a day. So, Lizzie, I don't blame you for wanting to scream--there were so many times I felt like it myself. But they can't stay on forever.

Quick call me a ferry boat-getting out of town!
