1 Year Braces Anniversary!

So I was looking at the date today and realized that today is officially my one year anniversary in braces! Woo hoo! One year down, and one (more or less) to go!
If I'm to be honest it really has gone by rather quickly. Not as fast as I would've liked, and of course not as aggravation free as I would've hoped, but considering what we have accomplished in the last year it has definitely been worth it. So on that note....I would say I highly recommend it.

So, I also went to my Naturopath the other day. This is the Supplemental Protocol she gave me to follow prior to, during, and after surgery. I will also be having some MLD treatments, and 24 hours before surgery I will get a nutritional I.V. and perhaps another one 24-48 hours afterward also. I also found this really cool Basket of Supplements for before and after surgery. They are kits that provide all the suggested supplementation by Dr. Wright, but they come with powdered supplies for those on a liquid diet. I'm definitely going to get one, but thought I would share the wealth with all of you too!

    You really have been through a lot, especially with your RPE, I think it was called?
    This may sound weird, but I've actually had a lot of fun with my braces. Seriously.
    Should I seek therapy for that?
