Day 243

"Have you ever had braces?/Will you ever need braces?"

        No, and maybe? 
        I have what is called a class 3 cross bite. Looks like an under bite, but it's really just a crooked jaw bone. My upper jaw didn't develop fully in utero, so it looks like my lower jaw is bigger, and sticks out a little. 
        Unfortunately, the only way to fix it is to have surgery where they either grind down my lower jaw, or try to extend my upper jaw, and in my eyes, it's so not worth all that pain. I am not a vain person, and I've grown to accept my flaws. Because no one is perfect and there are people in the world with much bigger problems than I.
