I had braces for two years and then got a retainer so I know what you've been through and what I'm talking about
Don't talk about killing yourself, there are some people without access to a doctor for the most basic of things and you were able to get braces, so count yourself lucky!
It's such a shame that you lost your retainer! You shouldn't have left it so long to get a new one, I've had my braces off for over 18 months now, but even so my teeth still move if I don't wear my retainer for just a couple of days - let alone 3 whole months...!
In the UK it costs about £2,000 to get braces privately, in the US that's about $3,500 at a very rough guess. However, it's worth talking to your orthodontist about going private because they are developing new kinds of braces which are less expensive.
If your orthodontist thinks it's fine, maybe it is fine! After seeing your teeth really straight from the braces, any change is likely to seem horrendous, it probably isn't as bad as you think it is.
What stresses me out the most is that in this time. most people get braces so it's uncommon to get teeth like mine and I can't get over and it now I'm afraid I'm
Depressed as I just sit and think about it all say and sit in a dark room alone
No it's just I have always hated myself I cry about all the time I don't want to see a doctor they will just give me medication. ;( I have always hated myself and the way I look I don't really like going out I don't like to be seen I love taking pictures I just look bad in all of them you would think the one thing I could have is a nice set of teeth
