    It took about a week after I got mine for me to be able to eat everything comfortably. Still can't bite on my front teeth, but that's more because I'm not allowed than because I physically can't. I lived off porridge, soup, spaghetti hoops (hahaha) and raspberries for the first few days. I'm sure things like omelettes are fine as well.

    A few more days, yet. Think yourself lucky that you haven't got to have the brace on all of your teeth where the wire cuts up your mouth at the back.

    I've got to get my second fixed brace soon, on top AND bottom, with elastics, the whole thing. So, I (or will) feel your pain. Also, I just got new glasses, so I'm kind of dreading rolling up at University looking like Ugly Betty. :| Anyway, feel better soon.
    I used to have braces and when the bands break in your mouth it hurts like a *****.
