Melody's Ortho Appointment

Melody had her first orthodontist appointment today. She did really well and we did as much as we could to reduce her anxiety. The staff there were fantastic and very helpful. We'll be waiting until the rest of her baby teeth have fallen out before we proceed with her braces and possible head gear. We'll be going every 6 months to monitor progress and see how bad her overbite is and that the crowding doesn't get any worse.

I had a hard time in there and had to take some clonazepan. I can't handle the little suctiony thing they use, it sounds just like Ruby's breathing machine. I wanted to bolt so many times and not deal with it. It was so hard and I had to just deal with it and put my acting into practice and fake that it wasn't bothering me. I wish I could get over this hurdle and just function and be okay with it. All in time I'm sure.
