I wrote a post nearly a year ago about my braces story. I spoke about what I had to go through in order to get the teeth I have now and how I felt through the various stages of the process. Along with the dreaded braces, I have been blessed with bad eyesight - meaning my look through school was very "Ugly Betty"-esque. However, do I think it's made me the person I am today? Most definitely.
I've been wearing glasses for about 10 years. I remember the day when I couldn't read out the words on the interactive whiteboard in Year 3. One day all was fine and the next, I was sitting in the opticians chair trying to work out what the letters said on the board ahead of me. Then I was graced with some snazzy new specs! Unfortunately, I am unable to both: remember what ones they were or find a picture of me with them on. I recall them being the wire thin ones and they were pink! How lovely.
I don't think I would ever of avoided the glasses problem since most of my family members all wear them, I just wish I didn't have to start wearing them at such an early age. But like I said previously, they have made me the person I am today! Trust me - glasses aren't always fun, having to shower with blurry vision isn't always great, but hey - at least I get to rock some fancy new shades every now and again!
