I totally understand the no smiling/no confidence thing. I don't think people can really understand the importance of straight teeth unless they don't have it. I've always been the kind of girl that people say "you're pretty but..you need to smile more". I just never smiled in pictures and tried not...

I'm really sorry to hear you're having such a hard time. I don't have a palate expander, but I'm sure it was quite a shock to have that AND your braces to get used to at the same time. Keep the faith. You'll get used to things. It's amazing how the body can adapt. And you should be concentrating on...
