Female, Little town in the middle of nowhere New Mexico, USA, 25 years old, braced for the second time on March 7th 2007 (the first time was when I was at the beginning of 6th grade) with traditional metal braces - upper and lower.

I like this topic... will give me a better idea of who I am talking to (sometimes it's so hard to figure out online... I often make the mistake of calling men "she" or vice versa :oops: hopefully this will help lol)
