Hope... Sorry you're having a problem speaking. I guess I'm lucky because I'm not having a problem with my speech. But when I was younger I had to wear a retainer for quite a while and I probably got used to talking with a plastic palette back then and my mouth just remembered...
But I know how frustrating it is when the folks at the dentists office say that it takes time to get used to living with dentures. They're not in our position. So how can they really know.
Ariom... Your big day is almost here.
I remember how much I dreaded my day. And to make it worse, when I got to the dentists office I was 15 minutes late and they told me that I wouldn't get my immediates that day because I was late. So I chose to come back the following day because I didn't want to got a day without teeth. I had to go through that stressful drive to the dentist 2 days in a row.
But it's all behind me now. And I guess it's like childbirth. After it's over, you're so happy that it's behind you, and you have something beautiful to show for it that you forget the stress and pain.... Then the period of adjustment starts. It's quite a journey.
Jackie, aren't grandsons wonderful?
I have 3. They are 20 mos, 4 yrs and 9 yrs old. And they are the loves of my life. But I would sure love a little grand-daughter to dress up.
Hubby and I moved here to Nashville from NYC about 2 yrs ago. And I miss my daughter and grandchildren so much.
They will be spending the summer here and i can't wait. I'm already planning our outtings.
We had to move out of NYC because they passed a law banning exotic animals. And we had a small primate rescue for many years. And rather than give up the monkeys that we raised as if they were our own children, we decided to move to a place where they were legal. My son had already moved here. So we came to Nashville. It's very nice here. But I am so homesick all the time. Maybe I should be glad that I'm having to spend so much time getting used to my dentures. It's taking my mind off of being homesick.
Have a great weekend ladies!
