Claustrophobic and panic attacks at night from these things!
- Last updated: 8 months ago
I can't believe I did this to myself, I have had them one week, I have been extremely uncomfortable most of the week. I am very claustrophobic in general, but these things are triggering panic attacks in the night. I feel like I can not swallow and am in a PANIC to pull them out. I'm MORTIFIED of going back in two weeks to get the buttons, as I understand it makes it even harder to get out. My jaw is achey all the time. I want them out and I don't want to do this! I can NOT believe how this has affected me. I gave it a lot of thought and figured if my son could go through four years of traditional Braces this should be a piece of cake. .. I don't want to quit but just thinking of 17 trays and the time involved feeling like this makes me anxious. Do I HAVE to have the buttons?... to think that I would have a harder time getting these out than I already to as a result of the buttons has me in a complete frantic stage at the prospect of not being able to get them out fast enough! i really don't know what to do. .. I'm ok with ONE tray in but two is just way more than my claustrophobia/fear of suffocating feeling can take. Anyone else had this happen? .. how did you learn to deal with it.?
