Hi Starbug...

thanks for joining us on the site. It can be a pretty emotional time when you find out you need a brace. For me, at the school screening I was seen by a doctor, then had to wait in the corner while eveyone else got to leave. I felt really alone considering I was the only one in my grade who had to wait to see another doctor.

But, when I went to see the specialists they were great, they answered all my questions and the support of my family was vital, they were with me each and every step of the way.

I didn't speak much about my brace to my friends when I had it, but, I wish now that I did, as I have since heard how much they and their parents were looking out for me and checking with my mum that I was OK. I have a couple of other tips in the trail of notes here.... and bracing was for me, totally worth it.

I hope you will jump onto the forum and let us know how you are. Know that we are all here to help with any questions you may have and any support you need.
