Emotional Basket Case

If you've been following along with my story, you know I recently got a full mouth of dentures. This process has been less then satisfying. I haven't wore them like I should. As a matter of fact, I really haven't worn them. Today's been the longest which has been six hours so far. I'm trying to keep them in until the adhesive gives.

At this point, most of the pain is gone. I was having bad pain with just placing them in my mouth. But I had an adjustment done yesterday. They feel a lot better. Although I think I may need to go back because I think they need to be adjusted again.

I'm not really sure how to feel about this. I want to look like myself again. But I feel I look different. Like weird, different. I was hoping for so much and I'm scared that I may be disappointed in the end. At this time, I really can't eat with them in.... and that's a shame because it's one of the reasons why I needed to get them. Even soft foods are difficult. In all honesty, it's really hard eating food you can't feel on the roof of your mouth. Drinking liquids aren't so hard. I've pretty much mastered that.

So, anyone with dentures....I have a question... How can I begin eating foods I love? I wanna eat a steak.. but have no idea how I'm going to get there.
