This picture was taken three weeks after I had orthognathic surgery for an overbite when I was 17.  The surgery didn’t go as planned and lasted 9 hours (7 hours longer than it should have been). My jaw was wired shut for a month and a half and I watched blockbuster movies all day in between doses of liquid Percocet.  I told my mom no pictures because… well just look.  She took this one anyway but not before I could tell her how I felt about it.  #tbt
