I am looking forward to reading it.

I would like your permission to add this story and any others that you may write to TheArchive. TheArchive is my personal collection of stories from the internet dating back to the start of the internet. I always try to get permission from the author so that there is no accusation that I stole it. I also ask the authors to send me any other stories that they may have or that they may write, even if they don't meet the guidelines for posting here.

I have been enjoying all the new stories that have been posted lately and look forward to reading more of them.

CHAPTER 5

Over the next week, I search for a speech therapist online.  Since talking is my biggest weakness, I need to get that figured out.  After looking for a while at different therapists, I find the perfect one.  She has experience with orthodontic patients and has an adult-only facility.  I schedule an appointment for next Tuesday, my day off. 

It’s surprising how the simplest, most taken-for-granted actions are now impossible with my braces.  I can’t even go 15 minutes without needing a towel to dry my saliva-filled mouth.  Swallowing is still undoable.  And most annoying of all, any single food particle that gets stuck on my lips, teeth, braces, herbst appliances, or expanders has to be removed by hand.  This is because I can’t lick my lips or gather food particles with my tongue thanks to my tongue cage.  So, I pretty much spend 10% of my time at meals actually eating and the other 90% hand-cleaning gunk out of my braces.

The next days at work are absolute hell as coworkers from the diner incident give me snears and laugh behind my back.  One guy, Mathew, walks straight up to me and says, “I’ve seen braces, but what the hell do YOU have?”  I walk away with my head down because I know I’ll only embarrass myself more by trying to answer him.

Finally the day of speech therapy!  I can’t wait to get my life back on track.  I step into a brightly lit room where a receptionist tells me to wait while my therapist gets ready.  A few minutes later, a woman walks in.  “Hi, I’m Monica, your speech therapist.  What are you hoping to accomplish today?”
I try my best to say something, ANYthing, but as per usual, I sound like a gurgling mess.
She cuts in, “okay then…  we’ll get started right away on that.”
For the rest of the day, she coaches me through speech exercises and different sounds.  But with the tongue cage preventing any necessary tongue movements and the acrylic blocks filling my mouth with saliva, I make absolutely zero progress.  Monica’s reassuring voice tells me it will get better with practice, but I just sigh.  It’s useless.

I like this story a lot. I'm not sure if I missed it or not, but I like how the protagonist's gender is up for interpretation.

Great sotry so far. Both the extensive(!) Treatment time as well as the payment penalty for not following the treatment plan make for an excellent story!
