wow it sounds like they tried 'everything' on you! if you don't mind me asking, what was the worst part of the treatment for you? I've always thought a Herbst looks very uncomfortable but as you pointed out it requires less 'co-operation' so you just have to get on with it!!

For me, the high-pull headgear was really the worst part. As you said, the Herbst was uncomfortable but didn’t offer an option. Just had to go with it.
But to go out every day with the headgear (even when I was younger and it was relatively normal) wasn’t really fun. And even when I was further in the treatment and only had to wear it at home/during the night, I didn’t like it at all  ;D
I personally don’t really understand all the headgear fanatics here  ??? no offense  :D

I have braces at the moment and I’m so insecure about them

I can understand being insecure about having braces, especially as an adult. I didn't start my treatment until I was 21. At the end of the day, no one really says anything and you're in pursuit of a perfect smile, so who cares. Smile with confidence!
