I had a bonded expander for 9 months and it was extremely hard to eat and talk for the first three weeks.

I had a removable bite plate. I had it for about 6 to 9 months, I don't remember exactly.

Headgear, elastics, lip bumper, 5 years.  But it would not have been 5 years if I actually wore the headgear. 

then 5 surgeries, having my jaw wired shut once for 6 weeks.

I had a twin block appliance for a year, and had to wear it full time (although I must confess I didn't wear it for meals that often). Despite this I liked the appliance.

Not sure how "crazy" it is but I wore two zig-zag finishing elastics for about the last 6 months of treatment.  With each hooked on 7 brackets it was very tight and almost like my jaw was wired shut.

I wouldn't say crazy, but I was only informed I was getting headgear as my orthodontist got the mouthpiece and headstraps out. I walked out of that office in headgear into a full waiting room, a truly frightening experience.
