    Help, I'm OBSESSED!!
    If ANYONE can help me, PLEASE do so! I had braces for seven years. It's been three years since I had them taken off, and it has totally reshaped my mouth. Now, I have very crooked lips. My corners just don't line up anymore. So, for the past three years, needless to say, I have had to "reshape" my lips by wearing lip liner EVERYWHERE I go. I am just too embarrassed to go out anywhere without any. It really bothers me, because I feel like I have to check my lips after I eat, drink, sweat, swim, etc. I can't afford plastic surgery, and I don't really have any other options other than to stick with my lip liner method of hiding my crookedness. I'm sure there are people that have similar problems, or experts who have good advice. PLEASE help me, folks. Thank you!

    Obsessed
    Hi,
    Have you talked about your feelings with your orthodontist?
    If not, he/she could suggest a group to see, or some professional to talk with about this, as in counseling.
    If you can't afford plastic surgery, I'm sure you don't want to spend the rest of your life feeling like this.
    Talk with a professional counselor, or a support group, through your orthodontist.
    Best of luck,

    Crooked lips
    At least you have straight teeth. Smile a lot... your lips will look straight
