I just got my boston brace. I'm 15 and I have had it for two days now. I can't think about haw bad wearing it to school will be.

it actually isn't that bad wearing it to school. I am 13 and i wore a brace when I was 11. It isn't that bad. You get used to the brace even if right now it feels like you won't. People never made fun of me if that is what you are worried about. Most people are just curious. If you have any questions just ask.
