Turning Lemons into Lemonade
Try to turn your bracing experience into a positive journey. Just think, when you bump into things where your brace is, it does not hurt since you hit your brace instead. You also have an instant table to write on when you take it off, and you can open straws really easily against it.
Another plus is that you will always have an excuse for new clothes! If you want to disguise it, loose and flowing clothes are the best because they does not stick against your brace! Sometimes, my friends forget I even have it on until they bump into me. Then, they feel my brace and say, "you have a hard core!"
