My Teeth Are Depressing Me!!
Hello Everyone!!It is so nice to have found this group.I am now sitting here at my computer crying while trying to write this,I have had problems with my teeth my whole life,My mom and dad always made sure i went to the dentist and got whatever procedure they said I needed done.Flash Forward to now.I will be 40 in 2 months and my teeth are in Real Bad Shape!!I They started getting worse and worse in my early 30's and now they are so bad that because of the embarrassment of them I lost my job a few years back.I have always worked never been without a job sense I was 17 years old.When I lost my job I thought I was gonna die for sure.I could not function at work or any place else it got so bad thinking about my teeth all the time.I made pretty good money for a single girl but,I took care of my Mom and Dad whom were both ill and could not afford to get to the dentist a lot.My mom grew sicker with Scleroderma and died and I started to see losing my job as a gift from above.I got to spend real time with her before she died.She was a good Mom!!My Dad is still with me,Thank God!!He is a and always has been a good Dad.I am blessed.After mom died I just drifted further and further into this depression.Losing her plus my teeth being so bad has made me not want to leave the house.I am in pain a lot because of them and they are so bad i do not smile anymore or go out in public cause I think people are staring at me.I have had people make fun of them and I use to joke about them too when they would,To try and hide my pain and hurt.But I cannot do that anymore!!They have made me a prisoner now.I am searching for a cheap dentist to get my teeth removed(I will need Oral Surgery)Because they are broken off down in my gums.I want to get Dentures.And hope I can find a dentist that is real cheap or will let me make payment plans.I want my life back.I just cannot take people making fun of me about my teeth or asking me what is wrong with them.I have even had people say I must be on drugs for my teeth to be this bad.And I Do Not Do Drugs!!My dad had very bad teeth as well as did his whole family pretty much.I am so glad I found this group.Because now,I feel like people finally understand what I am going through!!!I I will pray and continue to pray for all of you.That you all are able to get your teeth fixed no matter what is holding you back.Thank you all so much for letting me get this out!!Many Blessings too You All!!
