I was born with Cleidocranial dysplasia.
My parents never noticed anything. To be honest neither did I. I know it wasn't normal being 12 and stil not having teeth. I could tell by the way people and the children in school always made jokes about me. I grew up a bit different... I never knew what feeling pretty felt like... I never knew how it felt to be popular and having everyone as a friend. I ate my lunch in the bathrooms, I bunked school or I was always sick just to stay at home. I was bullied. I always had excuses not to do speeches in class I was the quiet one. The one wishing everyday could have been the last day. The one blaming herself and comparing herself to all the pretty girls.
Teachers started seeing me as a problem child. My parents then decided to put me in homeschooling. We went to see a doctor. At that time the doctors didn't know what is was that I have so they sended me around they did x-rays. But never have they seen anything like it before. Back then it was a very rare condition. My jawbone was never fully developed before birth. I cant stop growing/developing teeth. But because of the way it frowns they struggle to come out so I had 16 extra tooth that they had to cut out. I was 13 years old. At 15 my mom and dad went through a bad divorce. My dad left us and my mom couldn't afford to take care of all of us (we are 4 children ) so I moved to my aunt. I never finished school. I then met a guy who I thought was my true love.... we moved in together and he turned me into a house wife. After being together for 3 years he started treating and beating me up. Locking me up in the bedroom taking my phone with him while he is out with friends. I had nowhere else to go so I stayed we were together for 7 years after trying to kill me several of times and treating me like a slave I got away. I moved out of town I got myself a job with the little bit of knowledge and experience I have. In my spare time I do extra waitress work. I feel ashamed about my condition. I thought this through long and hard before deciding to involve anyone. I'm embarrassed to talk about my condition and to ask for any help.
I'm to proud and wanting to do everything on my own and by myself made me realize I'm to hard on myself and working 2 jobs will never get me the money that I need.
So I am asking everyone.... if you can help me I would really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.
