Hi. I am a 36 yr old mother of three and spouse for 20 years plus years. We have three amazing kids! My oldest is 16 and she had grown in to the greatest young lady ever. Jr Is 13 and he is of course a mommas boy. Lol and our youngest is 9. She is our miracle baby. I just about died having her. She was 9 weeks yearly and only weighed 3lbs. Our lives revolve around our kids.
We dont drink, we dont do drugs we take care of them 24/7 and I wouldn't change it for anything.
These fundraiser pages are the neatest things! To be able to reach out and ask for help really is amazing! I thought this was the easyest way to ask for help. I have been dredging going to the dentist. I kind of got tramatized when I was younger from seeing how my mom got when it was time for her to go to the dentist. And I no that's sounds silly, but unfortunately I have the mouth full of rotten to prove it. So I finally had no choice to go to the dentist because I have been in a much pain. Un bearable pain.
So I've been to the dentist and they tell me I have to have them all pulled and get dentures. Which to be honest I figured this is what was going to be done, over half my mouth are of broken and chipped teeth. I with embarrassment will post pictures because I think that is only fair if I am asking for help.
I REALLY NEED HELP!
so I met with the dentist first. And if I want it done right away I will have to have it done in the dentist office, which scares the crap out of me! But to have it done in the hospital I will have to one, get sent out of town to get it and I don't have a car so transportation would be an issue. And two I would have to wait for 6 to 8 month. So I didn't even find out if there was going to be additional fees for the hospital because I would like it done ASAP! So to get it done ant the dentist office I have to pay 180 dollars before they do it. And because I have so many broken teeth they want to do it in two appointment to give my gu,so ant chance to heal before getting the dentures put in. So it will be 180 dollars twice. Which I didn't think was too bad. I would have to do it in two month not one because of the amount but I thought that hey I want this done I'll pay and I was just glad that it wasn't like 500 dollars, I though. So then the next appointment was to go to the denture guy. And I thought this was going to get coves by my medical but only part of it does. And so it's going to cost about another 3500 to get it done right away. And they can't tell me how long it could take to get the approval or tell me how much will get covered if any, because of what the dentist charges may take what I am aloud in the two year frame.
I had no idea it was going to be this hard. And the sad part is that I am only 36 yrs old to have this much problem with my teeth. The doctor says it can be from my medicine that madeven them get so bad so fast. Because two yrs ago maybe three at the most I had nice teeth.
I am so upset from this news and depressed and insecure from having such ugly teeth. I can't smile, I can't talk, I can't be happy with my appearance like this. Which is very embarrassing because I know some ppl have way worse problems then just there teeth.
I am also embarrassed to have to ask for help. My spouse has always worked and made money up till 7 yrs ago when his eye sight began to get worse and could see some but was considered legally blind. Along with many other sicknesses has home ridden him unable to do any kind of work. And even myself has been put on disability because of my sicknesses. Which was traumatizingfor me because even after I had each child I always found work to help pay for our life style. So 7yrs ago we really hit a brick wall and went through the hardest time in our lifes. We have adapted to our situation somewhat, it still is very hard just trying to make sure we have enough found every month.
I really hope and no pray I can get this done. I am so upset trying to make ends meet every month but can't even bring myself to be able to get a part time job to try add to our finances. It would help tremendously just to be able to make an extra 100 dollars able month. But I just am so embarrassed of my mouth what kind of job can I do with out having to talk a blend show my teeth? Not just for that but also for my own health. It just can't be very health having to be on penicillin every month. My gums hurt even more then my broken teeth hurt. I would amagine not feeling very good every day could be coming from the continuous infections in my mouth!
I have been praying to god for help every day and will continue to pray and ask for healing pray at church every week. So this might just be god answering my prayers finding this sight and be able to post and ask for help.
May God bless you all
Thank you for reading my story.
