I have been dealing with serious depression back then.
I am now getting better, taking my medication and going to my weekly psychiatrist appointment.
I didnt take care of myself especially hygiene and skipped so much meal. Some of the days I wouldnt even leave my bed for days during my struggling phase.
This resulted in extreme rotting for my teeth. I had removed 3 tooth and 4 more is rotting badly. Some even completely rotted to the root.
The rotting teeth will get removed too soon as I am saving up some cash to get them removed.
Its painful and now its hard for me to even chew food. I need just 1 tooth implant so I can chew food again properly but the implant is pretty expensive.
I cant use the money I have right now to fix my teeth as I am using it to fix my life as a whole.
I wanna fix my life and live better, however my teeth appearance is so ugly and the rotten teeth smells so bad. I lost my confidence to even open my mouth.
I am 22 right, I wanna further my study and do good thing for my life from now on.
I am working as a baker and waiter as part time job.
In this country, I am only paid $1.5 (RM6) per hour. Having to save up about RM6,000 ($1.5k) for a tooth implant is a bit too hard for me.
Tooth care is considered as cosmetic, therefore it is not covered by the public healthcare offered here.
I was diagnosed with MADD (Mixed Anxiety Depression Disorder) and also suffered really bad stomach ulcer from the bad anxiety back then. The extreme painful experience actually caused me decided to live a better life.
My medication (sertraline & clonazepam) is covered by the public healthcare however my teeth is not.
I am slowly taking care of my whole self as well especially hygiene.
Thank you, please do pray for me to be a better person and fight with my depression and anxiety.
