I don’t want to sound like I’m special or more deserving than anyone else here asking for financial help. Yes, i have abuse stories and they say that children who are abused, tend to have dental fiascos. I’m another one of those children. Growing up in rural georgia, we could not afford dental insurance. we couldn’t even afford life insurance. it wasn’t until i was in my 40s when i remarried that we got some insurance – 1200 a year – which doesn’t really cover anything other than extractions and that’s what i did. i wasn’t aware that when you pull a tooth, the jaw begins to disappear on you. the other day i went to the “dentist” for a cleaning and the girl was so rough, she cracked a crown. a week later, it fell off in my hands at the gum line. now i’m out front teeth AND a tooth cut off that has to be removed. i have no recourse left. i’m a good person. i do not drink and i do not smoke and i do not do drugs. i’m a product of poor care and stupid decisions in picking people to help me. i am begging for help here. i don’t need to smile and grin for photos – i want to talk. i want to eat a sandwich for the first time in YEARS like everybody else. i want to chew food. i’m not pretty so it’s not got anything to do with my looks. i’m begging those of you out there who can help to please please help me. i can only give an approximate amount and if it’s not enough i will raise the rest in some way by selling off things until nothing is left. my husband is a fireman and a truck driver and we have never had what i guess some call a luxury of money. we have worked really hard and we keep things because it’s so expensive to replace things – we keep cars for 20 years. furniture a lifetime – and we take care of everything. this is something that i take 50% of the responsibility for – but without money – and no teeth – i’m afraid my life will lose more than that 50% of worth. I am a writer, a poet. i am not paid for it but if i can write or help in order to help pay back, i would gladly do that. I’m not going to tell you my abuse story – you’ve read it all before. there are way too many of us out there struggling just to make ends meet – or in this case – i just want the real luxury of eating like a normal person. right now, i’m losing a lot of weight because i’m so afraid to eat. and i already just weigh 99 lbs. i’m not asking for more than i need – just enough to please, i beg you from my heart and soul out to yours – please help me. i will write for you, write poetry for you, or whatever i can do to help pay back the kindness i am begging for right now. please help me. i’m not one to ask for help but i’m at the bottom right now and the light is out. i feel hopeless and worthless and it would be a great miracle if you – you who has enough to help me out – to please – please help me. i will do what i can to repay. thank you for reading and taking the time out of your day. i hope and pray your day is wonderful and i do hope you find it in your heart to help me. i’ve run out of options and money and hope. being hopeless, feeling worthless is a HUGE battle to fight on a day to day basis. please, i am begging….if you can….and are fortunate – please help. you will never regret helping others. your heart and soul will expand greatly by helping those in need. may GOD bless you and may heaven stay in your heart! the only image i would post would be of my mouth and i don’t think the world needs to see that to know it requires help. My husband is having spinal surgery in a week or two – so we have that going on as well right now. it’s more than just a full plate – it’s three plates full. anything can help – and i’m begging for that help now.
