Hi im Eric. I came from a horrible childhood. O suffered every form of abuse. I lived in fear of my step dad. One time i was caught turning channel on the tv. My hands were tied to the back of a chair and burned with a bic lighter. I used to suck my thumb. My stepdad put dog poo from back yard and very hot hot sauce and made me suck my thumb til i was sick. I stopped the habit of thumb sucking but i am pretty sure i would have grown out of it. The regular beatings were so bad that more than a few times i would come close to passing out because pain was so intense. Naked and him using thick leather belt. I finally ran away at age 12. I made it to the Fullerton, ca. Police station. From westminster. The police just called my mom and stepdad to come get me. I dropped my pants to reveal red and purple welts from my lower back to backs of legs to behind knees. The police were shocked and wouldnt let them take me i was taken to Albert Sitton Home in the city of Orange which is now Orangewood. Its a place where kids wait for placememt to go to a group or foster home. I ran away from the first five before Bill Steiner, who later became director of Orange County. He put me on his lap and told me he would pick the next home if i can promise to give it a chance. So i did and stayed til i was 18. Then booted out to the world. I fell into wrong crowd and became hooked on drugs. I didnt care about living anyway. But i became a roofer and eventually got help and off drugs. I met a gurl and got married then had a beautiful daughter, Sierra. Anyway all those years i didnt take care of myself and along with the drugs my teeth began rotting away. By the time i turned my life around and had reasons to live, it was too late for my teeth. Now all but four are left and they rotting and broken. These last few years ive become so depressed and miserable. To talk or smile is so humiliating i just want to go to sleep and never wake up. But i have things to live for. I want to write a book on my life.
I need implants. But for upper and lower permanent plants its like 50,000 dollars. So i did research and found in Mexico i can get same implants for like 28,000. Ive tried grants and govt aid to no avail. This is my only hope. Some will say its my own fault and i agree but feel i should be forgiven and i dont deserve to live a day to day life of misery and humiliation. So please someone let me smile again. Please
