Hi everyone. I am in a desperate state of affairs. I’ve lost numerous teeth over the past few years due to teeth breaking off to the gum line and dental disease. I’ve come to the point in the last few months that I am having extreme difficulty eating food. This is due to fact that I don’t have any jaw teeth to chew with. I’ve lost 70 lbs in the last year mostly due to the extreme difficulty of chewing food. Therefore I skip a lot of meals.
I need to raise enough money to be able to go to a dentist and get full denture implants. Both upper and lower dentures.
I have been on disability pension for the past four years. I have suffered from anxiety and depression for the past 25 years. This forced me out of the workforce and onto disability pension after working for 20+ years. I am not receiving enough to live off much less pay bills. I am living way below the poverty line at $12,000 a year. When rent is $800 a month you can see I’m indire straits.
It takes a lot for a person like myself who has a lot of pride to have the strength to reach out for help. And if I had family that cared then I wouldn’t be here begging. But unfortunately my family cares less. All four siblings ostracized me four years ago after my Dad passed away. I still today have never been given a reason why. My mom passed away 7 years ago. It would hurt anybody to be cut out of the family. But toss in anxiety and depression into the mix and you can see how difficult it is for me.
I know a lot of people simply don’t care. Or people have their own financial problems. It difficult during this pandemic for all of us. These are unprecedented times. It is very stressful for all of us. But some of us are in dire straits. I know there are numerous people out there that do care. They understand how difficult it is for some people. People who find themselves in difficult financial states for no fault of their own. Then things like major dental issues are thrown at them. How can I or anyone else in a similar situation cope or handle this situation? Well if they are like me they let these dental issues slide and ignore them because they can’t afford them. But unfortunately for myself it’s caught up with me. I gotten to the point where I am having tremendous difficulty trying to chew food and eat. I mean eating is essential to life. Smiling or a good smile is a side benefit of having good teeth. But for me it’s the ability to chew and eat that’s most important.
I don’t have any dental insurance or a good paying job to afford the high cost of dental work, appointments, and dentures or implants. I am hoping that some of you can find it in your hearts to help me out with getting the dental work done. Thanks in advance for any donation. It is greatly appreciated my friends. Take Care and stay Covid Safe.
