An introduction to my situation.
3 yrs ago I had traveled to England to pursue a career in software engineering and computing mechanics.
One night I decided to run to the he petrol station to grab myself some snacks and juice to keep myself awake and study.
I was walking along the street towards the petrol station when a young bloke had walked towards me seemingly out of nowhere and asked for the time. I of course was like of course so I got my phone out my pocket and as I was about to speak 2 more young guys attacked me.
I did fight back but it was 3 against 1, they grabbed me and placed my jaw against the he sidewalk curb, and proceeded to kick the back of my skull and my teeth got shattered in the process.
I went home and tried t it make a police report, they did nothing. I had tried to get a dental appointment to be seen, yet still nothing. I was seen as a foreigner in England for the time I was living there.
I tried so hard to get help, I had no family I could tell and no friends at the time of when it took place. I was scared, alone and felt lost.
It’s been 3yrs since this happened and my teeth have gotten so bad since that day that I have adapted to speaking down low or speaking in the opposite direction as people talking to me or even as far as to cover my mouth with my hand.
I’m 20 yrs old I will be 21 in less than 2 weeks.
I’m going to be a dad next year this may. I’m scared, I’m ashamed and I feel like there’s nothing I can do to be able to smile for my (hoping for a little girl) but my iether son or my daughter.
It’s breaking my heart to even think about it. I’m on such a low income already and just cannot afford any sort of surgery (I would say repairs but I honestly have nothing left to repair..)
I’m not sure what I’m looking for out of this, all I know is I need help desperately.
I want to be able to smile and laugh and not be. In constant pain, I want to be able to work and be confident, I want to laugh properly, I want to be o be able to wake up brush my teeth and give a big smile to my son/daughter and my family and my partner who has been immensely supportive of my bad teeth and even she has tried to help.
I wouldn’t have made it this far without certain people, but now it’s got so bad that I don’t think anyone can help.
I guess that’s why I’ve came to you guys and girls to ask for advice or help.
My name is Lee, I’m 20. I will be 21 in 2 weeks. I will be a father to an absolutely amazing service n or daughter next year in May (estimated). And I can’t even show how happy I am about it.
I’m not sure how much it will cost as prices are different everywhere I look but I don’t want or need expensive work done, I just need my smile back. I want to smile and show how excited I am.
