Thank you for taking time to read my story. I am a 36 year old woman but I feel like I’m 90 at times. I’ve battled multiple serious illnesses since 2012, underwent several surgeries, and spent months in the hospital. Unfortunately, some of the strong medications I received long-term damaged my teeth terribly. I stayed so sick from mid-2015 until the end of 2017 that I dropped down to 110 lbs. (I’m 5’7″). I also went through a time of constant vomiting (14 months), which contributed greatly to the extreme tooth damage. I have a broken front tooth; I cant smile anymore. I have 4 molars that are either broken in half, cracked, or have huge cavities. The jagged edges cut my tongue constantly and I’ve never had sensitive teeth but Oh Man! I do now…ouch!
I am desperately seeking donations to pay for dental surgery that will both remove my badly damaged teeth that hurt constantly, and replace them with permanent implants. The thought of dentures at my age literally brings tears…I’m too young and will hold out as long as I can if I have to go that route. I’ve always taken care of my teeth but the damage seems to have eaten away from the gums down and started inside the teeth. Unfortunately, it took a major toll in a short years time.
I feel as though I’m rambling, but I’m new to all of this online fundraising and cant believe I’m actually posting. I’m the one that usually reads and donates but I am desperately seeking any kind of help to fix my teeth. Please help me get my smile back.
I am asking for $12,000 to pay for implants to replace my missing teeth. I miss being able to smile when my daughter wants a selfie with me. I want to laugh when I hear a joke without covering my mouth. I want people to quit staring at my mouth when we talk. I want to be able to actually eat food instead of depending on juice, cereal, and other soft foods. I just want to be the confident woman I once was.
If you’re still here, thank you again for reading my story. For those that feel led to donate: THANK YOU!
