My name is Michelle. I have no health insurance. My full time employer doesn't offer health insurance. I make $100 too much for Healthy NY.
It's all but killed my self esteem. I know that when people look at me thats what they see. When I smile people make that face. That 'Oh... ewww' face. Please help me look like me again.
It's not just a self esteem issue. It's also becoming a health issue. I keep getting oral infections that swell up my face. They say that if it reaches the bloodstream that it could make me very sick.
It's heartbreaking knowing that there is something really wrong that is really fixable that I can't afford to fix. Please help me.
