Before this illness I was very energetic and had self confidence to spare. Some of the sad realities of this disorder are that I no longer have the energy needed to to most of the things I enjoy including performing, and my bones and teeth have weakened.
I am looking to raise 1/5 the amount I need to fix my teeth. I need extensive work done quoted at about $50,000. Just last week I had to have my front right tooth surgically extracted, dramatically altering my smile. This illness has taken away so much from me. Now it has quite literally taken away my smile :( Please help me smile again. (being able to enunciate to sing again would be the icing on the cake :) )
Also as a side note, I am doing all of this with out medical or dental insurance. My tooth extraction was a bit complicated due to the fact that the tooth had both a horizontal break beneath the gum line and a vertical break that went beyond the root. As of right now the immediate work that needs to be done is 3 root canals and a bridge. I have already had a bone graft done. Just the removal of that tooth and the bone graft was over $1500. I also have a bad case of TMJ and will need surgery to correct the alignment of my jaw and bite.
