Serious Dental Work Needed

My life this past year starting in the Fall of 2019 has been nothing short but a disaster and gut check.  It all began when my wife moved out in October 2019, she left me for another married guy in which she had been having this affair for 2 1/2 years in secret.   I trusted her with all my heart and she misled and lied everyday to me acting like nothing is wrong. Words of wisdom never go paperless with the cell phone bill and just pay it.  Review it the bill at least and look at the phone numbers.... I never thought in  a million years this could happen to me. Trust is a bitter word for me now.... get a paper bill or look over the electronic bill for unknown phone numbers.

So for the past 16 years of marriage , I financed my wife's spending habits and CC bills to no end. I worked a day job and night job just to keep all the bills paid.  Money issues are rough in a marriage.  In the process of working like a machine, I physically and mentally exhausted myself. I neglected my health.  That was another big mistake of mine.  I didn't want to spend money on me because I was thinking about taking care of my wife and not me.    The pressure of it all was tough, I tried to start a business just in an attempt to bring in more money but that costed me my life savings . My intentions were to do whatever it takes to make my wife happy... stupid looking back on it now... when you are in love with someone you will do anything to make them happy.... believe me.. i know...

So now I'm working through the process of splitting up and moving on...  prior to Covid in February/March .. I was seeing a Therapist to fix me.... it helped alot.  I would tell anyone dont be afraid to get professional help.  And no matter the circumstances, your life is most important. So im learning to take care of me again and never to neglect myself.  I have started the process of getting some dental work performed .  Im in need of 10k worth of crowns and another 15 to 20k worth of implants.   I have missing teeth that will impact me getting the sales job that I need.  I have been applying for jobs but no one is calling. I have been working  at gig jobs but that only pays so much.  I'm without medical and dental insurance .... this whole situation is a crap show for sure.  I ask whatever you can give would be helpful.  I promise once back on my feet down the road... i will pay this back to a charity. I believe in myself that better days are ahead in my 50s... no matter what... dont give up on yourself.  I won't get into religion and use that... but if prayers will help you then do it...  ive said mine... life was never meant to be fair.. some have it worse off...  thanks for listening to my story.  Be well... my new story is about to begin...
