Hi! My names Alyssa,
I grew up in a (nicely put) Traumatic household where some years we’d have a stable household and others where we were homeless.
For context, We didn’t have money for much of anything, barely enough for food. My immediate family made it a thing to act as if everything was okay but truly living the childhood I did, it was the exact opposite of perfect. In the 7th grade one of my front teeth completely broke apart and since then my insecurities have grown upon my smile. Within the past years in high school, I grew cavities that just grew on with the years and turning to rot. I was always told to take pain killers, rather than being taken to the dentist.
I’m currently 20, I’ve saved up enough to get 2 of the 6 teeth taken care of and replaced with implants. It got to the point where I had lost sleep and couldn’t bare the pain anymore. For anyone who wants to know, after years of infection I’ve come to find that the dental surgery costs 5,000$ each set. Even with insurance, that is the final result that I was given to pay. Payments were offered but the problem with that ismy credit score is still a years old and to creditors its ‘at high risk’
In COVID I’ve done my best to work things outday by day but as of recently, the other 4 have been throwing major fits and causing me immense pain as the first time around with the other set.
I hate asking for money, I really do. But living years of having constant dental pain, along side constant insecurity, I just can’t stand it anymore. Any bit helps a ton. I really dont want any pity or any negativity, just some help.
thank you! Have a great day.
