Please Help Me Pay For What's Broken
Please help us be able to fix these things.
Also, I still need funds for my teeth. I am now in Cleveland and I have a set of dentures that don't fit anymore and need replacing. It is still a long process ahead. I'm going to the dental school at Case Western Reserve University, and the costs for three implants and dentures are about $12,000- out of pocket. The funds I received in 2014 went to UCSF's dental school and helped me get to a point with several cavities being filled, but the loss of all my top teeth has been devastating to a certain degree and the repairs that Case can do will be life-changing.
The ability to take photographs for people is in my hands and I am willing to do portraits of people for the holidays, or for forward thinking people, maybe romantic boudoir photos for their partners are more in line with what is worth a large donation.
I don't say it in the video, but I don't feel humble about how far I've come...I dropped all opiates and have successfully stayed off, no matter how bad the pain.
Invisible illnesses can destroy a life while people around have no clue what you're suffering through, but I feel emotionally stronger and more stable than I've done in ages.
Still need massive amounts of money to fix my teeth - and that's the only physical thing I want for a gift for the holidays. There's others, but they're only things I can bring about.
When I'm at my appointment next week I'll get a full print out of my exact costs and I'll be posting that.
Today also marks day number 37 of being (even after a tooth pull!) completely off any pain killers excluding over the counter things like aspirin and acetaminophen - and those are taken only once a day and only sometimes. I have to boast because it's a huge accomplishment in my eyes.
If you haven't checked out my videos on YouTube or my previous posts about the state of my financial situation coupled with my medical situation, please feel free to check out this link which will take you to a page that has a lot of these things linked.
There are a lot of worthy causes in the world, I completely understand that, but I definitely need help and while it's humbling and embarrassing - that's not necessarily such a bad thing.
In other words, Please.
