All I've ever wanted was some decent teeth

Well basically long story short is I have lived my entire life with crooked teeth and have never been able to afford to alleviate that problem. I have always worked I have always helped out my family, my mother or my sisters. Out of high school I went on the road truck driving so I can help pay moms mortgage and other bills. Most would assume I should have been able to save money doing that and believe me I tried my money went to bills and mortgage. I made anywhere between 300 and $800 a week and it was always very sporadic with that industry. The only reason why I did it was so I can help out with bills it made me very unhappy it was never the career path that I wanted. After a while I didn't want to do that anymore and wanted to go back to school so I am now back in school about to take the core requirements for a database application development degree at APU. I work as well. I ask for more hours to no avail. I have asked pretty much every family member for help through Facebook to no avail. It's very hard for me to get the money for a down payment because obviously I would have to make payments on my issue. But I'm just tired of living with it I have no confidence, going to have to have some face-to-face interviews when I look for a career pertaining to my degree. I have always felt very uncomfortable and I would love to know what it feels like to have a comfortable mouth. I have never been able to smile in any picture or at least smile with showing teeth at all ever in my life. I would like to have decent teeth because I would like to have more confidence and be able to be myself which would help me out more along the way in life. I don't like saying it, but hey it brings on unhappiness constantly knowing and feeling the teeth in my mouth how they are. And also knowing that there's absolutely nothing that I can do about it because I just can't ever afford it no matter how hard I work no matter how much I work or how much money I make it's never going to be enough is what it feels like. Unfortunately for me I just don't have anybody that can help me out and this actually is my final resort of attempting to get something done with my mouth so I can feel better and look better. I'm tired of having this on my mind, I'm tired of staying indoors, being afraid to look at people in their eyes, afraid to smile, being afraid to take pictures and just overall always having this issue. I have never admitted the way my teeth really make me feel until recently because I ran out of excuses as to why I'm not wanting do much of anything. People say it's all in your head and I have to agree it is literally in my head, the teeth I'm talking about they are in my head particular. And to be honest with you it is horrible to have had to live my entire life to this age and still have it like this all because of the lack of money and I have worked since the age of Sixteen and I have lived on my own since the age of 16. So if there's anybody out there at all if I can have one angel in my life ever please help me.
