Helen's Dental Makeover.
Organized by: Helen Dobies
my fundraiser is to build up the money to be able to pay for the dental work I need done. Literally every tooth u have has broken in some way. I am always in so much pain that I eat like a bird with a very strict appetite. Only that's not by choice it's bc that's what I have to do. I take ibuprofen like it's candy and can not go anywhere without always remembering to have sensodyne, oral gel, tooth brush, mouthwash, floss, etc with me at all costs. There are so many times I cry myself to sleep literally bc even with all those things I still can't stop the pain and irritation. And I would absolutely love to be able to eat my favorite foods again instead of having to turn everything down bc it will cause me pain. Obviously of course I am very extremely self-conscious about how I look bc of my broken teeth. Some are broken completely down to the gum line and others in half and right in the very front on is broken making it look as tho I am missing a tooth, and the two front teeth are about to break the same way. When I was llittle it had taken a very long time for my four front teeth to come in and every Christmas my family would tease me and sing "all I want for Christmas are my four front teeth, my four front teeth". I would get so upset but it was the truth. I still to this day remember the exact moment I was in the car with my aunt for a flower delivery she was making and felt the very first one start to come in and was exhilarated and so excited. I dont hang out with any of my old friends bc I am always embarrased over my teeth and just anxiety takes over and I don't want anyone to see me. For a 22 year old I don't enjoy the things I should be bc I am always so very worried about how I look due to my teeth. Also I do not have dental insurance and even if I could afford to purchase it out of pocket it would balance out to being the same as paying out right for the work I need done. Helping me to succeed at having enough to have my teeth fixed or even enough to start the process would be more than I could hope for. I truly appreciate every penny that is donated to help me with my cause and hope you may find it within your hearts to help me reach my goal. Thank you very much and god bless you all.
