Help me repair my teeth
Organized by: Chris Auzston
I am a disabled, senior citizen with a variety of serious medical conditions, and live on a severely fixed income. I live with my partner who is also a retired disabled person. After putting it off until I couldn't do it anymore, I saw the dentist today who tells me I have to have two teeth extracted, need up to 3 bridges, and between 3 to 5 new crowns. My bank account is emptied very quickly every month for bills, rent, etc. I have absolutly no idea how I am going to pay for this dental work to be done. After I got home today from the dental office, my depression problem soared. My credit sucks, living on a fixed income is quite the challenge for anyone. My family is not an option, we haven't been in contact for a number of years. The flimsy dental insurance that I got only recently will only pay part of the cost I need to come up with, and the amount I need to find is my portion of the estimated bill. I feel totally embarassed and humiliated to admit that. With this new challenge of a huge dental bill, I feel at a loss as to what I can do. The first tooth that needs extracting is a front tooth. I can only imagine what I wiil look like after that happens so I am looking at any option I can to raise the money to pay for this dental work. Someone suggested I look into crowd funding as an option and here I am. I hate asking for money, especially from folks I do not know, but if you are so inclined as to help me out, I will be eternally grateful for anything you can contribute.
