I'm Heather, mom to 4 kids, and blogger extraordinaire. I'm very
social, I love to make people laugh, and I love food.
But I have a problem. When I was pregnant with my 3rd child, my
teeth got VERY sensitive. Since then, they've only gotten worse. It
hurts to brush, use mouthwash, drink anything that isn't lukewarm,
kiss my husband, and open my mouth to talk when it's cold outside.
I can't eat normally because after eating a few bites, my teeth
start to hurt so bad that can't chew. I went to the dentist once to
have them looked at, and they were so sensitive that even the
Novacaine didn't take the pain away. I couldn't make it through the
exam, and he said that I have to go to an oral surgeon who can put
me under for dental work.
The worst part is how embarrassed I am. I hate meeting my kids
teachers, I hate going to social functions, I hate smiling, and I
hate that my teeth look like this. Even more, I hate when I'm out
of commission for days at a time, and can't take care of my kids
because a toothache is so excruciating. Or the thought of getting
an infection and dying.
I'm looking for a hero to help me out, but I have a couple of
options. I'm willing to travel up to three hours for dental care.
I've looked into places around here, and they want an extensive
down payment that I can't afford. I can barely pay my bills. I
would love if someone could find a dentist within 3 hours of me
that would be willing to donate their time to help me smile and eat
again. I can't pay money, but I run a blog that has about 20k
readers, and I could do an excellent review, and provide
advertising for them. Alternately, I'm looking to start a fund to
cover some of the expenses of fixing my teeth.
I know that everyone is broke right now, but I all I ask is that if
you can't help out by passing this on to a dentist, please share it
on Facebook and Twitter, and ask your friends to do the same. All
it takes is the ONE right person to see it, and maybe, I can smile
