I've been struggling…finally sharing

I’m just been really struggling lately. Things could always be so much worse, but I still thought I’d share some details of what’s been going on. Maybe it’ll make you (or others watching) feel not so alone. Life isn’t perfect and we all deal with something!! I’m so thankful for you all though…truly!!!

    Oh, you sweet girl….do I ever understand. Of course I’m old enough to be your grandmother, but I have and have been having horrible teeth problems for about 2 or three years and it is getting worse every day. My biggest problem is that I have had to have a lot pulled and have very few teeth left, well, most of my uppers, but only 4 of my lower ones, and the reason is I have awful, awful reseeding gums that gets worse daily. We are unlucky in that I can NOT afford to have expensive treatment done on my gums…in fact it may be too late now to even do anything about them. The dentist also said that my bone is way too narrow to have implants…the bone is shrinking too!! But, they bleed so badly at night, I too can not eat anything hard, like raw veggies, pretzels, crackers, even most meats…etc. Have to eat soft food, and, yes, by the way, I have and still do take extremely good care of my teeth and have always practiced great dental hygiene (my grandfather was a dentist and so he instilled that in us!!), but I have very severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjogren’s Syndrome and they both can cause reseeding gum disease in some patients, and unfortunately I am one of them. My only recourse is to have them all pulled and get ….I HATE this word…’dentures!!! YUCK!!! But, even that is going to be extremely expensive for us, and I have been putting it off, why, I’m not sure, maybe I dread the whole thought of what that will entail but, yes, I know eventually I’ll have to get it done.
    I could go on, but, Shea, I understand, you are so young and what an awful thing to go through especially at this time in your life!! You have ALL my sincere sympathy and support and I’ll keep you in my prayers that you find a solution that will end your continuing teeth problems… I KNOW how you feel, and even though there are years difference between our ages, my age is old but my mind, thoughts and soul is still young….
    If ever you feel badly and worried, you have every right to, and, like you said, everyone goes through struggles, that is life, but, in your case, I would love to know what happened since your pregnancy that is causing this awful problem….hope you can find the answer….it’s out there somewhere!
    Stay strong, you’ve got a good head on your shoulders and I hate to see you struggling with this.
    Bless you dear girl. You were very right to come on and ask for understanding, we all need support and good for you that you felt you could count on your YouTube friends. Hugs….
