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!!!

    I’m so sorry that you’re going through this. I get nightmares about my teeth falling out and I don’t have teeth issues. Your problems are so incredibly sudden and severe that it MUST have some sort of trigger. Hormones in pregnancy cause issues but 9 years of it so far is crazy. 😢😢😢 I hope you can find a solution soon. Because you deserve to not be in pain and be able to eat normally. You have every right to mourn the loss of not having a healthy mouth, no apologies necessary.

    Okay, so I know the odds of you reading this are slim….but… hi Shea, I’m Katlyn , a fellow Pittsburgh youtuber . I vlog about lots of chronic health conditions, and I used to work for a local oral surgeon….so I totally get what you are going thru. I watch your videos all the time, and I commend you for speaking out about your problems. You’re right, a lot of the time it seems like you aren’t human, that you have the perfect life , that we all are jealous of. Seeing a flaw makes you human. It’s brave of you to speak out about something you are clearly self conscious about . I’m sorry that there are people out there who love to stab at weight. I have Lupus as well as some other diagnoses, and the medications I take make my weight change a lot. I used to be 100 pounds, and people would tell me to go eat a cheeseburger. Now I’m 165, and people tell me I’m “brave”. They don’t realize there is a reason , my medications. It’s totally beyond my control. It used to hurt my feelings, but sadly it turned me into “fat Amy” from Pitch Perfect , meeting people and moving into the conversation that I’m chubby and I know it. People , especially when hiding with the internet, say very hurtful things…. I am happy to hear you don’t take it to heart. Also, dental problems are serious, so i’m glad you got help right away. Sadly, root canals don’t always work and can do more harm than good, what makes me happy to hear is that you have a good endodontist and oral surgeon who are on your side! Don’t worry about the cosmetic view of it, you are beautiful and would be without any teeth. This is probably sounding super ramblely at this point, but I just wanted to tell you that you are not alone. I’ve seen patients absolutely ball their eyes out after hearing they need a tooth pulled, let alone how many you have had. It’s normal, sadly these days vanity is everything. But, you are happy and healthy and have the confidence to pull off anything. So stay beautiful, stay kind, and don’t let anyone make you feel bad for your health problems. Trust me, easier said than done, but what people don’t realize is that most of the time, we have absolutely no control over what our body does to us. I hope you figure out the root cause of what is causing these oral health problems, and get it under control. I’ve seen many young, beautiful women who have to have a whole mouth extraction, and come back in for their postops with dentures, smiling like the sunshine, happy as can be to feel their best and be out of pain! Good luck to you Shea- Signed a big fan, Katlyn AKA Superloopiewoman
