Any one with ideas or resources on low cost or even better free dentures, you could change me and my kids future. It has become impossible to find employment or be in any public situatuation that envolves speaking. It is hard to be taken seriously when the first question any thinks is "how did she get that way" or "Is she still on meth?". I am immediatly judged and verdict passed by the time I get a sentence out, if they even heard me cause they were staring at my one tooth! Would do work exchange or help someone in exchange, like paying forward with what I have to offer. I need to find a place that doesn't require employment or abuse as qualifications.
I am in a similar situation with my teeth and circumstances. I spent a good part of the nineties addicted to meth. My now ex-husband and I became addicted together and breaking up and moving away in 2001 was my first step in a long process that I still haven't recovered from. I was in the process of having my teeth removed for dentures over a year ago. After starting the process I lost my Medicaid and shortly after my Metlife insurance. I have since reinstated my Medcaid, which won't pay for dentures. To recieve this help am I required to go to job search program 36hrs wk, and be actively looking for employment. I would love a job more than air right now, but I have one tooth left right top middle of what used to be a great smile. I have spent the last year trying to get dentures and go on with my life, but I can't make money to pay for them and some of the resources i have found want you to be employed, or abused. While I was mentally abused and stayed home with my 4 daughters for the last fifteen years, ultimately it was the meth that took my smile. I am still looking for resources to help with dentures, but having very little sucess. My kids age from 10 to 20 and they need more from me everyday. My teeth stop me from making any contact with the rest of the world. Teachers, other parents, as well as employers. This will continue to be a growing problem as meth becomes more widespread and the resources are needed to rebuild lives after meth.Too bad I can't find a way to use my experiece to help stop others headed in the same direction, and generate ways to gets my teeth back! Until then I guess we all have to deal with the choices we have made. Any ideas or resources would be helpful. tammy
