I will be 40 next month, i only have 18 teeth in my mouth and none of them are good, i have dental insurance, which at this point means nothing because all the work i need far exceeds the insurane. I work full time, care for two childeren, both of my parents and my husband, I fill i have a raw deal because where I should be able to afford things like dental work i get to pay to keep my parents alive all extra money goes for prescription.I (we) make to much for state help. but not enough for credit. with out some type of help my health will only get worse. and i know if i had good teeth not only would i feel better about my self i would be able to eat better which would inturn make me feel better about life. right now i don't smile, i don't go out, i don't meet or talk to people. i just don't get involved not even with school functions. please help i work hard trying to do the right thing for my family.

I am in so much pain I really don't think I can stand it. I have taken everything I have been able to get my hands on, including Percocet and Darvocet and I have been on antibiotics for 3 days now and there is no relief. I went to the discounted dental clinic this morning and waited in line outside until the place opened. They usually take the first 5 people who get there before they open for emergencies like the one I am experiencing but today, they could only take 3 people and I was the 4th person in line because I got lost on the way to the clinic. I am in so much pain that I really don't know how I am going to get through the day. If I thought I could actually withstand the pain, I would attempt to pull this tooth myself. I know that is not a smart thing to do, but anyone who has experienced this kind of pain, knows how I'm feeling.
I have read all of the messages that people have left me and my heart goes out to all of you. I have not found a remedy for not being able to afford dental care and I am so tired of waking up to pain and not being able to eat that I really just don't know how to cope anymore.
I think about all that this President is trying to do to get all of us that are uninsured and not able to afford medical coverage and I wonder if anyone is thinking about how important dental health is to all of us. I would love to have medical care, but honestly, I don't ever remember being in this much pain for anything that has ever been wrong with me that a doctor can treat. I don't even remember the pain of childbirth being this painful, and it definietly didn't last this long.
So, although I have no answers for anyone or any ideas to help me or anyone else, I want you all to know that I do read these posts and if I can figure out anything that can help me or anyone else, I will be sure to post it. In the mean time, I just hope that tomorrow when I go stand in line at the discounted dental clinic, that I am on of the people they take to treat. Otherwise, I really don't know how I am going to survive this pain. As you all know, when you have an abscessed tooth, you can't eat and it is even difficult to drink fluids. God be with us all. Hopefully, someone will come to our rescue with a solution for our dental problems. I'm still searching and hopeful, even though I am in more pain that I ever imagined possible. Hang in there everyone. I'm going to try and figure something out for all of us. There has to be a solution to this problem. There are too many of us out there that can not get help. And, the problems we are all having with are teeth, will eventually become a medical problem if we die from infection. The whole thing is just sad. I care about you all and hope someone will care about us too.
In Kent on Meeker and State there is a community clinic and they do dental on a sliding scale. They took 60% off for me. If you go Monday mornings early they have an emergency dental clinic and they'll let you pay $5 or even nothing toward your bill if you need help.
I suffere with fibro as well. Not fun at all... I'm working on disability.
Wish you well.
ok i found out in april i have breast cancer..heres the deal i have no income , no insurance and no way to pay the $ 45,000+ in medical bills i have piling up ...i have tried state agencies with no luck..hell i cant even get SSI as they dont think i am disabled...well i do even if it is temporary!!so to hell with them....so stopping short of doing some "cardboared advertising" on the closest street corner i thought i would try here once again.....im not asking for anybody to pay the $45,000+ in bills just asking for any kind of help ....im 31 and way too young for most help alot of programs offer (but not too young for cancer??) huh hows that?...anyways anything would help thank you for reading this blabbing page.....
I find it very hard to belive you were turned down for disability. Are you talking about social security disability? If you were turned down you have a chance to appeal also you can get a lawyer who deals in only this field. You need to look on the web site for social security disability and follow the instructions to apply. Good Luck
I would just like to find out if anyone has any new and updated information on my request for dental help. My earlier post stated I needed desperate dental work. I am a cancer survivor and after treatment I developed fibromyalgia which leaves you in pain about 98% of the time. Taking pain med and chemotheaphy damaged my teeth from the inside as well as the outside. The result, they are breaking off and I have developed infections one after the other. I do fear for my heart as repeated infections can cause damage. I also suffer from bipolar disorder which doesn't help any of the other problems, just makes me worry more about what to do and fear that I may have a manic attack and do something stupid. On the other hand I do find myself slipping into a deep depression and fear another trip to the hospital, which is impossible as again no health insurance. I do not like being this way and in the past have worked so hard at trying to maintain a productive lifestyle. All I need is the path to lead me in the direction of finding help to get the issue taken care of.
Thank anyone who has input!
I am a wife and mother of 4, In the past 2 years my husband has had 8 heart attacks, and is no longer able to work, we are trying to get him on disability but have been turned down , now we were told that his case was drop because they never heard from us, I know this is not true I have tried over and over again, But anyway, We are so far behind on our rent, and other bills, we are fixing to lose our home and move into a shelter for the homeless, the only thing is that they have also told me there is no room. We need Finiacial help despertly, I am willing to do just about anything to help pay this back if you can help us get back on our feet. I do work but half my pay goes to medical insurance and the rest for medicines.
There are a lot of people who are mentally changelled, I suffer from bipolar disorder. One day I'm great, next I may be the psych ward. I take meds to control it all and I must stay on them. Are you getting any treatment? It is up to you how much you want to do with your life as to how well you take care of your self. God will never give you more then you can handle. Stand-up, take a deep breath and start living. Everyone deserves to be happy. To start, join a talk group on the web and become positive. Learn all you can and share your information. Call the local crisis line and find a support group. No one should ever be alone. You need to put one foot in front of the other and take baby steps, just a little at a time. God Bless and Good Luck
