As my first appointment is being made next week, if all goes according to plan, I figured I might want to start a journal thread..
I'm so terrified of not knowing what's going to happen and not knowing what my options are going to be. That right there is probably my biggest fear right now.. just not knowing.. at all. And I'm scared there's nothing that can be done and I'll lose all my teeth.
Money is also a serious issue. I have a little over $1,900 to put towards this (thanks to a Great Aunt's investment when I was a child) and once that's gone.. it's going to be extremely difficult. I'm afraid the $1,900 is going to run out way too fast and leave me not even half-finished.
I try really really hard to think about how happy I'll be once it's all over, but I feel like that's who knows how many appointments and thousands of dollars away. It's such a dark and unknown road. I do realize that it's going to be beyond great to have it done with and not looming over me anymore.. but right now it's a huge struggle for me. I'm just so scared.
I'm sorry that this is a pretty sad first entry, and thanks for listening.
