I don't expect anyone to reply to this but I just need to vent as I'm in the middle of having a breakdown. My teeth are literally ruining my life. I never thought I'd have so many problems with my teeth. It started with having a gap as a child and needing braces. Then after my braces came off I had white spots on my bottom teeth that I became insecure of. Then I had to get fillings in pretty much every tooth. Now, a few years later, I'm dealing with severe bruxism and I’m in severe pain (realizing that I've probably cracked some of my teeth) and crying my eyes out. Not to mention my gap came back after my retainer decided not to fit anymore so getting braces was a waste. I also have moderate gum recession. I'm so so tired. I need to tell my parents that I need to make an appointment but I'm so scared of having to get more work done on my teeth. I don't have a fear of the dentist I just don't want to have any more work done. I'm only 19 and dealing with this many teeth problems is just ridiculous. I can't even smile because I'm so insecure and hate my teeth so much. I'm just done. I never thought it would be like this. The sooner my life ends the better. That sounds dramatic but that's really just how I feel. I'm just tired and the thought of all the work I need done and the money and everything just exhausts me. Rant over.
