I went to the dentist today and got more than I bargained for, I just wanted my abcessed tooth fixed, but after they did full mouth x-rays, the dentist told me that all of the fillings that I have in my teeth are broken down and I would need 8 root canals and crowns and he told me he could not guarantee them for a year even. (I had braces as a teen and always have taken very good care of my teeth), but the dentist told me today, that his advice for me to save lots of $$ and keep from having frequent tooth aches, etc, I should let them pull all of my top teeth out and get a denture, I almost fell out of the chair
I sat in that chair and cried forever, and then I came home and cried the rest of the evening, I don't know if I am being vain or what, I don't know anyone my age with dentures, I am freaking out and don't know what to do, I probably need
! I can tell you what I wanted to do, in between my crying jags, was to make a big pan of brownies or something, but instead I did Angel Food cake, and I didn't eat the whole thing, that is the only thing positive I can think of about this, is that maybe I won't be able to eat for several days and that will boost my weight loss. Can anyone please assure me this is not as terrible as it sounds to me--I know it could be something really awful, I know I am a very blessed person, but this just really frustrates me and upsets me--can anyone relate, before I binge really big time!
This is what I still look like for now
