Look up opperation smile. Go to a free clinic. I have been a widow for over 2 years now, and I've been disabled for nearly 11 years but still couldn't get any help, unless I muddled through cleaning someones house in exchange for room and board. This is how I am getting by now. Use what you know and what you have got to do what you can. I ask God to help me so he put me with this kind older gent,
that treats me like I'm his daughter. I keep the dishes and his clothes washed, I cook
for him, and I straighten up his messes and mine when we're finished making them.
He takes me out job hunting and to help him clear his two properties the way he wants them done, so I am earning my keep. At 54 with lupus, endometriosis,spinal
Hernia(2 herniated disc) and kindey mal functioning, I'd say I am doing ok for myself.
I would still rather get a job doing what I love, but until our broken ecconomy is fixed,
I might be stuck right here with my friend that acts like he's my dad,

My whole life I have felt ugly. I rarely smiled, and had very little self-esteem. Partly because I thought I was so ugly that no man would want me, I was in a relationship with a man who abused me until I escaped and went to a domestic violence shelter. With the help of counselors, therapists and a psychiatrist I was able to get into school and get a degree and to lose over 100 pounds. But while I have started to gain self esteem and confidence, but still have trouble with this.

I have always dreamed of having a pretty smile and to have my teeth fixed, but I am unable to financially afford cosmetic dental work, even though I don’t know if I would need much work. I know that there are two dental schools in NYC, but still they are expensive for me. I don’t know if my whole life would change suddenly if I could get cosmetic dental work, but I desperately wish I could just feel comfortable being able to smile, and I think it would help my self-esteem so much. Thank you so much for your help and for listening. April
