Well my appointment with the orthodontist is on the second of february. And... i have been a thumb sucker until my late teens... which is a little bit awkward... but it also means, that the upper jaw is deformed. my lower jaw has been pushed back over the years so there is a good chance, i'll have surgery. and i'm over 18, so my health insurance isn't going to pay for my braces.
I'm sorry to read about your situation, are you sure there are no places you can go or programs you can turn to, even just a loan?
Moving to a town with myself, 3 of my cats, and me and my other half appear to be "friends" after 2 years. Yay fucking yay. My bank balance is fuller than it has been in many years and all I can think is the lesson I learned as a child, which is that money doesn't solve shit when it comes to problems, love does.
:( Man I'm sorry to read of this, and to find out on here of all places. I'll be around on steam more if ya need to chat.
