Hello, and thank you so much for stopping to read my story.
Before we get started, I just want to say that I recognise the fact that there are a lot more desperate people on here that are in awful situations and probably need or deserve your money more than I do... But I just really need help, and I'm so grateful for any donations that you guys can offer me.
I guess I'll start at the beginning...
My mother is the most beautiful, extraordinary woman I could have ever asked to raise me, but unfortunately our family is made up of under 10 people that are all struggling to survive on the little income they have. We have never owned property, and we have never been comfortable or spent a week without worrying about how we can afford certain things in life.
Furthermore, my mum was petrified of the dentist so never took us when we were younger, meaning that by the time I was old enough to go to the dentist by myself, it was too late. My teeth were pretty much ruined.
Even though I have worked 1 or 2 jobs at a time since I turned 16, 5 years of university (BA and MA) has wiped away every penny I have earnt ... Not from drinking (I don't drink) but from buying my own books and Laptop and commuting from Maidenhead to London so that I didn't have to leave my family and my jobs, and paying my own rent and buying my own food...
Now I only just earn enough to pay my bills and commute to work... it's a never ending cycle of struggle, even though I work so hard...
In terms of dental work that I need done... I need 4 fillings and a crown which can be done for £250 under the NHS, but I need one dental implant, as I have a missing tooth 2 teeth down from the front of my mouth, but this will cost another £1000 or so.... this is ruining my confidence, and causing me a lot of pain, so I'm desperately calling on your help. I 100% cannot afford this work, and I just really deserve a break from crying over my lack of money and my pain...
