US Veteran NEEDS help

USVet96 started this conversation
Desperately NEED some help. I am embarrassed that it has come to this but I really don't know what else to do. I am a disabled US Veteran and have some serious dental issues. The MAIN problem is that while I was serving in the Middle East I contracted an agent that disrupts my stomach. This causes me to throw up 5-6 times everyday. This has stripped all the enamel off my teeth and has made them very brittle and very susceptible to decay and erosion. No matter what I do they are constantly being worn away. I already have had 6 pulled (including 2 in the front of my mouth) so it is really embarrassing for me. Not only because I am 32, but because the VA does NOT put teeth BACK when they pull them. They claim responsibility because of how I got the problem but they will not replace any of the bad teeth. I am out of work because of my disabilities and as a result have no dental insurance and can't afford to pay for the work outside of the free VA.

This dental issue has depressed me in a way that I can't even explain. I cry all the time because I am embarrassed to even look at myself. People laugh at me and ridicule me and make fun of me. It hurts. I got this problem defending America yet I'm the guy getting laughed at. I can't go out, I can't talk to people, I can't even get a JOB because of my teeth. It's the WORST feeling in the world. I have NEVER felt so helpless and so rejected.

I don't want anything for free. I will work for any help I can get. But no one will even give me a chance. I don't know what to do. All I know is that people should not have to live the way I do, especially when the insults and rude remarks about me couldn't be further from the truth.

Please help. Thank you

Hi, This is Judee A again!
Also, if you are able to refer me to veterans who have come out of the service in the last nine years and who are looking for a new job/career ~ and if they qualify for the program I am affiliated with, I can send you $100 per name! Thank you!

Hi, dear friend. Thank you so much for your service! I am truly blessed by all you've done for our country, which cost you your health and teeth.
I have had extreme dental work done and am missing several teeth, so I understand how embarrassing that can be. I am so sorry.
Contact me at this email: If nothing else, I have an opportunity you may be interested in where you can work from home until you can get the money together to have your teeth fixed somehow (dental implants? I heard there is a place in Texas called Texas Smiles that does implants in one day!!!)
I will pray for you. Please drop me a line so I can see if I can help you in some way!
The company shown in the attached video is rolling out a Veterans program in September where you can become a Momentis Representative for free!
