Close to being able to smile again
In recovering from my ED, I am okay healthwise but the big casualty was my teeth. And when you are a reporter, it is quite embarrassing to have bad teeth.
So I don’t smile or talk much. I have a reputation for being a good but unsmiling reporter. This year, I decided I was going to do something. At that time, I thought I only had $1,000 to work with my newspaper’s dental plan.
So I carefully planned to have seven teeth removed this year, some other things done in 2017 and dentures in 2018.
Imagine my surprise when I learned my plan covers up to $5,000 in dental each year. $5,000. If everything goes well this year, I will have dentures by March or earlier in 2017.
For me, this will show just how far I have come in recovery. I am taking my life back. And I will be able to smile about it instead of just looking pleasant. If I could yell this from the rooftop, I would. :) :) :)
