Worried for nothing.

I'm 34 and I have been needing dentures for quit a long time, never taking the advice of my dentist's and just doing repair after repair to my teeth and living with pain day after day, A car accident 10 years ago really screwed up my mouth and the partial I had for my 2 front teeth couldn't even be held in my mouth because my back teeth were decaying away from hairline fractures throughout my mouth during the accident. So about 13 weeks ago I took the step of having the remaining 10 top teeth in my upper pulled. I decided not to go with a immediate denture and to wait the 6 weeks for the healing process before I got any impressions. When I went in for the impressions they said they wanted to make my bottom partial first which had 2 teeth per side for my back molars on bottom..
So I thought to myself ok more time to wait and i'm on my way to a dreaded life of dentures.. over the next 6-7 weeks I was reading many forums on dentures and many horror stories on how it was the worst decision etc etc. I sat here worried how I would look if I would ever smile again if i would ever eat again, how everyone would notice I had dentures.. Well today is Monday and I went and got my denture on Friday. All I have to say is I was worried for nothing. I absolutely love them, I haven't stopped smiling since I got them and it feels good. The first day was kinda difficult with the gag reflex as I spoke but it slowly went away over the weekend and have had nothing as of today. So I decided to try some adhesive powder because it did rock some when I was eating soft foods. I have to say what a difference it is with the adhesive powder. It doesn't even feel like there in and only 4 days after receiving my dentures I took my family out for a steak dinner.. YES! I ate steak 4 days after receiving them.. Something I haven't been able to eat in years.
So to end my ranting and raving don't believe everything you read. It might be the best thing you have done for yourself as it was for me.
Couldn't be happier
