I have to agree with you here Angel. There is absolutely NO GAIN in capitalizing on the negative. The ONLY thing that has kept me going is all of the positive comments and hope that this message board brings to the plate. I am still experiencing a lot of pain and it seems that my dentist cannot hone in on the correct areas of adjustment. But I only received my denture on 12/16 of 2011. I have to have hope that things will become immeasurably better, as I want to live a normal, accomodatable life with what I have been dealt.Steve: The name of this forum is CHEER UP NEW DENTURER WEARERS - I have read and reread your posts and still wonder what your point is. We are trying to get past the pitfalls that you keep shoving in our face to read .... It is a very discouraging process for us and to have you keep ticking off the list is just rubbing our faces in it. I do thank you for the link to read .... but I think after that and posting your information you could have stopped there and either offered some information to help someone who is encountering those problems, or stated that those were the problems that you were experiencing and hope that someone's experience could help you. You are going to age, with or without dentures, if you are lucky. Everyone does it differently.
I try to concentrate on all of the "success" stories so that I can move forward. It is TOO LATE to lament the loss of my upper teeth. TOO LATE. So no point in going back. I MUST look forward by decree. I am so heartened by the success stories that I imagine one day I will be one. I can't go on without that hope. Simply cannot. So Steve....I hope the journey becomes bearable for YOU. Because I need that. I MUST HAVE IT. I think that your bad breath problem is resolvable. I have to believe. I consider Angel and Sorry brave soldiers in this fight. Because they hate it...but never give up. Sorry makes me laugh and Angel gives me strength. Take heart in that. And hope that we all can move through this process. And emerge as success stories. Somehow. Someway.
Love to all. Hope to all. I will not give up. Yet.
