I could have been a wonderful success story. 11 years ago I nearly lost my children due to my drug use. I prayed to God that he not take my kids from me and I would never use drugs again. Miraculously the charges were dismissed due to some technicality. The following day I pack my kids up and moved to a different state. I went back to school and started working. I actually had three jobs for a time in order to keep my family afloat when I was in school. When I finished school I went to work as a medical assistant and was certain drugs would never affect my life again. Then, my teeth started falling out. Once again I am dealing with the consequences of my drug use every single day. I t has sent me into an extreme state of depression and shame. It seems to get worse with each passing day and sometimes keeps me from even leaving the house. Iíve lost my job and dental insurance. I cant get my teeth fixed without income and I cant get income without teeth. We are headed for welfare with no hope to avoid it in sight. Your help would have a tremendous effect on not just me but the lives of my entire family as well.
