I just confirmed that I’m going to need six crowns on my front teeth. My history of bulimia and the vomiting caused by my chronic migraines have worn the enamel down to the point that it’s just a matter of time until a tooth breaks. I’ve been using prescription toothpaste for over a year, and the damage is progressing. To add insult to injury, insurance won’t cover a goddamn dime unless or until a tooth actually breaks. Never mind that the dentist says I’m out of options and that this is literally the only course of action. So now I have to figure out how to pay an exorbitant amount of money. Or just break my fucking teeth. Fuck this.
