Extreme Pain: Wisdom Teeth Removal

My Story:

I am a young working mother without proper health insurance. For a while, I have put my health on the back burner to support my family. Since March, I have been experiencing terrible pain all through my face. Sometimes the pain is so bad, my left arm and fingers start stinging.

The dentist told me I need to have my wisdom teeth removed A.S.A.P. The top two wisdom teeth are already broken. I kind of already knew that much. When I received the estimate the situation became stressful. The estimate was what I make in a month. A toothache is harsh. Everyone knows when I am hurting, they tend to run and hide.

My whole attitude changes, my mind and body literally shut down. Sharp pain constantly shoots through my ears. There are not enough pills in the world to live off with a toothache. I have to sleep with a heating pad and oral gel every night. Sometimes I don't even want to wake up. Receiving some help would keep my family on the right track. I would also be able to stay focused and continue to better myself for my family.
