Maybe for you one more euro won't have any effect on your life, but for me it can help turn my whole little world 360 degrees in a better direction smiley

"Health is not everything, but without health everything is nothing" (philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer)

This philosopher's quote, for today, the whole essence was revealed in my life, it touched the depths of my heart...and that realization comes to a person's life when health starts to collapse, which starts to destroy your whole little world.

It is extremely difficult today to "bare" myself in front of everyone and talk about what I have been constantly trying to "ignore", "disguise", "hide" for so many years, but I will try...

I have a skeletal occlusal anomaly: a larger mandible, incompletely developed

upper jaw, facial asymmetry, painful jaw joints, per

narrow upper dental arch, concave facial profile, more inclined to one side,

chin jutting out, upper lip sunken. The shape of the face is asymmetrical. I came to terms with that a long time ago, I accepted myself as imperfect and somehow "exceptional".

BUT.... The situation worsens over the years: the further I go, the more I can't open my mouth anymore due to wear and tear of the jaw joint. This nuance makes eating even more difficult - it's hard to bite, it's hard to chew, it literally hurts to smile, and visits to dentists cause stress not only for me, but also for the treating dentists. Teeth decay faster, and teeth constantly crumble due to constant irregular friction with other teeth, constant pain in the jaw joint, neck and headache, and breathing problems. The fact that the beginnings of periodontitis have started to develop is frightening: the constant pain in the gums and teeth, bleeding is tiring, so the future forecasts are very sad.

I am only 32 years old and the situation started to deteriorate very rapidly. I would regret it all my life if I knew that I didn't even try to change the situation, maybe to ask good people to help raise at least part of the necessary amount for such a necessary operation, which to this day does not bite me. I understand that my health is my responsibility, so I save as much as I can myself.

 When I was little, I only dreamed of looking "normal" like everyone else, because I still hear the question "why are you angry?" all the time, but now my dream is just to be HEALTHY. The fear is great, but the desire to eliminate diseases and secure a fulfilling life in the future is even greater. No matter how difficult it is to ask for help from others, I decided to apply to VŠĮ "Veido fondas", with the hope and belief that with the joint efforts of me and all good people, I will be able to save the necessary amount. About 13,000 EUR is required for treatment planning and surgery.


After work, whenever I have a free moment to raise money for the operation, I braid and make "Hope" bracelets of red thread, which are made with love and symbolize thanks to everyone who wants to contribute. You can contact: e-mail karolinagadeikyt@gmail.com


Thanks to everyone who contributes at least a little!
