WHY AM I CURVED? This is the thought that popped into my head when I was 15-16 years old. as a teenager, when I went to consult an orthodontist about staples, I received the answer that staples will not help here and that when I reach adulthood I will have to deal with the issue of surgery. Tears rolled down my cheeks that day, my mother and I went to a cafe and I just left these thoughts for the future.
I have been an adult for 9 years. During those years, I finished my bachelor's degree, worked as a physiotherapist, volunteered at the "Youth Line" for part of this year, changed cities, worked again, obtained a master's degree in child rehabilitation and got married. And when the tip of the canine tooth broke off, I remembered myself. I discovered such abilities in my mouth as sticking the tip of my tongue THROUGH my clenched teeth, I realized that in reality, I never consider them bitten, because it's uncomfortable. I concentrated, I started consulting, I hoped that maybe during this time new opportunities appeared and I would not need an operation. OH BUT. HOWEVER. Either I spend my whole life sculpting my decaying teeth or surgery. I mean, could we call it an opportunity to choose?
I decided to start the path of orthognathic surgery. Physical difficulties are worrying, but I believe in my body - I am strong, physically active and strong-willed. What scared me the most was the amount of 13,000eu needed for the operation of both jaws (not including orthodontic treatment before the operation). I myself have a strong calling to help (I work in the field of child rehabilitation for a reason), whether it is a small patient, or his mother, or just a sad stranger, or someone who needs urgent help, or a lost and uncomfortable newbie at work, or a student with which I can share the knowledge I have (I teach at a college).
I work, I will try, and at the same time I believe in miracles. It's easy for me to help, and I'm sure it's not hard for most people either.
Thank you for your kindness <3
