So emotional 😭

Maybe it's the holidays, but probably not since I had my upper teeth removed a week ago tomorrow. I cry everytime I see myself in a mirror and whenever my husband of 25yrs looks in my direction. 

I have an immediate denture here, but they didn't put it in after the extractions. I put it in the next day but it wouldn't go on all the way over the stitches poking out. Hurt like crazy, and looked ridiculous so I decided to wait for the stitches to dissolve and some swelling to go down. I'm just so sad & miserable, I can't even speak clearly enough to call the denturist & ask what I should do.

Searching around online I found this group, at least I'm not alone.

Thanks for reading.

That sounds miserable. The first few weeks are worst, in my brief experience. (I've had full dentures for about two and a half months,) It truly does get better, I promise.

I don't know what you should do, but I wanted you to know that someone is here and listening and thinking of you.
