Everyone at College knows I am toothless and I went back
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 02:29 PM by corarose
I go to a small private college (I will owe out my butt after getting out of there)in Chicago.

We have about 300 people in our College and everyone and I mean everyone knows about me loosing my teeth.

The b*tch that was homeless and came up to me for a place to stay for a few weeks let everyone know when I told her that I couldn't keep her anymore and I wasn't being a bitch. It's the rules of my building and I had to take my Dad in until I can find him senior housing. I have a studio and my Sister is staying with us right now. I had to tell this woman to go.

She went back to the College and went to all of my classes and told the instructors that I couldn't come back because all of my teeth were removed. She also passed it along to the students.

When I went back on Friday one of the guys that I started College with who's mother owners Maria's Restaurants in Chicago came up to me and told me that Naomi had spread the word that I was toothless and he said that is how she put it.
I am a volunteer teachers aid at the college because my grades are above average.

I keep going in for fittings on my teeth and I can't get them for another two weeks and I am going back tomorrow and I don't give two shits about them knowing now.

The instructors are my age or older and I don't care because they are behind me.

I will wear a baseball cap so that I won't be noticed but the college is so small I practically know everyone and people passed me on Friday when I went in to see the head Chef about coming back and they all kept looking at my face.

I don't give a damn I am going back in the morning.

IF YOU WERE ME WOULD YOU PULL NAOMIES WIG OFF IN FRONT OF EVERYONE OR FORGET ABOUT IT?

1. You have nothing to be ashamed of
I wish you well.

Just remember in about 40 years all those people will either be toothless too or have a mouth full of caps.

I think teeth were only really meant to last for the 30 years that was the usual life span of stone-age humans.

3. The woman that spread the rumors is 40 & she can't cook
I am not joking either. I volunteered two days a week of my own time to help teach her how to bake and she passed the class with a D-. She glazed her Cinnamon rolls before putting them in the oven and she did it over and over again.
She has asked me If I am sleeping with one of the Chefs because he gives me A's. The man is married and has 4 kids and outside of College I don't know him.
I think Naomi has a problem and I want to help her but not any more. I have several other people that I have been assigned to help but I hope that they are not like her.

2. Okay...let me get this right...you are toothless...did you pull all your
teeth out of anger or because you are insane? I recall meeting a mere boy about 25 who had all his teeth pulled and had 100% dentures. And so the shame is?????????? I don't get it...and so the shame is?????????????? :shrug:

People have peridontal disease all the time...and again I ask ...and the shame is????????????? :shrug:

Are bald people to be faulted for being bald??? :shrug:

5. I had some bad teeth in the back of my mouth
One of them cracked off because it had a double filling in it from years ago and it had silver(?) fillings. I had an infection start in the root and I needed to go to the dentist.
I couldn't gather up the funds to go to the Dentist because I have been on disability for 8 years.
I made an appt. for the dental college and I couldn't get in for 4 months.
The infection turned in to blood poisoning and I ended up in Northwestern Hospital.
All of my teeth had to be removed two weeks ago.
I am 40 years old and I don't have teeth but I will be getting some next week.

4. You have NOTHING to be ashamed of!
years and years ago, I worked with a young woman in her early twenties that had all of her teeth pulled. She could not afford to take off, so she was back at work with no teeth. She made a joke about it and when she got her new teeth - she proudly showed them off.

Forget about Naomie - pretend she doesn't exist.

6. Don't bother with her
This little "town crier" spree makes Naomi's mouth look ugly, not yours. Don't people realize that this sort of thing reflects badly on the messenger?

On second thought, do the wig thing but have someone take a picture and post it here. :evilgrin:

7. How is losing your teeth a bad thing? Cheating, violence, stealing,
lying, child abuse, elder abuse... THOSE are bad things. THOSE are things to be ashamed of. Losing your teeth is a health related issue and has nothing to do with what kind of person you are. So she can just fukc off.

YOU are a good person with a REALLY WIDE SMILE right now darlin. Not a damned thang wrong with that. And you're almost THERE! Two more weeks to GO! How awesome is that? You're so close to eating steak again! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!

You rock, corarose. don't let mindless twits get in YOUR way.

10. Congratulations
on making it through a tough time! You are an exceptional person to have not only done it, but kept your focus on your family and your education -- the things that are truly important -- at the same time. I'm going to remember your example the next time I run into hard circumstances, and hope I am able to come through it equally well.

11. The woman doesn't deserve to have you in her life in any capacity.
Anybody she talks to who knows you both will make their own decisions. Lose her.

12. 2003 Was a horrible year for me but I am much better now
1. In 2002 our house was foreclosed on, my baby boy cat died right before we lost our house and my Dog died the month before that.

2. 2003 We rented an apt. went through an eviction with a crazy landlord which stole everything including my Dad's WW2 stuff, my moms ashes, my Dad's bibles which I will never hear the end of, all of my clothes, my mixer, pots and pans, TV's, computer and well shit everything we owner. Last but not least all of my culinary equipment and books.


3. I would have been kicked out of College because I owed some tuition but a couple of people from DU helped me and I can't think them because I lost there address after my apt. was robbed by the landlords son who was arrested for stealing everything.

4. I lost my teeth but I am not giving up.

I ALSO LOST 145 POUNDS SINCE LAST YEAR!

27. It sounds as if you have been through hell, corarose,
but everything is just turning around for you. Don't give up now, nor dwell on the past. The life you want is just barely out of your reach. Just keep your ``eyes on the prize'' and keep putting one foot in front of the other. You are going to reach your goals. I am so sorry for your very bad luck, but you really do have the mental fortitude to do this. The worst is nearly over. You know you can come to DU when you hit a momentary roadblock. You also know that DU is behind you 110%!!! Ignore this troublemaker, hold your head up and get on with your life. You are going to make it! You have proven that you are strong enough to weather the bad times. The good times are within your grasp! I care, as do your other friends on DU! :-)

13. You may - and I hope - receive compassion you never expected
So give out some undeserved compassion first and see what comes back.

And I'm very inspired by your courage and strength.

16. Know what I hate?
That society makes us feel ashamed of this in the first place. I used to smile all the time, but with half my teeth gone, and no 2500 on a bridge to replace them, I have learned to just live with it. Sure dont like it tho.

When I notice folks staring at the gaps in my mouth, I just grin real goofy and say "Ain't I cute?" Hey, 6 yr olds look cute without their teeth!! Why can't I? :D

Your "friend" will get what's comin' to her. Jealousy becomes no one.

17. I had two teeth out on the side of my mouth in the back
I use to tell people that I was in a bar fight and I got them knocked out by another woman.

It was a joke but I got a laugh out of it.

We need healthcare in this country but the right wingers don't think so.

24. Everyone knows that she wears a wig
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 06:18 PM by corarose
It's obvious and she can't cook and I am not being a bitch the instructors told her that she needs help or she can't make it. She just threw away her help because no one else is offering to help her.

25. It's not a disgrace
to lose teeth. I'm missing a bunch of mine. In fact, a loose one fell out Wednesday. Makes me feel old, but in a lot less pain. I have 6 teeth left on the top, and missing the front teeth on the bottom. So I don't smile much. But I'm getting good at tracking down bargains on soup. Now to figure out how to get a candle in my head for Halloween....
Naomi sounds like an ungrateful airhead. The wig thing is up to you, but she sounds like someone not worth wasting any more time or effort on.

26. Don't pull her wig off.
It soulds like it would be the very thing Naomi would do. The last thing in the world you want to do is be like Naomi.

I would avoid her at all costs.

28. If you feel that way, do this first...
Shave your head and don a wig. Then if you still want to pull hers off, at least you'll have some measure of your anger and your compassion.
Or just step into her mocs and be glad you're not walking in them.

Sure it's awful to have lost all your teeth so suddenly. Your whole body is outraged on some level about that. But it's no reflection on you; exposing someone else's imperfection, that would reflect on you. Don't do it.
Take that high road.

29. There's no need for retribution
You can't help what's happened to you. It's a medical thing, like the life-changing medical things that happen to us all eventually.

I suspect that 90% of the people she told empathize with you, and the other 10% are heartless bastards who you don't need in your life anyway, so to hell with 'em. This trial will eventually pass; don't protract it by adding something else to it.
