I feel a little better, Dear My Friends.

I've actually been under the weather for a few days, but I'm much, much better now. Emotionally and mentally, though, that's another story.

I kind of danced around it here, and wanted to talk about it, but now I'm at the stage where I think, "Oh god, you're being so ridiculous and over-dramatic" so it gets harder to talk about it, and it's embarrassing. But, at the beginning of the year, I lost all my teeth. Well, not lost them like at the grocery store, or between the couch cushions. I've had problems for years, and suffered so much with them, and finally, at the beginning of the year, my dentist said, this is what we're doing, and now, I'm wearing dentures. We're too poor for implants, so here I am, at 64, with no natural teeth of my own. It's hideously embarrassing, and really has a tremendous impact on my life. I know that someday soon I'll feel better but right now, the only way I can describe the way I feel is depression. I'm a little grey ghost with a fabulous smile.


I have so much more to say but not today. Leaving this public because, what the hell, this is me.
