My dirty little secret - Jo's story about bulimia teeth
My name is Jo, I'm 24 and from New Zealand.
I developed bulimia around 3 and a half years ago and as a result the majority of my teeth are completely yellow.
I am so ashamed and embarrassed... my mother spent 5 grand on my braces, 2 grand on extractions and I spent just over a grand getting my wisdom teeth removed, my teeth were virtually perfect... then I developed this disease and have RUINED my teeth. My two front teeth are so see through and have little lines, I look in the mirror most mornings and cry.
I was bullied and ridiculed at high school for being over weight, turned to food for comfort and next thing I know I'm purging every time I eat!
I love this website because I can really relate to you and what you're saying...
I don't know how the heck I'm going to afford to restore my teeth however... I made an appointment last week and that alone is $100. Hopefully I can sort out some kind of payment plan... 'cos it isn't going to be cheap!
Hope my story finds you well.
