Ouch, I'm soooo sorry! I don't know where you live, but often times there are dentists that will do work for free. Maybe talk to the local University or maybe the DSHS office? I am not a doctor or nurse so I can't offer any medical advice. It sounds like you may be ready for dentures. I've known a few people who had them and they loved them.
I HATE dentists! As a child I had many teeth removed because my jaw could not afford all the teeth that were growing in. One time they ran out of the gas. That sucked!
BTW...Where is the art???? I need to see more paintings!
