A CHOICE

I discovered I have bad breath when I was just 13. Since then, it has ruined my life. It’s like I never had a normal life. It’s prevented me from doing what I want to do.

Worst of all, bad breath has kept me from reaching for my dreams. I’ve done everything I could to get rid of this but to no avail. I’ve always worried about tomorrow. It was so bad at one point that I wanted to end my life, but I was afraid to do it. So I just made a choice to live life.

I can't do anything about this. I can't do anything against the people who hurt me and ridicule me, so I just have to move on and thank God I still have good friends and family who love me.

I hope to communicate with other people who have the same condition and let's help each other. I hope somebody can help me get through this.

I'm with you.

This has been the bane of my existence for what seems like forever. I have been where you were. Thinking to end it. Came close too, but hydrogen peroxide is nasty tasting, so I couldnt drink enough. I have a thing about pain. I have good oral habits. I brush, floss, rinse, use nose drops, I even mix water with peroxide, gurgle salt water, and many other things. Even after I seem to get the tonsil stones out, my breath is still bad. I have this nasty taste in the back of my throat almost constantly. I'm at my wits end.My only saving grace is my wonderful husband. Don't ask me how or why, but he loves me, and I need him. So it works. Going to church has helped me with some of my social problems, but I'm still very embarrassed about my bad breath. I've been wondering about having my tonsils out, but what if that doesn't work for me. I seem to have constant nasal congestion as well, which seems to be a contributing factor. All I can say is hang in there..... This too will pass. God Bless.
