    I'm 26 and a full time student. I was looking for a career change and started studying Psychology, I have zero confidence, this isn't because of me but my teeth.Believe it or not but I have never missed a dentist appointment in my life, in my younger years I went to the same dentist since I was five, for years I asked to get braces but I kept getting told I would be referred to a specialist this never happened time and time again I was let down, I did think it was because of this particular dentist but he left when I was 17, I then changed to a different dentist and you guessed it, kept getting told I would be referred and still nothing. I have been to numerous hospitals, spoken to different dentists, met professionals who told me they were not the right individuals to be helping me with my issues and now nothing . I've been let down by so many people, it's disheartening, I'm not working at the minute as I'm a student full time. But I'm a gay guy who's shy and never been out with a guy, everytime I speak my thought process is about my teeth. They are cleaned extremely well and I floss but they are not straight by any means and in 2018, it's disgusting that I haven't had any help from anywhere. I've spent a substantial amount of money in travel going to different hospitals that has never been reimbursed and why should it, but no one wants to help and it's knocked my confidence, I don't smile in photos ever and I don't smile at people in fear of what people think. Just needed to vent and see what people think.
