It's official

I did relapse, but the surgeon is not suggesting another surgery. He thinks splint therapy will help my pain. I know this but what I kept telling him is that I can't afford a splint and that my insurance company sent me a letter saying that they will not cover it. I did cry. kind of a lot. but I went through so much to get this surgery and many times the only thing that got me through the day was the thought that this pain will be over soon. now I don't have hope. so what now? I'm 25 with completely messed up jaw joints (they have ground down to points instead of the healthy ball-and-socket joint deal) and I'm supposed to go another 50 or so years in this much pain?? how?? Sooo depressed and hopeless...but at least my doctor is taking care of making sure I get a splint.
