While reviewing the list of our debt, my ADHD spouse decided to hone in on his opinion of the reason we are in debt is the balance we still owe for my new dental partial. He then proceeded digging into the past to REMIND me that my bad teeth were caused by my eating disorder - which I have been free from for OVER 20 years.
Funny. . . .for all the years I thought ALL my dental problems were caused by eating disorders, I recently find out I had bad teeth to start out with, and though they were impacted by the eating issues - I ALWAYS HAD bad teeth. My 23 year old son has bad teeth, which he inherited - this info came from our dentist - from me. No amount of brushing and flossing and fluoride treatments and dental visits every 6 months keeps the cavities away.
It's not about my teeth. - But that's where we ended up, with the focus off the issue at hand , and me feeling the BLAME was placed on me.
Oh, I know better. But gotta say, that wound inflicted with those words was a painful one.
Gotta scrap myself up and get out of this spot of hurting. I am sooooo tired of this.
