I’ve been struggling…finally sharing

I'm just been really struggling lately. Things could always be so much worse, but I still thought I'd share some details of what's been going on. Maybe it'll make you (or others watching) feel not so alone. Life isn't perfect and we all deal with something!! I'm so thankful for you all though…truly!!!

  1. Going through anything chronic, especially when you have young kids, is tough. All you can do is move through step by step as it comes. That’s all you can do through life as a whole. Thanks for being so transparent. If anything, it helps others to relate to you even more. Sending up prayers for you and sending you a big hug.

  2. I’m so sorry you’re going through this, Shea. I’m sure your video will help a lot of people going through the same thing. ♥️ ~ Jennifer

    1. Thank you for your honesty I also have dental issues I have had root canals retreated if failed. Sometimes an option.
      Holistic is not a priority but the best trained and educated dentist is a priority
      My “general/main” dentist is a prosthodontist which requires 3 additional years of education in restorative dental issues. He is in Miami My Endodontist is “best school” trained and recommended by my dentist.
      I have had “nice” dentist but I want “the best” to be providing my dental care.
      I’m not saying you dentist are not fabulous but education (plus the latest technology) can provide up to date care
      I’m sorry to hear you are going through this
      Body shaming is for bullies that are jealous
      You are Beautiful
      God bless you and you family❤️

  3. I am so sorry you have been struggling Shea 🙁 Your struggles are completely valid!! Everyone has their own set of struggles and no one can judge whether one’s is worse than the other. Praying you’re able to heal and get relief so soon.

    1. My heart hurts for you. I pray for healing for your mouth and your anxiety. Everyone struggles with something, and the people who follow you and care for you don’t judge you. You’re bravery for sharing your struggle is commendable. It’s not easy opening up about your problems, and I’m proud of you for putting yourself out there. Thank you for sharing your struggle. Prayers are going up for you now, because you shared.

    2. I am very sorry that you have to go to this. Praying for a solution. Your struggles bring tears to my eyes. Hope somebody out there can really help you. We love you!

    3. Shea – It is truly brave to share this with the world and I sympathize with your situation. I have my own health struggles and your words ring true on how suffering affects everything in your life. There’s no shame in that struggle and should not be a stigma associated with having health challenges. I believe one can find happiness even if they can’t find health and hope you find your way soon.

  4. Just because someone’s struggles are different or “lesser,” that doesn’t make them easier. While I know what it’s like to have people making negative comments on your skinny-ness, I can only imagine how rough it is to deal with so many issues with your teeth, such a vital part of the body’s functioning. I hope you find your full happiness again – sending prayers your way!

  5. My first comment ever: Shea, thank you so much for your honesty and vulnerability. I’ve had minor teeth issues and it’s awful. I can’t imagine what you’ve gone through. Thank you for being such a bright light and inspiration! I’m sending big prayers your way, girl!!

  6. I get it! Teeth struggles hurt in so many ways. Hard to even justify complaining about because it seems so trival in the grand scheme, feels more like whining. HOWEVER, it is a hourly struggle and effects every aspect of life, certainly not in a life threatening way, but it is a pain not only physically but also psychologically and emotionally. I am sorry, you are not alone. Good job bringing it to light.

  7. I’ve recently had teeth issues and it’s all too consuming! I can’t imagine how it must be for you. My heart goes out to you! My husband had all his teeth pulled and has implants. It was a long process but he has beautiful implants and no issues anymore.

  8. THANK YOU SHEA! I’ve been going thru the exact same thing. I was born with a genetic disorder and have to have oral surgery constantly and I understand everything you’re saying and going thru. Lean into your faith. You’re a beautiful child of God

  9. I can relate. My teeth have never been the same since I had my son. I take really good care of my teeth (the real ones and the fake ones). I eat little sugar, and still struggle with them. I look at my fiancé who brushes once a day, NEVER flosses and never has issues with complete jealousy. It is hard and you deserve to complain. Let it out girl! We love you right back!

  10. Seeing my partner go through serious teeth issues over their life, I’ve learned what a misunderstood topic these things are. They’re SO hard and you can’t really grasp it if you haven’t gone through those things. Sending good vibes your way.

  11. It sounds to me that your body is taking calcium from anywhere it can, including your teeth, because fillings and root canals usually don’t fail so quickly. It would be interesting to see what a bone density scan (for osteoporosis) would show as you maybe loosing bone density elsewhere in your body besides your teeth. … Because this probably started during your pregnancy, you are more likely to be deficient. It could be calcium deficiency, but it could be one or more of the minerals that regulate calcium absorption or distribution. I would check with a doctor who knows about deficiencies. 💖🌞🌵😷

    1. @M Kel, oh! Sorry! When I mentioned osteoporosis, I was referring to the bone scan that they do for osteoporosis. As there are ailments that target all bones not just teeth, which would show up on such a scan. I guess I should have looked it up and said: the bone mineral density test. … Now that I’m thinking about it, why at her age, did she need a bone graft to her jaw before doing the implants? And why was that so difficult? What ever is attacking her teeth is also attacking her jaw bone. I’d be really surprised if this is limited to her mouth. 16 cavities in 9 months is just not right. My mom got her first cavity at 47. Sending lots of love 💖 from sunny 🌞 Arizona 🌵🌞

    2. My friend got cavities from the get go after her 1st pregnancy, and each consecutive pregnancy till she had to have all her teeth pulled well not pulled but implants her daughter has also inherited the condition, osteoporosis will cause bone lose in the jaw and receding gums but that’s usually if you have the disease for awhile… My friend her fillings, caps all failed and she doesn’t have osteoporosis go figure??

  12. I’m so used to see you chirping and on cloud nine, this almost sounded like a prank in the beginning. It clenches my heart to see you like this, but I can relate to this. I’ve gone through a similar trip after I delivered my girl about 7 years ago. My prayers for you to be able to go through this difficult phase.

  13. Shea! I really appreciate you sharing your struggles, it makes me feel like I’m not alone in this either, which is huge. I know exactly how you feel, just about 1.5yrs ago I started having the same issues with no explanation as to why… I had a tooth randomly break off that I now have to get an implant for, went to the dentist and have just as many cavities all of a sudden that you did, and just had my first root canal. I haven’t been able to eat properly for over a year and look at food and textures differently now too! At one point, I dreamed about being able to chew a salad, it’s crazy. Teeth are something that greatly affects your wellbeing and health, but it’s something that people don’t realize or think about until something actually goes wrong with them. Praying for recovery for the both of us and anyone else out there struggling ♥️

  14. I would love to see vlogs! Even this journey.. so many people struggle with dental issues in general, but especially women during/after pregnancy. It is absolutely a thing. You’re not alone! ❤️ teeth are so painful and you are correct it affects the whole body.

  15. Thank you for sharing your struggle so honestly. I will be praying for you.
    “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
    ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ‭ESV‬‬
    Be encouraged Shea, you are loved❤️

  16. Thank you for doing this video!!!
    I’m 18 years old and I’ve been struggling with my teeth for so long and I really hate going to the dentist but I’ve been going for a while and it seems that this journey is gonna be very long and painful but I’m telling you that THANK YOU SOOO MUCH for your video. You made me realize that I’m not the only one with this issue and that I have to look for a solution to this problem ASAP. One of the reasons why I didn’t like to go to the dentist was because I was ashamed of my mouth but after seeing your video I went straight to my father and told him to set an appointment with the dentist.
    You’re not alone and I really hope that one day you post a video saying happily that you’ve overcame your teeth issues. Love u💕

  17. I truly understand how you feel as I’m struggling with my teeth too and you just don’t realize how it affects other parts of your body until you start to have trouble with them. Thank you for opening up and sharing this with us as we are not alone in what we struggle with. And no struggle is worse than another. You are in my prayers for total healing!

  18. Oh my this was me up til a year ago! I was even hospitalized from the infection spreading to my brain. I cried watching this. My solution was drastic, however for me the right choice. I had all of my teethe pulled, bone graphs up into the nasal cavity and then a four on one dental implant. This was also a process of about two weeks of ouch and then NO PAIN and NO infection and you won’t believe the difference in how I feel and eat! It’s a hard decision to take all of your teethe out, but I am telling you I was desperate! I will praying for you and that God will lead you to an answer that provides relief. I documented the process on my channel here on YT if you want to see the process up close and personal. Too For Cute For Cancer and I believe the title is, The Four on One Dental Implant.

  19. Oh, this is just so heartbreaking 💔. I wanted to reach inside my phone and give you a huge hug. This must be so incredibly difficult to deal with and you should never feel guilty or apologize for feeling all these feelings. I hope and pray that your doctors can find some real, lasting solutions for you. I’ve always loved you and your videos. You’re an amazing person. We love you Shea!!

  20. We love you Shea! You have helped me personally in so many ways… all of your recommendations have helped me find my own style. When I have bad days (I have a debilitating illness) watching your videos is always a fun distraction and helps me stay positive. I’m so sorry that you are having a hard time… know that we care and you are in our thoughts 💕
