Something very bad happened. I want to die now :( I wasn't able to stand braces and aligners. I had panic and anxiety. They had to take them off me. Out of frustration I took matters into my own hands. Its sore every day. My mouth hurts so much too. I think of it nonstop all days for months. I ruined my teeth. I didn't tell my dentist the truth :( i just want to die. I ruined everything. My life is misery. They told me i probably wont stand crowns or veneers because of my illness. I'm scared to call any dentist. I made horrible mistake and I am so ashamed. It felt like some invisible force made me do it every day. I looked at them for hours. I am scared. Is this OCD? What have I done? Wish I could die :(
