Fool... but no pity.
I'm NOT being facetious when I say... maybe someone like Oprah Winfrey might help.
Oprah recently did a show on the evils of elective plastic surgery. If presented with a tape from someone who needs surgery on a non-elective basis--for straight up medical reasons--perhaps she could build a show around the RIGHT uses of surgery.
It would have to be a heck of a tape you send her though--covering all the right talking points: 1.) that you need this for your health 2.) that you know you'd likely not get help from the exploitive Surgery shows, because they'd urge facial implants and other creepy dangerous stuff you don't want to get near 3.) That the classic outlets for assistance are ignoring you
The teeth might be a harder sell.
I think the only thing you need is a breast reduction. If you're that positive your teeth are bad, then you could do that as well.
Otherwise, I see nothing wrong. Really, I think you only need a good day at a spa. Get some makeup, style your hair, ta-da. You definately don't appear to need any plastic surgery what-so-ever.
I don't think you need anything extreme either, Mom2Jazzy, and I'd be concerned that if you went on a show they would go to far when really all you need is a couple of adjustments.
I can empathize about the breast reduction thing, though. I'm nowhere near as large as you, but am big enough that I sought out a reduction after years of pain & strain, and crying because I could never find my bra size. My doctor recommended it because she said it was actually causing me difficulty with breathing (do you have anything like this? because of the weight on your lungs?) but my insurance didn't approve it, saying it was an elective cosmetic procedure.
Hang in there, and please PM me if you want to talk more about any of this stuff. I don't want to think applying to a reality show would be your last resort--unless it's something you're convinced you really want to do. If that's the case, please tell me it's Extreme Makeover and not The Swan.

I think your cute. There nothing I see that suggests you need an extreme make over. I understand you want breast reduction and you would like some dentistry done ,but I agree with the others here,I think you look fine.
I think Insurence companies are very biased. For instance a female friend of mine was unable get her insurance company cover treatment for varicos veins,but if she were a man then the insurance company would cover treatment ....elective cosmetic surgery. How is it not elective for men then.
Did you ever hear from EM again?
Hi, I like you believe I would be the perfect candidate. I have a birth defect, they can fix, along w/my teeth, breast augmentation, tummy tuck. Having 2 kids really does a number on the body ( : I have sent my tape in for the 2nd time. I feel like if not chosen this time, I will try & try again..Good Luck & let me know the outcome...
