For the past few years now, I’ve been dealing with a really bad mouth odor. I’ve gone to Dentist, Doctors, Gastroenterologists, ENT etc and unfortunately they can’t seem to find the cause because supposedly everything seems normal. I have even made homemade remedies to try to cure the odor but it seem like nothing works. There been times where people had made negative comments of me at my last job. Rumors were spread by my co-workers even when customers would go up to the register and purchase something, they would cover their nose when I would greet them, this had made me quit my job because I just couldn’t take it nomore.
For two years now, I’ve been unemployed after I left my job. I’ve applied to numerous of jobs and been to sooo many interviews but unfortunately no one wants to hire me. I’m a very smart young lady with a lot of potential and very dedicated to what I want to accomplish. When I go to these interviews, I go with all my confidence and positive energy ready to get the job and during the whole process, all I see is the HM covering his/her nose or fanning their self with my resume. So once this starts to happen, you already know how I’m starting to feel. I just wanted to get the f*** up out of there and cry.
You dont know how embarrassed I get when someone approaches me and have to cover their nose or make that face expression when they smell a foul odor. The most sad part is that I’m supposedly surrounded by people that loves me and never did someone tell me nicely that they had noticed something weird for a while. Even though, I know no one wants to hurt me but I had prefer someone keeping it real with me instead of finding out through negative comments. There was this girl who I thought was my friend who had invited me out to eat one day right… She had also invited two of her other friends as well. One of the guys had asked me why I would cover my mouth everytime I would talk or laugh. So mind you I was already feeling self conscious. My “supposedly” friend had the nerve to say “well she does that because her breath stinks”. When she said that I was shocked like I literally turned blank, like I had no words. I just got up and left with tears running down my face. This wasn’t the only unpleasant moment I had experienced but this was one of most hurtful of some.
It’s very hard being a young 22 year old having this issue in the type of generation and society we are living in today. I try my best to overcome this situation but it only gets worst. Even when I’m surrounded by my family members all they do is cover their nose and laugh out of the blue when I speak. So it’s like how I expect to feel better when I’m surrounded by people that do these types of things. No one wants to even date me or be around me so I just got used to being alone. I literally have no one I could express myself to or just to even talk.
