Ok people, we may be going off into another tangent. I for one have not been diagnosed with any mental disorders but wouldn't be suprised if I have one now from all the criticism and humiliation I've received because of this condition. I have my Body Odor under control now by the grace of God but the bb still lurks out the crevices of my mouth. I have had bb since I was too young to remember because my mother told me and she of all people would know. She mentioned that she used to give me mouthwash but it wouldn't help and unfortunately, she still comments on my bb. Now from what I remember, I was a happy child and never had or been suspicious of having a mental or paranoid disorder. I was active and social in church and school and I was known as the class clown so this theory wouldn't apply to me.
I too don't believe in self medicating with herbs, potions, supplements and such because it will finacially eat at your pockets and your mind from the disappointment. I have wasted and I do mean wasted literally hundreds of dollars trying to cure this crap and to no avail, I continue to have fart mouth. I'm not as depressed as I used to be since I have found a way to keep my Body Odor under control. This was the main thing that bothered me not the bb because I can just keep a mint in my mouth or carry around lemon water to keep my mouth refreshed. As long as I brush my tongue with water and a toothbrush for 1-2 minutes, my breath won't be as bad but not really all that good either. I know I have a problem and so does everyone else so what else is knew 'cause this condition sure ain't. If God hasn't helped me with this problem by now after all the years of praying then He obviously doesn't see it as much of a concern and neither should I. Hell, there are plenty of people with bb that have healthy relationships because it's something else about them that stands apart from that disfunction and the people in their life are willing to overlook it. They may comment on it from time to time or keep mints and gums for that bb friend but it doesn't sever the relationship. I should know because my few friends and family have put up with my bb for years now. I just recently beging to push people out of my life because it's not going the way I want it to.
Like I said, bo and bb are 2 different things and if I had to choose, I'd rather deal with the bb. I told God that I needed to be healed of both these conditions and He has healed me of one already so what's to say He won't heal me of the other one later. I'm just going to continue to live my little life with what's left of it. I might not be the happiest person around but I choose to be grateful for every day He wakes me up. I just hope it won't take another 6 years to get healed(smile).
People, I think we are drained and we really need to do the only things we know to do but not drain our pockets dry until their is a sure fire cure in the world of medicine. Until then, I will keep brushing, flossing, gargling, waterpiking, staying clear of offensive foods and cut back on the meat so bms are regular. I have always had bb and lived a happy life but recently I've dealt with the bo thing and that crushed my self-esteem to an all time low. I'll just have to keep praying and for the most part keep my mouth shut or keep a mint.
