Re: So glad I am not alone...

Have you flat out asked your wife is you have a breath problem? Tell her that an honest assessment is more important than you believing that they can't smell it. If she really can't smell it, then that's really weird. There is a possibility that you don't have bad breath, but coming from experience, I know that blatant remarks and viseral reactions provide very little doubt.

I have really bad breath and my family either did their best to hide their reactions or I remained in deep denial to protect myself.

It took me quite a while to wake up and realize that I had halitosis, even though people called me "stink mouth". I figured it was a situational thing and not a constant problem. I recall in college people violently turning their heads away when I spoke to them - or even just gave out a quick giggle. I thought they did that because they disliked me.

I had a girlfriend a few years back for 18 months. I was in denial about my breath then, but she put up with it. God bless her for that.

Halitosis is really screwing me up mentally. There was a lot of chemistry between me and a girl that I work with. We rarely talked because we worked in different deparments and if we did it was always just a few words. The other day I decided to go talk to her and she responded really really well. Very soon, I could see her react to my breath. For the rest of the night and up until now she avoids me and even makes excuses to look away from me if I'm walking past her. It really hurt. When I realized I just lost all potential with her, I just wanted to smash $%!@! And now this other girl at work keeps asking me if I have a girlfriend and that she's interested. I'm not going to humiliate myself anymore. I just keep my distance from this girl and speak softly. NOw she feels bad because she thinks I don't like her, but what am I going to do? Open my mouth and give her a reason to be disgusted with me like all the rest? I might as well leave the situation knowing that someone still likes me. I have certainly chased off three girls from work that showed a lot of interest in me because of my breath.

Last night sitting behind my computer I could feel the life being sucked out of my body. Every passing day that goes by I become more and more withdrawn, more and more isolated.

After the aforementioned victim of my breath, who I was and am still infatuated with, I spend hours and hours every day trying to research Halitosis. I have been e-mailing doctors, Professors at Universities, Scientists, etc. I can't see myself doing anything that would be worth while until I can cure this problem. I'm uncovering so much information, but none of it ultimately useful. It's not like I'm going to put all the pieces together and figire out the cure.

I'm only 27 & I'm getting so sick of people at work saying "how come you're not married? Why don't you have a girlfriend?" Like they don't know the answer to that. All I can come up with is "Oh, I'm not ready to settle down." or some nonsense like that.

I'm not even sure if there will be an effective treatment soon.
