Dental Redux

Well, another appointment down a few more to go. I have about 3 or 4 more fillings to go and 4 extractions then a cleaning. I love my dentist, he’s something else that man. Been in the business for over 35 years and a damned fine dentist. Cured me of my dental phobia in less than three appointments.

I still get a little squicked out mind you and tense up when I see that needle but at least I’m not fleeing the dental chair the moment it comes out and the sound of the drill still makes me shudder but again – I’m not jumping up and fleeing out the door like I used to in panic mode.

I showed my husband the work and he said and I quote “I don’t see it”. My response “he’s that good huh”. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done for my health and I am pleased that I did do it despite my phobias and despite the anxiety issues over dental work. So all in all, I am cured of a phobia and getting healthier. One resolution down, many left to go (heh, first time I’ve actually accomplished a new year’s resolution in my life).
