I don't Like That


I had a dentist appointment today, and had to have a filling. I now have a big fear of the dentist, I hate going there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why? Well it's not the smell, the time, the money, the needles, but the drills! Evidently I am hard to numb up, so I now know what the drill would feel like before Novocaine was invented. (I didn't need to know that!) I think I would have cried, maybe yelled out as well if my L wasn't in the room with me. A few violent hand waves was all I could do. When I left I was a bit shaky and the nurse lady just had this look of pity for me!

I have to go back one more time, and I'm a wee bit scared to go.

Ugghh! I hope your next visit is a bit better! This definatly doesnt make me want to schedule my appt... which I was supposed to do 6 months ago!!! Good luck!

Ouch--sorry it didn't go well! Like B, I'm a bit hesitant to schedule my appt...missed it back in January when we moved from NY to AZ and I've been postponing it ever since!

Good luck on your follow up!

I totally feel your pain...I'm hard to numb as well. I think that is one reason labor is ok for me...I'd rather do that then have a cavity filled!! At least in the end you get a beautiful baby and not a numb mouth!

I always tell them I am a big baby and need to be numbed up real good! I know this is so random - but, when I am numbed up good the sound of a drill sounds like a jet ski and I imagine I am out on a lake somewhere enjoying the sound... Like I said, numb me up good and I am happy (OK maybe not happy, but tolerable in the chair)...
