Here on my blog and in life, I usually talk a pretty big game. In reality, I have 2 BIG fears. Nothing deep, nothing profound.....the Dark and the Dentist! Yes, I am a 36 year old that's not afraid to try anything but that is terrified of the dark and the dentist. For both of these, I am scared to the point of profuse sweating and tachycardia! NO JOKE! This week I had to face one of those fears. THE DENTIST. I had no choice but to reluctantly drag myself in the office for a root canal and a crown. I WAS freaking out! It took every ounce of energy I had to make myself go. Don't think I didn't consider cancelling. I went. You know what? It wasn't that bad! The gas is always a must for me but after this trip I have a new "must" for all future procedures.....my headphones. Throughout the procedure, I kept my earphones in one ear, put it on my "chill" playlist, and closed my eyes. In no time, he was done. What seemed like a quick 15-20 minutes was actually an hour. It was almost relaxing. Ok, almost! ;)
Needless to say I survived! Thanks to gas, Ray LaMontagne, KK, and the awesome folks at Dr. Trehern and Dr. Wells office!
