I had a BAD EXPERIENCE...

Anyone who has seen that movie " The Italian Job" will know what I am talking about... Only MY bad experience has nothing to do with dogs...

So I am getting ready to go to my Oral Surgeon Appointment. Why all of the sudden do I want to die... Why am I feeling like I am going to be giving birth... I want to cry... and the butterflies in my tummy are making me sick...

I think I have an irrational fear when it comes to anyone looking in my mouth or whenever I hear the sound of a Dentist's drill... actually I KNOW I have the fear, but I am trying to convince myself that it is irrational.
I know I need to get my teeth looked at, and fixed.

I know the Dentist does not get JOY out of hurting me.

I know they are only trying to make me brush better, but WHY do I want to crawl up in the fetal position and cry every time I think about going to the dentist.

I did not go to the dentist for about 5 years after I got married... for many reasons... but mainly because I fear this the MOST in my life...

It will be my life long struggle... and how do I make my kids go to the Dentist when their mother won't even go...

Is there something wrong with a 27 year old mother of two crying the second she walks in the door... I mean I gave birth TWICE, but I can't get a few teeth fixed when they are going to put me under...
Did I mention I never had my wisdom teeth pulled... yeah... I better go... PRAY for me...

Who is your dentist? I used to have that fear when I was little. I would scream and cry and give myself an asthma attack. I had my FOUR top teeth taken out around 7 or 8. Now THAT is traumatizing! And I looked STUPID.

Now, I don't know how it happened and if I could some of my courage to you I would, but I LOOOOOVVVVE the dentist's office. If only I didn't have to breathe through my nose at all once I walked in there. That smell is still icky to me.

Well, you sound totally normal to me.

At least, you just completely described how I feel about going to the dentist.

Even the part about how do I get my kids to go if I'm not willing to go. So I've been trying to do better lately.

Good luck!!! I'll be praying for you! ;-)

I hate the dentist too. HATE IT. I even wrote a post about it on my blog. You'll totally relate.
