what is it about dentists that brings me out in a cold sweat and fills me with dread - i am supposed to be a grown woman for goodness sake! however i have put up with what started as a slight 'niggle' last saturday, then turned into a steady throbbing and finally yesterday painful throbbing! instead of making an appointment straightaway, although had to wait til tuesday cos of bank holiday, i was trying to convince myself that it would all settle down eventually!
well it has not settled down and so i have an appointment for tomorrow. i know when i wake up there will be the familiar stomach lurch and gradual panic! i don't know why - my dentist is a lovely kind woman, who takes her time with me and tells me what she is doing every step of the way - i should think when she sees my name on her appointment list she must think 'oh here comes the gibbering idiot' cos thats what i turn into!
thank god my children can't see me!
i think actually i would rather have a baby than go to the dentist! really i would!
gonna go and have a soak in the bath tub in some relaxing bubble bath - hopefully to send me to sleep - although i rather think a gin and tonic might be better - or any alcohol for that matter!
