I did it. I…went to the dentist. It was easier than expected once I got there. Although I was nervous and I initially wished I could be anywhere but there, once it began, I settled in and became more comfortable with what was to come.
The dentist couldn’t have been kinder. She explained everything that was going to happen every step of the way. It put me at ease. I was reminded that every once in a while, when you eventually do the thing that you really didn’t want to do, you’ll feel better. I’m not numb, as I thought I would need to be to get through this appointment.
It is good.
I am good.
The relief washes over me and I wonder why I put it off in the first place.
