Anxiety

Ok y’all, I’m really struggling this morning. I’m supposed to go in for a dentist appointment in an hour and a half. I’ve already cancelled and rescheduled TWICE. I have had some terrible experiences in dentist chairs! The shot they give to numb you does not work for me. My body metabolizes the medicine within a minute or 2 and the “laughing gas” stuff also has zero effect on me. So, unless I’m sedated I know that I’m going to have to suffer through many many shots to get even a simple cavity filled. Well, my new dentist believes that he can work on me with a different kind of medicine so that I won’t have to feel everything. I’m terrified though. I’ve been told this before and once they got started and it wasn’t working, I had no choice but to finish. I know I’m overreacting here, but I don’t know if I can force myself to go through with it! Being sedated to fill a simple cavity is very hard on the body, so I WANT to be able to do this. I have every intention of going when I schedule an appointment, but I keep chickening out! My anxiety is through the roof right now :(

I understand. I had a bad experience when I was little and bad docs in the past 2 years. It does make anxiety worse when you are constantly second guessing if you can trust this new Dr or not.

I hope I'm doing this right... Good luck!! I fear the dentist too omg!! I have 2 cavities to be filled next month. (I am a complete chocoholic lol) Thank goodness the shots work on me!! I'm on that Keto diet now. My husband is too. He gets so mad if I cheat. I was getting spanked for that-not anymore. He goes back & forth on having DD. Uuggghhhhh!!!!

I made it through! They tried shots and numbing gels a few times but they didn’t last long (as usual). I decided to tough it out. I was getting a filling and my gums cleaned. They scrape out between your gums and teeth and it’s supposed to prevent gum disease. I wasn’t numb for most of it, but it really wasn’t that bad either. Thanks for the support y’all!! I needed some encouragement and I knew I’d find it here 😊
