Dentist appointment :(

Tomorrow morning. Help Seriously though, I have to go down there alone, speak to the secretary, wait there with a bunch of strangers, then have some guy shine a bright light in my eyes and probably drill holes in my tooth I don't know how I'm going to cope, can't avoid it though

Do you know you've gotta have a filling, or is that just what you think? 9/10 people THINK they gotta have something done and its absolutely fine :P The worst part is the waiting room and secretary I feel. I have to do that at the doctors when I go alone. I just nod and say hello to the person I sit next to and try not not make eye contact the rest of the time heh. It can be agonisingly long at times though.

If i HAVE to go somewhere, i'm not soo bad....

I don't have a problem going to the eye doctor and dentist, yet i'm still very nervous...I feel like I should be there ya know?

Going places i don't have a good reason to go = not good for me.....

Last time I had some cavities & root canals I did the oral conscious sedation since I tend to freak out at the dentist sometimes. I'd say it really helped & you're not totally under so you're still kinda aware of what's going on but it's a helluva lot better. I was asleep for like half of it & in a groggy dream state the rest of the time.
