I have to go to the Dentist and I’m shaky and scared. I do want to hold onto my teeth as long as possible so I need to go. I know I need to go and I know there will be some switching going on.

Those instruments are scary, and the hygienists are mean to me sometimes. It’s hard to stand up for myself because I’m thinking and reacting to them as if I’m an abused child.  I need to change dentists, but I get tired of it. Every time I find a good dentist they stop accepting our insurance and then I have to find another one.

Today, I plan to put the hygienist in her place if she starts telling me I need to take better of care of my teeth in a condescending way. I’ll let you know how it went.
