My mouth has something foreign in it.

Today I went to the dentist to get a cavity filled. I actually have had this cavity for a year. I got it when I was pregnant with Seth. Everything was so different with that pregnancy and discovering a cavity was no surprise. So, after putting it off forever, I made the appointment to get it filled. Of course I was a little nervous that it would turn out to be really bad because I had waited so long. Needless to say it still was a surface cavity. I am crazy, that's all I have to say. I was fine until my mouth started to go numb. And then I had to put my head between my legs because that crazy thing called anxiety decides to make it's appearance and it makes me feel a little light headed. Luckily it never got real bad because I have been learning how to keep it under control. After a few minutes I was able to sit back and enjoy the drilling. I've never had a cavity before so I didn't know what to expect. All I have to say is having a cavity filled is a piece of cake compared to having a tooth pulled! I've had several teeth pulled by the dentist including my sole wisdom tooth. Why is it as we get older is it harder to handle all this stuff? I remember as a kid having teeth pulled was kind of exciting in a way! Maybe it's a combination of hormones and too much experience with traumatic experiences that cause us to succumb to anxiety. Argh! Not gonna miss that one when I'm resurrected.

i am a mercury mouth too but i still get anxiety when i go to the dentist because i HATE it, i wold rather get a womanly exam than get dental work done! HAHAH, ok maybe not that bad but i still get anxious over the dentist. i am afraid they will start drilling and it will hit a nerve that is not numb yet.....and then coming out of the numbness....OH MAN time for me to put my head between my legs HAHAH
