Dentist of Doom Update

I went to the dentist this morning with my youngest (who had 7 freaking cavities) so that we could both have work done to fix our pie holes.  I don't have 7 cavities, thank the heavens, but I do have a crack in a pre-existing filling and a couple of cavities in my very back teeth.  My youngest goes first and does amazingly well; at least I didn't hear any screaming going on.  The nurses all love him and he walks out with a surgical mask and rubber gloves. 

Now it's my turn and I really wasn't thinking of what was to come.  If my youngest can take it, I can too!  They shoot me up 4 times and immediately I have a full blown panic attack.  I turn white as a ghost, can't breathe, sweating like a whore in church, and crying uncontrollably.  The nurse put my chair up and handed me tissues while trying to talk me down.  I felt like an idiot! 

After I calmed down enough to where I wasn't snotty all over the dentist, I sat in the chair for 2 flipping hours with my mouth hanging open and tools of torture jabbing the crap out of my paralyzed face.  Now, I'm an emotional basket case.  I feel terrible!  My head is pounding and I feel as though I could cry all over the place.  All I really want is a grilled cheese sandwich, tomato soup, and ice cream; none of that low-fat bull shit either.  I just need to go to bed and forget this day ever happened.

FUNNY but not for you so SORRY! I have dental phobia and need to go- I was so good for many years and then had a root canal and hated the dental dam and won't go back..DRAT it. My grandson had 3 cavities and he and DD were not happy campers either. Off this awful are you doing with the weight? I never thought I could last this long low carbing but it is definitely working for me! I don't have to cook for a family though and I can get rid of all snacks. For some reason I don't crave sugar although I am looking forward to mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving. I also have seeral bags of Halloween candy that I will throw away if I have to- REALLY! I guess with 3 boys no cause to do that for you. Advice is to PLAN ahead!

Nan, my weigh in is tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to it since I have been snacky all week. But I also know that I can't have 4 pound losses every week (even though it would be FABULOUS!).

I'm not a big candy person, so Halloween is not that big of a deal. I don't buy candy since we usually trick-or-treat somewhere else. Thanksgiving will be a whole different ball game though. I don't even want to think about the food!

awwww...I understand completely. It's a rough thing to go through (an anxiety attack). For that very reason, I haven't been to a dentist in years (and I need to go!). I don't have a problem with what they're going to do, I just don't like being stuck in that darn chair! It makes me crazy. Hopefully you're able to relax and get some rest...and tomorrow will be a better day.
