Tomorrow I am scheduled to go to the dentist and I'm having a hard time getting to sleep. I hate the dentist and honestly I'm deathly afraid! While waiting for my son to finish his dentist appointment a couple of weeks ago, I thought about the last time I went for a check-up. Honestly, the last time I sat in that death trap of a chair was while I was pregnant 8 years ago. 8 freaking years ago!!!
But doesn't this represent the cycle of my life? I haven't taken care of my teeth, my body, my mind, my heart, my soul, my everything. The factor that hit me the hardest was how can I be a role model to my kids about respecting their bodies if I don't even respect mine.
I'm going to drag myself the dentist, even if I'm mentally kicking and screaming, but this is one major step that I'm taking in order to better care for myself. Here's hoping the dentist is understanding about my lack of dental care and fear of his instruments of doom.
