My tooth hurts.
I had to make a dentist appointment. I’m going to a new dentist, because I’m pretty sure my old one did some shoddy work. She’s also the reason I’m terrified of going, even just for a checkup.
As soon as I felt the pain, I spiraled into a full blown panic attack, fighting back tears at the thought of going to the dentist. It took me a really long time to calm down enough to make the phone call, but I did it. I’m still freaking out. I won’t be able to stop thinking about it until I go. When it comes time to actually go there, it will happen all over again.
This isn’t normal, is it?
