Do you doubt why I'm scared to death? LOL
Thank god the actual dentist isn't so bad....She pretty much just ignores me panicking (Which is good, I would probably go into total meltdown mode if anyone tried to "comfort" me beforehand) and is pretty reassuring about everything. She says things like "Honey, you get on 1200lb animals every single day....Trust me, you're already the bravest of any of my patients."
Lol I'm such a little kid about the dentist. Seriously.
I once got potentially the biggest needle I had ever seen stuck into my toe whilst I was practically falling asleep. Apparantly I was the first person who hadn't at least flinched at that procedure. Stick IVs in me, shove pills down my throat, take my blood, But dear god, don't stick those stupid little x ray cards in my mouth, don't come near me with a mini mirror, and if you try and touch me with that stupid water sucky thing, you're lucky to make it out alive....
LOL, I didn't think Slaughter was still practicing. That was almost 20 years ago when I got mine done!
I hear ya, I am a wimp about going to the doctor or dentist...eeek! And Ashland especially! There is nothing not creepy there...I don't like that town...
