SoCS: Dentist

Because I  journal and do morning stream of consciousness exercises,
I am again trying to participate in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday
I write to a timer, 15 minutes, no editing except spelling, and of course I add my art!
You can do it too!

Any day at the dentist is a bad day.  I hate them I really do.  Not the woman, but the profession.  I had two fillings and due to terrible experiences from age 14-35 with dentists who did not believe or understand that the pain meds were not working despite me screaming and crying I endured pain pain pain and so now the smell of the dentist and the sound of the drill sends me into  an actual anxiety attack. Shaking.  Really.

Any day mark-making is a good day, in the end.  I was able to draw for the teeth cleaning a month ago because they gave me only a Valium, but yesterday I took a muscle relaxer and a pain killer so I was well out of it and I still was shaking to much to make art, literally shaking — yes people do that when they are scared out of their minds.  So no art, no mark making, and so not a great day.  Walking through the market picking up dinner was an experience and I had to hold onto M’s arm for stability and was sleepy but there was cake.

    Mmmmm, cake. I’m OK with the dentist, once we get past that first needle. That scares the crap out of me.
