I hate going to the dentist
Monday, August 19, 2013
I had a great morning and everything was going well until I went to the dentist for a cleaning. Once I got to the office I went from a calm woman to an emotional hot mess. By the way I am a therapist. I am skilled and can help calm anxiety, I usually am good at not reacting to negative things and don't get worried much at all. I am not sure what got into me, the dentist is not a serial killer! I think I gave the hygienist anxiety just watching me. She was great though and helped keep me from going from hot mess to basket case.
I left the office feeling like a truck hit me. I figured that I had a choice either go home feeling like crap which will involve eating and tv OR cope in a productive manner. Yes, it was tough deciding. I really wanted to enjoy my self pity a bit! So... I went to the gym and worked out for 45 minutes. The funny thing is that I completely forgot about the dentist! I went home and made a healthy dinner then I remembered that I went to the dentist today!
