After a very,very,verrrrrrrry long time I finally went to the dentist.
Ouch.Ouch.OUCH. I deserve it big time though, since I neglected myself (and teeth) so badly for so long.
Then I start thinking about other things and let my mind wander and realize I should be grateful for such pain (sounds crazy right?).
This is why I am grateful:
I can feel the pain, (I am alive and well).
I have a job with benefits with some dental coverage which helps me afford going to a dentist, plenty of people sadly do not (which I think is a crime).
I have a dentist. There are people in this world who do not have access to clean water (an even BIGGER crime,wait,strike crime... it's an atrocity).
The pain is worth it because it reminds me that it could have been FAR WORSE!!!
You know what guys? I CAN do this!!! "This" not only meaning weight loss but whatever I put my mind to. There is so much around me that helps me work towards the positive but I lean towards the negative so easily. I am so full of hope.
Who knew this is what I would get from normal check-up with the dentist.
