I have to tell you that I have been frightened of going to the dentist my entire life. I can't really put my finger on any one incident that made me avoid them at all costs but I still do. I have to say though about 5 years ago I found a great woman dentist that is the closest one to being non-threatening to me. Now, that doesn't mean I'm still not afraid to go! Today was one of those times I had to go though as I had a really bad tooth. I knew it had to come out. So I took a calm-down pill and off I went at 10am. Yes, it had to come out however it broke off at the crown and she had to "dig" the root out! The noise was terrible but I was numbed so well, I felt nothing! I'm glad it's out. I'm a little sore but Nuprin is working fine. One little problem is that there is a little opening into my sinuses which causes this funny feeling of air going back and forth every once in awhile. I called the dentist and told her. It happens once in awhile and should heal closed on its own and if it doesn't she can stitch it. (Yet another trip in to the DENTIST!) Well, I'm on antibiotics so hopefully everything will be fine. I'm glad this day is over! Is anybody else out there scared of the dentist?? Common, it can't just be me!!!!!
I'm a retired RN, living in a century home on 1 sq. acre. My wish was to someday have a horse property so I wouldn't have to board my horses. However, I've found the most wonderful full care boarding barn at Winfield Farm and Forge in Grafton. Hoping never to move! I have 2 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I have 1 rescued English Pointer and 2 rescued cats. And chickens!! (Just 2 of them at the moment.)
At 75 I started a part time eBay business that helps fund the care of my horses.
My daughter says I live in my own little bubble. Maybe that's true but I like it in here. I have a few good friends, my family, my animals and all you nice people in the blogosphere!
