I had a dentist appointment last week to have a molar filled. I have always had some anxiety about dentist visits. I would have thought, however, that after going through surgery, chemo, and radiation, I would have no problem with the dentist. WRONG!
It sounds stupid, but there I was having to do breathing techniques and distract myself to stay still…not flee the chair. On the way back down to the car my legs felt wobbly. Maybe long time anxiety trumps the unknown?
