tooth, maybe teeth

I know that almost nobody enjoys undergoing dental work, but I really, really don't. So I have been putting off scheduling a visit because I know something is wrong and I dread what will happen when I go. But it keeps being wrong and feels worse and worse. I will call today. Unless I talk myself out of it.

I've almost talked myself out of it already. I can be very persuasive when I set my mind to it.

Thinking about collecting Dalkey Archive Press. That would be nice. A hell of a lot nicer than having some dental hygienist yell at me for never flossing.

Maybe I will floss for a couple of weeks and then call.

Re: My tribe!
Way to go! I mean not go. The longest I went was six years, the latter five of which were spent worrying about going. I don't like pain, of course, and I don't like being touched. I do like the posters, though, and Highlights magazine.

My dentist kind of specializes in phobic patients, so I'm sure she's seen worse. I'm not particularly phobic, but I started going there because my kids go to her husband/partner. If you want, I'll be glad to pass along her number.

I did that very thing for several years running -- I would floss for the month before I went, and then quit immediately. Then I changed dentists. I got somebody who evidentally thought patients did not react well to being scolded. He was right.
