You're so welcome. I had gone to some pretty dark places in my head the worse my teeth got. It's honestly amazing to not have that cloud of shame sitting on my shoulder anymore. If you ever have any questions, that goes for all of you, please ask. Nothing really makes me uncomfortable to talk about it, so please, do let me know.

Next appointment is the 14th of June. We're working on one of my partials, and another crown for it to hold on to. This should be just about it, the only thing left is the lower partial, and the endodontist appointment. I'm a bit anxious about the endo, as they are not my office, and so likely won't be as caring, and may be "the usual" which I feel may set me back. I'm just trying to work through the feelings, and talk to hubby when the anxiety gets too bad. Will update on or around the 14th :)

Well, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm DONE with the major work. I have one last root canal on Nov 1 with an endodontist, but I have all the rest done. Got my last partial denture yesterday. So, time for a before and after. I have ALL of the photos, but I won't upload them all unless people want me to. This was the biggest of my past traumas that I have ever faced, and I am OVER THE MOON proud of myself for pushing through all of this. Drumroll please......
