In about 3 hours I have my appointment to have the post inserted for my implant. I'm scared. All day yesterday I had stomach cramps from the nerves. Today I have cried once. I am worried about how or what I will feel or hear during the procedure and afterwards. Mostly I am worried for the afterwards part of it. I told my fiancé how I felt and his response was not comforting. In an nut shell he told me his mom had had worse dental procedures and therefore I shouldn't be scared unless what I have being done is at that level. I felt alone in that moment. He is coming with me but I don't expect much from him right now in terms of care taking of my emotions. Honestly I just can be grateful he is driving me because I didnt want to drive the 5 minutes to the dentist and then back. I have spoken to a couple of people who have gone through the process and they all have had different experiences and reactions so it's hard to get a good read of what is typical. I'm just a ball of emotions and I am trying to get them all out before my appointment. I figure if I put it out there somewhere it will release some of anxiety so I can push through the rest and get through the day.
