Hi guys. I am so happy this place exists. I am sitting here in a panic. This is the first time I have admitted this to anyone ever. I have a terrible fear of the dentist. I honestly have no idea how long it's been since I went. I'm a 28 year old grown woman and I can't remember going. I also have 5 molars that are broken beyond repair. I think I have an impacted wisdom tooth. I think my other molars have cracks from grinding and clenching in my sleep. I have a visible cavity on my canine. I... Had a mental break down a month ago about something unrelated and now that I am feeling better... I know what I need to do. I'm terrified though. I'm terrified of the embarrassment. My husband doesn't even know. I don't keep anything from him usually but I am so humiliated. I need support to make the call and follow through. I have to go. I have to save my teeth. I'm so tired about worrying about them. I'm so tired of being afraid to eat. I have dental insurance but it isn't very good and we literally can't afford this right now but I have to do something. I'm the only one working right now while my husband gets through school. He's a year away. I know that once he graduates we will have more funds and I will be able to pay things off if I have to charge things. I just can't imagine walking in to an office and admitting that I have broken my teeth and didn't go in right away to get it fixed because of my own fear.
